    My category sitemap can't be found. It shows up in the sitemap index, but clicking on it results in 404.

    @amg / @matt
    I had the same problem with my website, but then I realized I only had one category. That category is assigned to a page, so it is listed in the sitemap for pages anyway. Probably the reason why it is not working in the specific categories sitemap (why force it twice to Google?). Just uncheck the categories sitemap if you have only 1 category for it has no use.

    If you have more than 1 category I have no solution. I also have sites with more than 1 category, the plugin works fine there. Same goes @rrhobbs, no idea why it doesn't work for you. Probably plugins crashing into each other or a theme problem.

    I have about 8 categories, and none of them are linked to specific pages, only archives, which are not listed in the page sitemap.

    For whatever reason I got my sitemap index back (it had disappeared earlier today :( but I had disabled the category sitemap when I started having problems and it remains so - All my posts / pages / tags are mapped and Big G hasnt seemed to penalize me for lack of a category sitemap so life is bearable till it all gets worked out.

    I agree it is probly plugins or theme crashing into each other; therein, as they say, lies the rub ;)

    Then I am of no help, sorry about that.

    Currently I'm trying to fix another problem on a new site (submenu Titles & Meta's is not working, rest is fine). Usually stuff like this is 2 plugins not liking each other ór the theme is messing up. Probably the same deal with your site. First thought a re-install would fix it, didn't work. What I will do if I can't find a fix is install an older version (helped me out in the past before, always a good trick while waiting for a version or 2 more new). I recommend you do the same if no one has a solition to your problem. Older versions are found here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/developers/

    For who wants to know, I found a 'fix' for my problem. It is a known issue that the plugin All-in-One Event Calendar messes with the admin pages of WordPress SEO, and guess which plugin I use for my event calendar. Quick fix is turning off the plugin "All in..", changing in WordPress SEO what you want and then turning it back on.

    The settings you configure are saved, even though they are not showing. Want to change them again in the future? Just temporarily disable the "All in 1...etc" plugin.

    Found a topic about this exact problem and saw that the premium version of "All in 1.." fixes the issue though the free version does not. The topic is put to 'resolved'... :s
