I’d like to report a bug I’ve noticed in the breadcrumb generated by Yoast SEO.
When an article is published by the REST API application password feature (default wordpress functionality), the category that appears in the breadcrumb is the default wordpress category.
However, the specific category is selected in the admin and the article is listed in the correct category page. It’s just the breadcrumb that’s wrong.
To correct this, I simply need to update the article manually (without modifying anything) and Yoast then displays the correct category in the breadcrumb trail.
It seems that Yoast is unable to retrieve the category when the article is published via REST API and therefore displays the default category in the breadcrumb.
I’ve tested this on several sites using different themes and it seems to me that Yoast is the only one responsible for this behavior.
I invite you to test by yourself and you’ll certainly get the same result.
It would be great if you could apply a fix in one of the next updates 🙂
Thanks in advance
