    Hi Yoast,

    I tried to allow your plugin to gather usage stats through PressTrends, but whenever I click on Allow button, nothing happens. Then I clicked Do Not Allow button and pop-up box disappeared, but just for the moment. Whenever I open some page, this box reappears, which is very annoying.

    Please, can you check this, I’m sure that I’m not the only one with this problem.

    I have the same problem. Sure hope there is a fix.

    Same here. Quite annoying.

    Yes, it’s very annoying, when i create a post > Appears
    When i go to the dashboard > Appears



    I’m not getting an “Allow” button. “Do not allow” doesn’t work either but…

    You can make it go away temporarily until Joost comes up with a fix by commenting out lines 39 – 53 in /wordpress-seo/admin/class-pointers.php



    Yep @spherical, that is the best way for now. 🙂



    A number of us also have a problem that it has totally crashed our backend. Only have a white screen after logging in.

    For anyone else with the problem, you can go to cPanel and rename the wordpress-seo folder (I added “bad”) then you can log in and everything is okay . . . except that you have no SEO plugin, but at least you can get into the admin side. Need a real fix.



    Update to my post, above, on a temporary fix (1.2.7 update didn’t address this issue). Also comment out line 32 in the same file:

    // add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', array( $this, 'presstrends_request' ) );

    This removes the WPSEO_pointers error that shows on some pages.



    BTW, this is IN WP v3.4.1. I’m seeing others resolving issues because they are running older versions and upgrading to the current version fixed them. The 1.2.7 plugin update addresses versions 3.3 and older but does nothing for 3.4 and newer.



    For whatever reason, the 1.2.7 update fixed the issue for me.



    The fix spherical posted works. Hopefully this will be fixed (for those of us on WP 3.4.1) in a later version.



    For whatever reason, the 1.2.7 update fixed the issue for me.

    For me too, after 5 clicks. 🙂



    1.2.7 is still broken for me.



    This message is really very annoying. It appears on every page load, whether or not it is related to the plugin.

    To disabled this I manually edited the plugin file, and now I don’t see it again 🙂

    I just commented line 32 in file wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/class-pointers.php

    Here is the updated code.

    if ( !isset( $options['presstrends'] ) ) {
    	// add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', array( $this, 'presstrends_request' ) );
    } else if ( !isset( $options['ignore_tour'] ) || !$options['ignore_tour'] ) {
    	add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', array( $this, 'intro_tour' ) );
    	add_action( 'admin_head', array( $this, 'admin_head' ) );
