Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see:

Instead, I got:

There are multiple errors in the browser console from WPML. I'll paste them if you make this post private.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I took a look in your website and could notice the issue only happens in the text mode of the page/post editor. As we don't have reports of this kind of issue on a installation running just WPML with a default WordPress theme, I would ask you to try:

1 - Disable all the plugins except the WPML's related ones from your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins menu.

2 - Switch to a default WordPress theme such as 'TwentySeventeen' from your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Themes menu.

3 - Now, test the page/post editor again activate one plugin at a time and clearing your browser cache, then you can reactivate your previous theme again.

Please, let me know in which step the issue occurs so we can isolate the problem. Thank you for your collaboration, have a nice day.

Hi Marcos,

It's a bug with WPML and Yoast SEO. WPML is supposedly working on a fix for the bug if you could confirm with the developers?

Thank you for the updates. Yes, there's a confirmation of a compatibility issue introduced in the latest version of the Yoast SEO plugin, a fix is on the way to be released in the next WPML update, for now you can try the following:

1 - Install and activate the plugin.

2 - Using the WP Rollback plugin downgrade your Yoast Version to the version 9.1 or before, in order to keep it working with WPML. You will find the instructions on how to downgrade a plugin right in the page.

Please, let me know if it helps, have a nice day.
