Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Issues with custom taxonomies

  • Resolved ryandrewniak

    I have 2 custom taxonomies that I’ve generated in my custom WordPress theme. I see them on the Search Appearance editor page, under the Taxonomies section.

    Every time that I try to toggle the Yoast SEO Meta Box switch to Show, and I save my changes, it doesn’t save the settings, and just flips it right back to Hide.

    I tried deactivating every other plugin and re-toggling the plugin taxonomy activation, but still nothing.

    Has anyone else encountered an issue like this? I need Yoast editing capabilities within my custom taxonomies.

    From what I can see, Yoast isn’t recognizing my custom taxonomies.

    When I do an setting export from Yoast, I see the “hideeditbox” setting for my 2 custom post types, along with all of the other default WordPress content options. However, the “hideeditbox” settings for my 2 custom taxonomies aren’t showing up.

    I do see the options noindex, title, and metadesc options for my 2 custom taxonomies, but for some befuddling reason, the “hideeditbox” setting is nowhere to be seen.

    When I’m in the admin panel, and I toggle the switch for the Yoast SEO Meta Box to Show, nothing gets saved.

    Hello @ryandrewniak

    We apologize for the trouble you are experiencing with the plugin. We have some questions.

    1. Can you please confirm if the issue persists with the latest Yoast SEO 9.6?
    2. Have you tried switching to a default WordPress Twenty(*) theme?
    3. If the changes are not being saved, there’s a possible plugin conflict. Can you please perform a conflict check? You may follow the steps here: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/how-to-check-for-plugin-conflicts/
