Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Category and Tags Don't work anymore

  • I upgraded WordPress SEO by Yoast to version 1.2.5 and from this categories and tags are not working …

    I tried to stop all plugins and enable it again, tried to remove it, I tried to install it again and still nothing’s working!

    My WordPress version is 3.4.1 and even though the plugin is disabled when someone clicks on a link tag is redirected to a post using that tag, and when someone clicks on any category is a 404 … Author Archive continues to function without problem.

    What should I do to solve this! Even removing the plugin solves the problem!

  • Yes, I am also getting the same error.

    Go to SEO => Permalinks (no change needed) and submit the form. it resolve the issue.

    but, i fa change any thing from admin part, such as posting new post, i am started getting this error. then i will submit the Permalinks page, then it resolves the error.

    I try it to… Don’t work.
    What options you have enabled?

    I tried several times to send the form as well as trying to remove the plugin to clean the tables and re-install it … anything done! :/

    You’re certain you’re on 1.2.5 and not on 1.2.4?

    I have the same problem and I tried to do the same, but nothing works?

    I updated to the version 1.2.5 🙁

    Have you resaved those settings?

    Yes, I resaved repeatedly.

    Unnistall and reinstall the plugin. 🙁

    Category pages on the last update became no results found.

    After unclicking the permalinks settings for

    Strip the category base (usually /category/ from the category URL

    the posts returned. Was working before but not with latest update to wp3.4.1 and plugin 1.2.5

    Seems that the call for posts was completely being bypassed.

    Hmm that’s weird, which theme are you using?

    I tried to use another theme too, but the problem continues. I tried to Twenty Twenty Ten and Eleven.
    Tags are always redirected to the first post tagged.

    Its an Elegant Theme (MyCuisine) used in blog style. It’s got lots of extra formatting things going on, but this is the first time the post summaries every disappeared on me. My sitemap plugin did capture the posts under the category for proper listing. Just that one change seems to have fixed the posting issue.

    There are some new issues cropping up with the 3.4.1 update which I don’t know if there WP or ET or plugin. such as if I use more than one image in a post I lose the captions on all but one image when I save the draft or preview it.

    Still exploring…

    Joost, I can confirm this issue as well, latest WP (3.4.1) and latest WP SEO (1.2.5).

    Unchecking the option “Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.” seems to correct the issue.

    However, this isn’t a good solution for my client’s site as she has many inbound links pointing to the URLs without the /category/ in the URL.

    We’ve implemented the work around, but a quick resolution to this would be much appreciated!!!


    Please let me know if you require any further information Joost, feel free to contact me directly (my contact details are in my profile).

    Unchecking the option “Strip the category base (usually /category/) from the category URL.”, don’t work to me.

    Some other possibility!? :/

    I have the same problem. I’m using Theme Hybrid. And I have WordPress SEO 1.2.5 installed.

    My taxonomy titles and metas were also wiped clean with the new update. This I can fix myself though.

    I also noticed that the XML sitemap was unchecked. Basically I lost a lot of important settings and broke a few links with this update.

    I have another site that had no problems at all.

    They are both on the same hosting service but they are using different caching plugins. The broken site uses w3 Total Cache while the other uses Quickcache. Possibly a connection.

    Plus the broken site is using a CDN.

    Don’t know if any of that is relevant but who knows?
