I built a website for my client (in French). Now we’re at a point where we need it in English as well.
Instead of using Polylang for this project I decided to use the multi-language solution recommended by Themeco.
I was able to create the English version for each French page using separate directories for each language: example.ca/ for French and example.ca/en/ for English.
When I tried to create an English menu using WPML’s menu sync, the “syncing” between the french menu and english menu got stuck at “0 of 11”. It never moved.
I reloaded the page, and got this fatal error message. With this error screen, the front-end of the website was still fine (french version only, no english) but the WordPress dashboard was not accessible.
After some troubleshooting I determined that the sitepress-multilingual-cms plugin is the problem. Whenever I rename the plugin directory through Filezilla (sitepress-multilingual-cms for example) I can then access the WP dashboard but can’t view or edit the translated content. Whenever the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin is reactivated the fatal error shoes again.
I mainly bought WPML because I read that you fully supported WPML.
WordPress : 5.0.2
PRO : Version 2.4.6
WPML Multilingual CMS : Version 4.1.3
WPML Translation Management : Version 2.7.2
WPML String Translation : Version 2.9.1
WPML Media : Version 2.4.1
What is the solution here? Who can help me, Themeco or WPML?
