[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Can't edit links with SEO plugin and Genesis 12 (3 posts)

    A client has run into this weird problem with the built-in editor where you cannot edit links on pages (posts are OK) when WP SEO is enabled on a site using Genesis 12.

    Edit an existing


    , highlight a word, select the link editor, fill out info in the pop-up, choose to update, and the page changes are thrown away and you end up on the

      main Posts page.

    Same thing with a new


    and you get the warning dialog about navigating away from current page will lose changes. Tell it to update anyway and you end up

      editing a new Post

    I don't currently have full access to the site, so I cannot access the error logs. Has anyone ever seen anything like this?

    Sorry for the odd formatting - I bolded a few important points and it came out this way.

    I also neglected to mention that the client's web person says they went through the process of turning all plugins off and the behavior appears whenever the SEO plugin is enabled.

    In addition, everything works perfectly if you are editing a Post. There is only a problem editing Pages.

    I'm having the same problem on one of my sites. Only when WordPress SEO is turned on does the link dialogue not work.
