    When I create a new post titled “How to Do Something” this is how the permalink is shown in the edit screen:


    But when I save it as draft or publish, it becomes:


    I understand that Yoast SEO automatically removes stop words from the URL (and I like that too). But why is it saving when it’s showing in edit mode?

    @onlyincebu, Did I say that I don’t like that feature? I’m trying to report a potential bug in the post edit screen when this feature is enabled.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention @naa986. While Yoast SEO doesn’t remove the stop words from slug when saving a post or page as the draft, we can confirm that when you publish it, the stop words will be removed from the slug by Yoast SEO.

    That said the Yoast SEO should still remove the stop words from the slug when saving the page or post as a draft. So, we are expecting this to be a bug. We’re actively using the bug tracking on our GitHub repository so your best next step would be to create a new issue for our developers at You will need an account to create a new issue.
