  • Same issue here. Also blank pages on posts in categories. Seems to complain about out of memory error. Downgrading to 1.2.3 fixes it.

    Same issue here.

    Deactivate Yoast’s plug-in wait a minute, and reactivate and it started working again for me.

    When I applied 2.4 I had not yet applied WP 3.4.1. After updating WP when I switched this option back on again it worked, so maybe related to bugs fixed in WP 3.4. Anyway, seems to be working again now.

    Same issue here, when someone clicks on permalink settings, all categories go 404. If you go to save the setting again, it fixes. but something is not right in this last version, the breadcrumbs in any subcategory page are resulting in a blank page.

    For me at least, I was having to continually re-save the Strip Category option ever hour or so. After disabling W3 Total Cache I haven’t had the issue again.

    This was fixed in 1.2.5, sorry peepz 🙂

    I’m on 1.2.5 and this is still happening. Every time I add a category or make any changes to the blog content, it resets. Neither clearing my cache or disabling cache plugin has helped, either.

    Me too. 1.2.5 but all category links have stopped working…

    Actually broke for me in 1.2.5

    Same problem here with 1.2.4 and 1.2.5 but tags are also broken for some reason. When I deactivate WP SEO everything works fine. I’m not using any caching plugins.

    Not working for me and no apparent fix since I updated to 1.2.5. Just spent a long old time writing lengthy redirects to avoid putting 80% through a damaging reindexing process.

    Great plugin, first issue I’ve ever experienced – will simply hold back on update other sites.

    Since the break, I’ve lost ranking in Google, traffic and revenue by about a third.
    The Yoast SEO plugin was a great benefit up till now, however it’s sad that the support isn’t there.
    I would gladly pay for this plugin if I knew that any issues were being actively worked on…

    Joost is really good at updating people and responding comments when there are problems. I’m surprised this one hasn’t been cleaned up quicker but let’s not forget he provides his awesome work at absolutely no cost.

    Daniel, get an old version of WordPress SEO, strip the category base again and Google will then reindex your old URLs and your traffic should come back to exactly where it was.



    This is still happening to me also…

    Nevermind… I did what others suggested and turned it off. Saved. Turned it on. Saved. All fixed.
