WordPress SEO by Yoast
[resolved] "Edit Files" not showing in SEO plugin (3 posts)

    When I installed this plugin, the Edit Files option does not appear in the menu below SEO on the dashboard. I cannot find or edit the robots.txt or .htaccess as a result.

    Any thoughts on why this doesn't appear, or what other settings could be conflicting?

    We're using a Genensis theme version 2.1.2.

    Same issue for me on several (but not all) sites. Suspect a plugin clash, perhaps with W3TC.

    Our developer figured it out. It was a plugin clash. They had a security plugin installed to prevent editing of .htaccess. Nice feature, but I needed to edit it so they fixed that for me.
