I am trying to:
Import an XLIFF File into ACF's Fields

URL of (my) website where problem appears:
(An internal development URL)

I expected to see:
Data loaded into ACF fields in the administration panel forms, but they seem to be loading into Standard WP Custom Fields.

Instead, I got:
Data not loaded into ACF Fields, instead in Custom Fields or not present at all.

Steps to duplicate the issue:
I need to upload XLIFF file and PDF.

Hi ,

Thank you for contacting the WPML support. We are happy to help you.

Hope you have a translated the Pages and Products Posts to Italian from English and when you import the translation(from WPML>>Translations) the ACF fields are nor properly displaying in the Edit screens.

Please make sure you have the correct Translation settings for the ACF fields, fields group, and custom fields. Check the following links for more details.

It would be nice if you can provide me the WordPress debug.log (not WPML debug information). Please check this page for instructions

To enable it, open your wp-config.php file and look for define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);. Change it to:

// Enable WP_DEBUG mode
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
// Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
// Disable display of errors and warnings 
define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
@ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );

In this case, the errors will be saved to a debug.log log file inside the */wp-content/* directory. Please do the steps to reproduce the bug and check you are getting any errors or warning related to WPML in the log file.

If you can paste your debug.log to and provide me that link it would be great! (This is the cleanest way because sometimes the logs are long and create a complete mess in discussion).

With Regards

Hi David,

My name is Przemysław and I will continue working on this issue. I have found the solution using the website backup provided by Tom Shaw. I am currently waiting for the response from our Compatibility team to make sure that my solution is the only one possible (it requires a little bit of manual work).

I should have the answer tomorrow. I will keep you posted.

Thank you!
