    I’m running
    WPML Multilingual CMS Version 4.0.3

    WPML Translation Management Version 2.6.3
    WooCommerce Multilingual Version 4.3.7

    I really need to get this fixed. I’ve already tried to get in touch with WPML but I haven’t heard back.

    Thanks again

    Hello and thank you for contacting us.
    I see that you are using quite an old WPML version and WPML addons versions…

    Please update to the latest version and I am pretty sure that the error will be resolved.

    Remember to create a backup before upgrading.

    I updated WPML and the error has not been resolved. I’m getting the same error. Not sure what to do now. I can’t set the visibility for products. We’re trying to hide simple products from the catalog because they’re part of a group.

    That is very strange.
    You said that you have contacted us in our forum?
    Can you direct me to the ticket link?

    I feel that I need to take a closer look and check what happens, as I cannot reproduce a similar error in my testing setup.

    I have the same error with this plugin. I don’t have more information to bring though.

    I managed to fix the error. Turned out if was related to In Stock. When bulk editing products make sure that all options are set to No Change except visibilty. For some reason when some products were in stock and others out of stock, the option was set to In Stock which caused the issue.

    I did some checks and our problems started the very day we updated from 4.3.6 to 4.3.7.

    Even if you “solved” your issue by fixing your code, the plugin can still trigger a “Fatal error”. Our code had been working for months. At first sight, it seems linked to the attributes changed that were done.
