Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Conflict with Yoast SEO causing lag on event entry?

  • Resolved jeezyo


    I was contacted by a design client who for a few weeks, has been noticing a bad lag when entering or editing events through the wordpress dashboard. I deactivated all plugins aside from events calendar plugins, and as i brought them back found the problem only exists when Yoast SEO is active. All plugins/themes are up to date. I’m wondering if there is any known issue…ive been searching, but havent found anything. And wondering if anybody might have a suggestion on making the two play nicely together 🙂

    Hey there @jeezyo!

    Thanks for reaching out!

    We haven’t heard any reports like this, but will keep an eye out.

    Sometimes issues like these relate to WordPress not having enough memory to properly run. You can increase the memory limit by adding the following to wp-config.php:

    define( ‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’ );

    This can be set at a maximum of 256M.

    Hope that helps!

    Hey there! So I raised those limits, and my hosting company raised my PHP limits, and checked everything out, made sure it was at the max, and the issue persists. So after a ton of trouble shooting, i realized that its only happening in posts where i also have a Gravity Forms shortcode. So in any case, to make a long story mush shorter, I have a function functions file that uses this snippet: – This is where i pull in events….

    $posts = get_posts( 'numberposts=-1&post_type=tribe_events' );

    If i change this line to reference any other post type besides tribe_events, the lag is gone, problem solved. If i deactivate Yoast SEO, the lag is gone, problem solved. So somehow the query of tribe_events + Yoast is creating the conflict.

    Help? 🙂

    Replace Yoast with The SEO Framework. I’ve done this for my sites and had fewer problems as a result.

    I actually ended up finding a few unrelated posts about Yoast causing lags and was able to fix the problem by disabling readability analysis, under general>features!
