[Resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Meta Description Title Keep Getting Mixed Up

    I have a situation where when I edit a post and save it, Yoast SEO either deletes the title and description, or pulls one from a previous post.

    If I edit the post and publish it directly, the title and description are published correctly, but if I need to go in and edit, I must copy the title and description to a text editor, make the changes and preview them, then paste in the yoast title and description and then update (post it).

    I can only guess the database is getting mixed up, and my question is what is the best way to get things lined up properly again.

    I deleted all entries in wp_options that had wpseo, deleted the plugin, reset the cache, logged out, closed browser, rebooted.

    Then I restarted, logged in, added wordpress seo by yoast, and when I add a new post, WordPress SEO by Yoast again puts in a title and description from a previous blog post.

    Ok, now I’ve tried an xml export of posts, comments etc…
    deleted everything.

    reinstalled wordpress, imported the xml file…
    added wordpress seo by yoast, went to add a new post

    and the same thing – on a new post, a title and description from a previous post shows up, and everytime I change it, click save draft, the old title+description re-appears.

    Now it’s getting interesting…

    Deleted everything, db, files.
    installed wp from scratch

    unzipped jpgs to the uploads directory…
    unzipped the 28 active plugins and activated.

    created a new post, with WordPress SEO by Yoast title and description, and hit save draft.

    The title and description – disappeared.

    wordpress 3.3.2
    latest yoast.

    Only thing is a corrupted plugin…so next, clean copies of the plugins

    I’m sure there would be a way to look into all the wordpress table dependencies and fix this puppy, but I don’t have the time or interest in that…
    so I have deleted everything…
    reinstalled fresh plugins
    copied posts…

    and WordPress SEO by Yoast is behaving.

    So, I suspect one of the plugins got whacked…at least it wasn’t a timthumb!
    (anyone have probs with easy privacy policy plugin? it looked touched)

    So it looks like it’s all nice and dandy now? 🙂 Glad to hear it’s fixed.

    Joost, it was a minor nightmare recreating the posts…just started on the comments (groan) when I realized there are no complicated dependencies in wp…so export, change the id numbers, import…and things are looking virus free and fully operational.

    This is a site with just 30 posts…I’d hate to have one of those 100k content sites and get one of these table corrupting script kiddies.

    Yeah those are a pain. Believe me, I’ve been there.

    Hi,
    I’m having the same problem.

    Deleting everything is not an option.

    Any idea on whats causing the problem?
