Meta Robots Follow not updating (11 posts)

    On the advanced tab, if you switch from index/follow to noindex/nofollow then try to switch it back, Meta Robots Follow does not update. I've tested on two different instances on two separate hosts, one with no plugins and one with plugins.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem. For a try I set the "point" for a certain page to nofollow and yes it worked.
    Now I tried to go back to "follow", but as soon as I update the old setting "nofollow" is back?

    @Michi1: It is considered impolite to interrupt another poster's ongoing thread unless you are posting a solution or suggestion. As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic.

    @esmi - I think the more people verify that this is a bug, the better. Joost has a paid version of this plugin that has support so there's some concern that he may leave bugs untouched. This is quite a bug so I'd love a hundred more folks like @Michi1 testifying about the error.

    @Douglas Karr: These forums have guidelines. Please read them. As you will see, one of these guidelines - entitled Where to Post - specifically states:

    Unless you are using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster, do not post in someone else's thread. Start your own topic.

    Please abide by this.

    @esmi thanks for the clarification. Those guidelines don't make sense... having dozens of different threads about the same bug is inefficient and unproductive. Have a nice day.

    Those guidelines don't make sense

    Nevertheless, they are the guidelines for these forums based upon years of experience. Please abide by them.

    @esmi well, thank goodness they're guidelines and not terms of use. I'm an avid supporter of WordPress, have developed a ton for the community, and continue to promote and assist. Try to be a little less militant and a little more supportive of people that are genuinely having a problem. We don't need a police state around here - we're trying to help one another.

    Understood - which is why the guidelines exist. Once again, please abide by them.

    There seems to be a bug in the guidelines for these forums. Where exactly should I post about that issue? =)

    @Bnpositive: Please do not hijack someone else's topic to post a completely unrelated question. Post your own topic.
