Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Archives broken using Yoast plug in

  • Thomas Pickard



    Scroll to the bottom of the page. The Archives are broken. Click on an archive month and it just takes you back to the home page.

    When the Yoast plug in is off, the Archives work. When the Yoast plug in is on, they don’t work.

    I found two other posts about the same problem. One post suggested unchecking ‘disable the date based archives’ under ‘Other’>> ‘Date Archives’.

    I did this and it didn’t fix the problem.

    Another post suggested I check for redirects in my .htaccess file.

    I have two redirects, but removing them didn’t fix the problem.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get my Archives working again?

    Thanks. Thomas.

  • Try to update your permalinks setting, and permalink SEO page too

    I’ve done that. No change.

    Ok. You must deactivate all plugins but Yoast and see if it works. Then reactivate one by one to find a possible conflict with Yoast.

    I am having the same problem. I have also deactivated everything else and determined it is this WordPress-SEO that is doing it. Updating permalinks doesn’t fix it, and it also does it with the 2012 Theme and no other plug-ins active. It is doing it in the category archives on my blog, but the tags work ok. I currently have it disabled so that it doesn’t mess up my blog. Looking forward to hearing some resolution.

    tizz – all plug ins are off, except Yoast. When Yoast is on, Archives are broken. When Yoast is off, Archives work.

    The Yoast plugin IS the problem. Not another plugin conflicting with it.

    I just tested this on a vanilla WP install with only WP SEO and 2012 theme and I can’t reproduce the problem.

    Could you have a look in the PHP error log to see if any errors were generated ? Also, have a look at the javascript console, just in case.
    Next have a look at the Apache access log / rewrite log to see what’s going on there.

    Any relevant info you can give would be helpful.
