[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Plugin breaks nextpage post pagination (2 posts)

    Through process of elimination, I discovered that WordPress SEO breaks post pagination on my WordPress installation.

    I.e. Post pagination using the <!--nextpage--> shortcode inside posts.

    This is my permalink structure:


    I thought the problem could be my permalink structure but I've discovered that post pagination is still broken if the default "ugly" permalink structure is used.

    I.e. ?p=1234&page=2

    Disabling WordPress SEO restores post pagination functionality.

    I turned off the "Enforce trailing slash" option under the WordPress SEO Permalinks configuration section but still no luck getting it to work.

    I really do like WordPress SEO and would hate to be forced to uninstall it. If anyone could shed any light on how I might be able to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Just a follow-up to my original post...

    I confirmed that this is not a theme issue or a browser issue.

    I tested post pagination with WordPress SEO enabled with three different themes under Firefox and Chrome.

    In all cases, all post pagination page links fail to function properly and multi-page posts will only display the first page, regardless of which page number link is clicked.

    Disabling WordPress SEO restores post pagination functionality in all cases.
