I'm sorry for asking help for another river rendering problem. I think I've done everything correctly but still the riverbank on this area is not rendering... :(

Any useful tips so I can try to fix it ?

thank you

A riverbank has to be a closed area. Your riverbank is not closed but consists of multiple ways, some are even overlapping each other (e.g. way 232583521 and way 232584270). Try to re-edit the area and combine those ways to a single closed loop.

Hello your solution worked but today I've added some more river bank to it and it broke again, can you help me what is wrong this time?

The way was again not correctly closed (between node 2465534058 and node 2480945078), I fixed it for you. JOSM's validator is able to identify such issues quickly. If you are not familiar with JOSM you can use keepright instead but it needs some time to update. By the way keepright also shows several other issues in your area, maybe you want to fix them.

Also, note that some riverbanks are composed of a collection of ways that are in a relation, especially if they are very large and detailed, or have islands and thus require a multipolygon relation.
