Support » Plugin: SEOPress, on-site SEO » Extra columns break the posts backend (but not pages)

    I see there’s been some support requests about this, but they were not correctly diagnosed.

    There’s a problem with the extra columns added by the plugin in the posts page. They make the list unusable, causing the post title to have a width of 36 pixels and more problems.

    This is not happening on the pages table, only on the posts table.

    On past threads it was blamed on the number of columns added, but I routinely use a LOT of plugins that inject extra columns, and they never break the backend table.

    I hope this can be fixed, I was hoping to migrate from a couple other plugins to SEOPress and get the pro version but I can’t use it like this.

    I can get you a screenshot but tell me what you need to see in it. Let me know if I can get in touch by email for that.

    I installed the last SEOPress version, I hadn’t used it before.

    I have updated to the latest version and it seems you’ve partially fixed the problem. Now the noindex and nofollow columns don’t appear with the title vertically (with one character per line) and the titles have a bit more space.

    However, the space dedicated to the entry title is still way too small.

    Here’s a screenshot:

    See the “Título” column: that’s how wide it is. You can fit one word per line there. Even if I hide other columns, the problem remains.

    Here’s with SEOPress deactivated:

    I’ll buy a subscription if this problem can be solved via email support.

    Hi,

    it’s extremely complicated to handle this.

    Some columns are in %, other uses pixels.

    It also depends on screen resolution, number of columns, column content…

    I invite you to remove some columns from SEO, Advanced, Appearance tab and from the Screen Options tab from the top right corner of the post list.

    If you’re a developer, you can also apply custom CSS to the WP admin and change the columns width to fit your needs:

    I hope that helps!

    Hi,

    I did that already (removing columns).

    In fact, simply activating SEOPress breaks the layout of the columns, even with all the SEO columns hidden.

    At the very least, the page title column should remain untouched.

    I use a lot of plugins that insert extra columns (across many different sites). This is the only time I’ve encountered this problem. I don’t find this problem with other SEO plugins, and I can add as many columns as I need with Admin Columns Pro without breaking anything.

    I’m sure this is very complicated, I can’t argue with that, but other developers have figured it out.

    I’m very interested in getting this to work, as I want to use it on a site with Polylang and it has the best compatibility.

    Again, if buying the pro version will help, I’ll do it.

    Hi @stormymondays

    if you hide all SEOPress columns, the title column should remain untouched.

    We don’t add any CSS to this column.

    Again, if buying the pro version will help, I’ll do it.

    You will get support by mail, and yes it will be much easier to debug this. (you have 14 days to ask for a refund, no questions asked).

    Hi @rainbowgeek,

    if you hide all SEOPress columns, the title column should remain untouched.

    I see the problem here: you can deactivate the screen options but when you actually save the screen options, the display is different.

    I’ll go for the paid support and maybe we can fix this. It might be as easy as changing the nofollow / noindex columns to an icon or abbreviation.

    I’ll close the topic.

    Waiting for your support ticket 😉
