    Same problem as boah123... upgraded to 1.2.8.2 and was missing the options under the content editor HTML tab (bold, italic, link, b-quote, etc). De-activating WordPress SEO fixed the problem; then downgraded to 1.2.7 and re-activated.

    I'd still rather not install it that way, I don't want to mess up my whole site. I would so much rather install a correctly working plugin, that's all I want. If I'd know this update was going to be like this, there's no way I would of updated it. ;(

    @gabriel I was having the same problem, thought something messed up in my wp-admin, so I deactivated all plugin and activated each plugins one by one and with wordpress seo last, I can confirm the version 1.2.8.2 cause the jetpack site-stats did not load, and the html editor in tinyMCE is missing buttons

    I just deleted the dutch version of the plugin in the languages folder. Now all the buttons are nice in English and are displayed again. A shame it doesn't display in Dutch but it's the best solution for me now.

    Guys if you have Jetpack installed, I suggest deactivate it and see if the buttons re-appeared in the html editor. I turned off jetpack in favor of google analytics and found out that the buttons are back and working.

    WP SEO Version: 1.2.8.2

    I was getting the same blank page issue (explained below) even though I applied all the fixes on this thread. Finally, I deactivated and deleted the Super Cache plugin, and now I got all the tabs on the Yoast's SEO back. Obviously this is not an ideal fix since I need caching plugin, but for now I will wait for an update either from Yoast or Super Cache so that they are compliant one another.

    My Blank Page issue: When I clicked on the Title and Meta link on the SEO menu, the tab names with "Save Settings" button was showing up, but not the tab details on any of the tabs displayed in the "Title and Meta" section. Also When I clicked the "take the Tour" link on the main dashboard, the button was disappearing, and taking me to the blank "Title and Meta" section with blank tabs.

    I had the same problem (missing meta titles) in the only site where I use this plugin. I solved it deleting the file "wordpress-seo-es_ES.mo" in the "languages" directory.

    Anyway, I've created SEO options native in my most used theme, so I will remove the plugin in 3, 2, 1...

    Aaagh, I just uploaded to the latest update and it still doesn't work. I deleted by Super Cache plugin too but it still makes no difference. I wish I hadn't updated from 2.7, I really do...;(

    Still getting problems despite updating to the latest version, unable to add media, pop ups not appearing as a pop up but as an actual page, options boxes empty.

    Whats going on, it seems as if this plugin has had endless updates recently, with this latest one being a disaster. I don't have Super cache installed.

    I would get rid of the plugin but I have all my meta data stored in this plugin so have no option but to keep it...

    I wrote last week about 1.2.8.2 and the problem with missing the options under the content editor HTML tab; just upgraded to 1.2.8.3 (english) and the issue is resolved. WP Super Cache is active as well. Thank you!

    Just updated to 1.2.8.4 and it still breaks the admin. I'm going to have to deactivate it again. I'll keep waiting for a new update because prior to this update it was the best SEO available. I just wish I could go back to 2.7 ;(

    Quick hack: in class-admin.php, comment out line 321, and hardcode the version:

    function maybe_upgrade() {
        $options = get_option( 'wpseo' );
        //$current_version = isset( $options['version'] ) ? $options['version'] : 0;
        $current_version = '1.2.8.4';

    ...
    Obviously not the best idea ... since the array is used in more places. Might get you by until Joost pushes a fix.

    Any update on this? Still getting the problems despite updating to latest version. I'm using the english language, no WP Cache active.

    I too just discovered yesterday and today the latest version was causing havoc with my WPMS install. Not on the existing sites, mind you. Instead, any new sites I added to the network just result in 500 server errors when attempting to access the admin area. The front end of the new sites work as expected.

    I deactivated ALL network activated plugins and was able to access back ends just fine. One by one I've re-activated the plugins, network wide and would retest access to the new sites admin areas.

    All was good until WordPress SEO was activated. Then kaput.

    Has anyone heard from Yoast or his developers?

    Curious...

