Hi there,

I am trying to use hidden link for English, and hidden link for Traditional Chinese, and I have followed the tutorial here (URL:, every step of the way, but it won't validate. To summarize, I have parked hidden link to my main domain hidden link on BlueHost (The Hosting Service). Can you please help me take a look? Thank you.

Welcome to WPML Support forum.

Could you please try to uncheck "validate URL" and then save the URL Format ? If unchecking the option to "validate" works and the front end works well then it might be a false negative.

If it does not work, there's a good chance that the settings for different domains per URL are not set correctly from the host server.

Kind regards,
