I have purchased WPML. It is currently breaking my website in a number of ways.

If I have WPML activated, I am unable to edit my posts (attempting to edit posts hangs the admin panel).

If I uninstall WPML, I am able to edit posts again, however my actual website is broken.

Please help me! I am unable to do anything until this is resolved.

Reinstalling has fixed the admin issue.

However, if I ever want to uninstall the plugin, how do I do so without breaking my site?

Hello Morris,

Firstly, please make sure you are using the latest version of WordPress (3.6.1) , WPML (2.9.3) and WPML's add-ons.

# If I uninstall WPML, I am able to edit posts again, however my actual website is broken.
==> What do you mean "broken" here? Could you give me your screenshots?

In normal way, to remove all data by WPML, you should go to WPML -> Support -> Troubleshooting page -> section "Reset" and reset WPML plugin that means all WPML tables in your database will be removed.

Thank you.

I am using the latest versions of both WPML and WordPress.

I'll upload screenshots of the broken home page with the plugin deactivated, and the broken edit posts page with the plugin activated.

Just a note: Removing the plugin as per your instructions doesn't fix the broken state of my site.

Before installing the plugin, my website looked like it does in the screenshot showing the working home page.

After installing and deactivating the plugin, my homepage looks like the last screenshot - ie - pretty much non existent...
