Overview of the issue

If you are using Mailchimp for WordPress (MC4WP) with WPML and you go to WPMLTranslation Management, the Edit link points to a broken URL.


Please, make a full backup of your site before proceeding.

  1. Open your theme functions.php file.
  2. Add the following code:
    add_filter( 'wpml_document_edit_item_link', 'document_edit_item_link', 10, 5 );
    function document_edit_item_link( $link, $text, $current_document, $prefix, $type ) {
    	if ( "mc4wp-form" !== $type ) {
    		return $link;
    	$query = [];
    	$query['page']      = 'mailchimp-for-wp-forms';
    	$query['view']      = 'edit-form';
    	$query['admin_bar'] = 1;
    	$query['form_id']   = $current_document->ID;
    	$query['lang']      = $current_document->language_code;
    	$url_parsed          = array();
    	$url_parsed['query'] = http_build_query( $query );
    	$url = http_build_url( get_admin_url( null, 'admin.php' ), $url_parsed );
    	$url = esc_url( $url, null, 'redirect' );
    	return "<a href='$url'>$text</a>";
    add_filter( 'wpml_document_view_item_link', 'document_view_item_link' , 10, 5 );
    function document_view_item_link( $link, $text, $job, $prefix, $type ) {
    	if ( "mc4wp-form" !== $type ) {
    		return $link;
    	return '';

  1. It’s 2023. Why isn’t that code integrated into “MailChimp Multilingual” plugin?

    Also, it would be nice if you could rename your plugin to match the current name which is “MC4WP: Mailchimp for WordPress”. The plugin could be named: “MC4WP: Mailchimp for WordPress multilingual” in your download dashboard as it’s confusing.

    Thank you!
