Dear awesome people.
I need to translate in multiple languages a website and using WPML for this.
Using executive pro theme I recently discovered that the Genesis Responsive Slider & Genesis Featured Pages plugin do NOT load when not on homepage (root url)
Meaning that for my website's example I want the translation system to work like this.
Both these plugins do NOT appear on the translated versions.
I've searched through WPML support but they cannot help me because the plugins are indexable and translatable via the WPML platform...(as it should be) but do NOT load from Genesis Framework part.
I'm thinking that there is a .php limit there to appear only on homepage or root url?
Is there any way around this problem?
I can translate them normally...but I can't make them load besides the root url...
Any help would be highly appreciated.
By the way here is the resources from WPML support side:

The Genesis Responsive Slider pulls content from Post Categories.
Setup the slider in the main language of your website.
Create a "Slider" post category.
Create Slider posts.
Use the WPML Taxonomy translation feature to translate your Post Categories.
Use WPML to translate the Slider posts and publish everything.
This should work for the Featured Page widget as well.January 28, 2016 at 10:04 pm #177790
This should be published in the WPML forum threads for people who have similar problems.
Kind Regards MortenK

The Genesis Featured Pages plugin does not work like this.
Because it chooses individual pages and cannot see the translated pages.
Using the Genesis Featured Posts plugin lets you choose only a category. hierarchy and how many posts to show.
Even if I turn these 3 pages into posts , I would need to display them individually which the Genesis Featured Post plugin does not do.
Any ideas for this?
The slider idea DID THE TRICK! Thanks for this.

Translate your pages.
Install this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpml-widgets/
Add a widget per language to the widget area.
Choose the translated page.January 29, 2016 at 3:46 am #177806
Did this already...
The Genesis Featured Pages widget still won't see the translated pages.
Highly appreciate your help.

When you are in the widget area admin screen you choose language in the WPML menu in the admin bar.
Now the Featured page widget should be able to see the translated page.
You'll need to remember which language each widget represents and only open the appropriate widget.
It is a little cumbersome, nut I made it work on a website with the Enterprise Pro theme about a year ago.January 29, 2016 at 10:00 pm #177886
I wished it worked like this Morten
Tried it , created 3 translated pages and followed your directions exactly.
At the moment is not working...
It just breaks the main language (English) so although you can see the translated versions in the widget and choose the second language, saving the options and returning back to English version breaks everything...
Any ideas for this?
I could give you editor access to check this out by yourself.
