I’m creating a dual language site using WPML in English (default) and Spanish and wish to have the slider showing on both the English and Spanish home pages. The problem is that the Spanish page always shows an empty slider. The English page works great.
I have created the category “featured” and translated this to Spanish, so that I have “featured @es” listed in the Categories. I create my post in English then add the Spanish translation, selecting “featured” from the category. However no post is displayed in the slider.
Any suggestions most appreciate. Thanks!August 25, 2011 at 10:21 pm #16573
Have you tried assigning “featured @es” category to those Spanish translations?August 25, 2011 at 10:31 pm #16574
Thanks for your quick reply.
Looking at Posts > Categories, the category name in Spanish is “featured”. The individual posts have the “featured” category checked (there is no option for “featured @es”), but when I view the Posts summary page, the Spanish posts have a category of “featured @es”.
In the Slider Options, I have selected “featured” in the category field. I have also tried changing it to only show the Spanish posts using their ID, but I still get nothing.

You’re using a much older version of WPML (1.8.3). I’ve tested this on a client’s website running WPML 188.8.131.52, and it works just fine. You can see it here: http://www.mauriziotucci.com/
I think the free version goes up to 184.108.40.206, though I’m not sure if you can get it from wordpress.org anymore.August 25, 2011 at 11:07 pm #16576
Ok, thanks for that. Perhaps that is the problem. When I tried to upgrade WPML I got some other problems, that why I was sticking with that version. I will have to look at it again.
Thanks very much for your help. Its a great theme!August 29, 2011 at 10:42 pm #16577
Hi, I have upgrade to the paid version of WPML (2.3.4) and still have the issue with the empty slider on the Spanish home page.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.August 30, 2011 at 1:57 am #16578
Would you mind giving me WP Admin access and FTP access to your server? It’ll be much easier to investigate the problem, and debug if necessary.
You can send me the details using the contact form on my site: http://www.khairul-syahir.com/contact-meAugust 30, 2011 at 6:50 am #16579
I tried deleting the Spanish translation of the “featured” category and creating it again, and also re-creating the Spanish translations of the posts and the slider on the Spanish home page now seems to be working as expected.
The site is now live at http://tywo.es.
Thanks very much for your help.August 31, 2011 at 11:22 am #16580
Glad you worked it out 🙂
