[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Batch activation on 900 sites = not working (2 posts)

    Hi !

    We operate a 900+ WordPress Multisite install at http://europe-ecologie.net , and experiment Yoast SEO. In order to make it work on all sites, we network-activated it, and launched a batch that installed Yoast SEO options into all wp_XXX_options table. The aim is mainly to have sitemaps working on all existing sites. There's no error, except it seems necessary to go to the Yoast back end to save the Sitemap settings to get it working. If you do not do this, no sitemap is generated for the site (404 error). Once you do this, everything seems to run fine...

    We use WP Super Cache.

    Any idea ?

    I noticed this exact issue as well. To get the sitemap generated for the first time you have to go to each site and click "Save Settings" button on XML Sitemap configuration page.

    I'm not sure if this would work itself out once cron is ran or not but it would be nice for it to generate the sitemaps initially once the settings were duplicated from one site to all the others.
