    We have set up a team page with Avia “Team Member” elements. When translating the page, the WPML translation page shows the “description” field as a single-line input, whereas the description field in the Avia editor supports line breaks (textarea field). We use the description field to provide phone and email values and break them into separate lines. In the translation editor however, the complete description is concatenated to one line of text, and no <br> tags work.

    As a workaround, I edited the translated page directly (where the WPML plugin then displays a big warning that you should avoid doing this).

    My question: Is this the correct way to circumvent that problem, or is there some configuration that you can enable, so WPML would correctly recognize the description field as a multi-line text field?

    Thanks a lot for your support!