    Edit: Just rolled back to 1.2.7 and access to new WPMS network sites works when hitting the admin back end. JDK

    I documented the error yesterday here
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-seo-by-yoast-1284-mapped-site-admin-broken

    Issue seems to be with the get_option( 'wpseo' ) at the start of maybe_upgrade() function in class-admin.php. It should be returning a nice array like this (as per parent site) : Array ( [disableadvanced_meta] => on [version] => 1.2.8.4 [tracking_popup] => done [yoast_tracking] => off [ignore_tour] => ignore ). Instead, for child mapped site, we get only : 1pseo_social. Development version has the same issue.

    I also offered a temp code fix to get you back going with 1.2.8.4 or the dev version.

    I updated my wordpress SEO plugin today to 1.2.8.4 and have been experiencing issues in wordpress admin. The dropdowns are not working, plugin's "Titles and Meta" options are not loading etc.

    The frontend seems to be working Ok.. The titles and descriptions in my post pages are displaying as they were before updating. Only admin panel is messed up.

    IS there a way to roll back to previous version 1.2.7.x

    I have database back up file. How can I go back to previous version of this plugin?

    WordPress Version: 3.2.1
    Yoast Plugin: 1.2.8.4

    All these fixes seem to make sense but I can not even get to my admin dashboard to apply them - when I attempt to go to any link once i log in as admin it gives me Fatal error: Call to undefined function update_options() in /home/*****/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/class-admin.php on line 441
    Error and does not let me advance - anyone have a suggestion for someone who is not that savy on programming.

    My version works - apart from the fact that it doesn't show up in the post editor (just the title of the widget, nothing else).

    Any suggestions?

    Has Yoast replied to anyone about these issues in the last few months? You cant contact him directly and he doesn't respond to the forums.

    I detailed my problem here and I am clearly not the only one experiencing this.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-seo-by-yoast-tinymce-missing-white-content-in-editor?replies=1#post-3161587

    Its very frustrating as its a great tool but my clients are getting p*ssed off with me so i may have to uninstall it and find a replacement (although transferring over the seo bits we have already inputted will be a nightmare).

    It always used to work so well :(

    See this thread for a proper fix to this. Hopefully the author includes this in an update.

    Thanks but that only applies to WPMU

    Hopefully he will address all the issues soon!

    @James Olney: I think your issue is different. Mine is the Fatal error in class-admin.php on line 440 which some people have been getting.

    @iDope: yep mine is about screwing up the admin area and tinymce buttons disappearing etc (seems to be the topic this thread started on so lots of people are still stuck - amongst other problems :) )

    To update my previous:

    On a brand new MS install yesterday, I installed the very latest WP SEO plugin specifically to look for the challenge of not being able to get to new subdomain installs. Seems to be working as expected. I'll be adding a few more sites to that network today and will report back here if anything changes with the expected operations of Yoast's plugin.

    Is there ANY update about this error that people are still getting i.e. drop down boxes not working, tinymce buttons not working etc etc. It seems as if people are still getting problems with this, but no response from the developers (Yoast, you there!)

    Although this is a free plugin I do feel somewhat miffed having spent £600 on one of Yoast's website reviews!

    I'm running WP 3.4.2, with WooThemes Gazette 2.9.14 and WooFramework 5.4.2, and using Jetpack 1.9.2 and Yoast WordPress SEO 1.2.8.7, on six different sites. One, the busiest, is at HostGator. The other five are all at WebHero.

    I have had no problems at any time with the blank pages appearance at HostGator. Until Jetpack upgraded from 1.9.0, I had no problems at WebHero either. Blank pages as described in other posts here began occurring at our WebHero hosted sites after JetPack upgraded beyond 1.9.0.

    WebHero's support solution was to deactivate JetPack. I no longer have the blank pages problems on any of the five, but I also have lost all JetPack functionality, including WP Stats.

    I have no idea why the entire package runs well on one web host and not another, but it's worth investigating. For those who need an immediate fix, JetPack deactivation seemed to be the answer.

    Version 1.2.8.7 is turning some admin screens into a white screen of death on a 3.4.2 multisite install. The issue is being caused by lines 440, 449, and 453 of class-admin.php. Seems to be choking on the "unset( $options['presstrends'] );" and "unset( $options['presstrends_popup'] );".

    How the fuck can it choke on a simple unset? :)
