Support » Plugin: 404page - your smart custom 404 error page » WPML causing issues with the 404page plug-in

  • Resolved merijn70


    Hi Peter,

    My 404 pages display an empty body..

    I’ll try to explain my situation and what I discovered:

    My WordPress and all my plugins are running the newest/latest version. My theme is Avada but my issue also occurs on Twenty Nineteen. In the topics I see some people with similar issues but in my case i found out that WPML is causing the issues in combination with the 404page plugin.

    The problem
    If I enter an invalid url I get an ’empty’ 404 error page, the page title is as set on the desired 404 page ‘Pagina niet gevonden (404)’ and ‘Page not found (404)’.
    Note: By empty page I mean no body and no slider. The logo, menu and footer are displayed correctly.

    The situation
    I have a multilingual website and use quite some plugins. All plugins and the themes are the latest version. All running smoothly.

    What I discovered

    • When I switch to the Twenty Nineteen theme the issue still exists.
    • When I turn of all plugins the issue is resolved.
    • With all plugins activated except the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin the issue is resolved.
    • With all plugins deactivated and only WPML Multilingual CMS plugin and the 404page plugin on using the Twenty Nineteen or Avada theme the issue still exists.

    There seems to be an issue with the 404page plugin combined with WPML.



    • WordPress: 5.2.3
    • Avada: 6.0.3
    • 404page – your smart custom 404 error page: 11.0.3
    • WPML Multilingual CMS: 4.2.8

    Other plugin info on request.

    Hope this can be fixed because I really like your plugin..

    I have the same issue I think: A blank page shows up with the correct title. I also use WPML, also with Dutch, but with a different theme and a bunch of other plugins.

    I have tested with the 404 plugin disabled (shows default 404 again) and with the caching plugin (WP Rocket) disabled (didn’t help). I can’t test much more right now.

    Same issue here, only the default language is showing content.

    Sorry, there was a bug in version 11.0.x concerning WPML compatibility. Fixed in version 11.0.4. Please update and let me know if it works.


    Thanks Peter, the update fixed it for me.

    Hi @petersplugins,

    I did test it and I am afraid that I am heading another issue but I did not have time to dive into the problem. The selected 404 page is not loading now.

    I use the Avada theme and I think Avada generates also a 404 page.. I am not sure how to fix this..

    Kind regards, Merijn
