Recent posts using the same slug

Hi everyone,

See the "Recent Posts" on the right of this page:

All pages have the same URL.

If you open a blog post, the widget will adapt its URLs to the current post.

Anyone encountered this before? It seems like a native WordPress bug. We don't know where to look to find a fix (we're devs).

If you need any extra information or access, let us know. We will create an administrator for you since the WPMUDev Dashboard doesn't work on native domain name mapping (we've been told).

Thank you for any help!

    Hi Vince,

    I checked the mentioned page, and I don't see any issue with the posts listed in there. They seem to have different slugs and different URLs.

    The slugs for the 1st 2 post as shown in the screenshot are:

    Hi Vince

    Yes, I can see the issue and no, this is not a wordpress’ bug. I have just checked the default recent posts widget on my site and it worked fine.

    It seems a conflict on your site. Would you please run a conflict test? Please deactivate all plugins and check if the problem gone. If so, then enable all plugins one by one and find which one is having conflict. You need to do the same with themes as well.

    You can find the flowchart here:

    Let us know how it goes. Have a nice day!

    The source of the problem is WPML. I swear, that plugin is as bad as it is great.

    We couldn’t find any configuration to go around it so we could temporarily fix the issue.

    We will contact their support and help them build a patch for it.

    Thank you for check it out!

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
