Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Tour Won't End

  • Resolved winterlong


    Based upon multiple recommendations, I’ve installed WordPress SEO by Yoast.

    I’d like how to learn to use it, but I’m challenged by the need to hit the “close” button of the plugin’s tour each and every time I do anything within the administration area of my WP site.

    I’ve searched out a way to disable the tour and cannot find one. I do see from searching on Google that at one time there was a “stop” option that was removed in the last few updates.

    How do I convince WP SEO by Yoast that I’ve taken the tour and no longer need to see its pop-up windows?

    Thank you.

  • I have same problem on my WPMU network.

    I solved this problem and should have posted my solution earlier.

    It turns out that because of the default permission settings (which couldn’t be changed) assigned by my web hosting service to the files and folder I uploaded via FTP, my plugins were not functioning properly.

    My solution was to switch web hosts. With my new host, and the correct permissions being assigned, I’m getting full functionality not just from WordPress SEO by Yoast but from the other plugins I am using.

    Now that I can actually use it, I highly recommend WordPress SEO. It’s really working great for me and my first website.

    Great to hear that winterlong!

    winterlong: Please could you specify concrete “permission settings”? I will ask my hosting provider too.

    FYI I have VPS, I can setup what I want…. but need to know what to setup.


    I was on a shared server when the problems were occurring. After some Googling, I found that my original host was infamous for problems with WordPress and permission settings.

    For example, files which I needed to be 644 would be 640 and folders which I needed to be 755 would be 750. Changing them individually or en masse via cPanel’s File Manager or FTP did not always solve the problem. Sometimes they would revert back to their original settings.

    After a lot of troubleshooting and hassle, the simplest solution was to switch to another host and, why not?, to VPS.

    Good luck, bigdrobek.

    It’s not.

    I’ve tested this plugin on diferent hosting provider and I have similar problem “Tour wont end” Firstly it was VPS, right now I tested it on webhosting.

    Anyone have this error and solved it? How?
    winterlong: Please could you more specify the writing rules problem?

    I found alternative solution for this error – plugin “Disable Pointers“, but I think it is not clear solution for this. There could be some misconfiguration on my website/hosting which I donΛ‡t know πŸ™

    I’m guessing another plugin or your server is preventing the needed AJAX call from happening…

    @winterlong, can you specify which files’ permissions needed changed and to what?

    Right now, I’m on cheap GoDaddy hosting but would like to figure out if it’s a hosting issue before making a switch.

    So glad it found this thread. I found this searching on Google. I have already posted about this earlier.

    Yes, I am having that tour button problem. Plug-in worked fine now it wont go away.

    I would try to switch theme afraid it would mess up all my themes setting and side bar setting. took me days to customize my themes.

    Here is my theme shot

    So looks like not solution.

    Anyone tried switching to another theme. – theme setting with banner ads and amazon setting is all customized and took days I would hate to switch themes and lose setting.

    Thanks Kim D.

    Problem Resolved:

    I deleted the plugin =

    Use Google Libraries
    Allows your site to use common javascript libraries from Google’s AJAX Libraries CDN, rather than from WordPress’s own copies.
    Version 1.5 | By Jason Penney | Visit plugin site

    I added this plugin to solve another problem.

    As soon as i deleted this plugin the Yoast offered me another options on the POP UP.

    I also did this prior to deleting the “Use Google Plugin”
    I went into my cpanel – wp content – plugins – wp seo Yoast pluging and changed permission to 777 – then refreshed the browser.
    Then I deleted the “Use Google Plugin”

    Problem Still Need To Be Fixes
    Focus Keyword
    Find Related Keyword
    Spinning Wheel
    Option Appear Top of WordPress Right Hand Side

    Dash Board Appearing Long Under The Post Page:
    Go into options and uncheck the box title post. Post Page will go back to normal size.

    Thank all of you for your support and Yoast “Love The Plugin”
