    Hi there,

    I have manage to save the settings for the home page.

    When I save settings for post/page title it redirects to wp-admin/options.php and a page not found error.

    I was also getting this with aioseo but their support was not very good so switched to this plugin with a similar problem. I deleted their pluging and started from scratch.

    Permalinks are: /%category%/%postname%/

    The site works fine but can't get any further than setting the homepage seo settings and saving them.

    I've now discovered on the settings page that if I use ordinary text then the settings will save. If I try to use any of the yoast %% tags on the settings page it fails with the page not found.

    I have read that the header should be <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title> but why would my settings save when just using standard text?
    It is obviously managing to rewrite with text but not the %% codes.

    My header currently says `<title><?php
    * Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
    global $page, $paged;

    wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );

    // Add the blog name.
    bloginfo( 'name' );

    // Add the blog description for the home/front page.
    $site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
    if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
    echo " | $site_description";

    // Add a page number if necessary:
    if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
    echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'autofocus' ), max( $paged, $page ) );
