Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Readability tab, SEO title, Slug, Meta description options disappeared

  • Resolved kennya


    For all my custom post type pages and blog posts, I don’t see the following anymore in the backend:

    – Readability tab
    – SEO title
    – Slug
    – Meta description

    Those options are completely gone. All I see available to edit is “Focus Keyword”. How do I get those above options back? Did it break because of an update?

  • I am having the exact same error/issue. It must be a bug because of the new update. It happened before here:

    But I don’t think it is a coincidence that both me and you are having the same issue with the latest update.

    Yeah seems like this person also experienced the same problem recently:

    I’m struggeling with the same problem, you can fix it for the moment by downgrading to the previous version which you dan download here on the bottom of the page:

    Problem seems to be caused by a javascript error:

    That leads to the problem, that all above mentioned boxes disappear:

    That sounds like a plugin or theme conflict. Can you try and gather as much information for us as possible? Please perform the following:
    1. Make sure the issue doesn’t persist when Yoast SEO is disabled.
    2. Check for conflicts.
    3. Check for JavaScript errors with your console.
    If you find any JavaScript errors related to Yoast SEO or if there is a conflict with a plugin or a theme, you can create a new GitHub issue for our developers. Please report the issue to a third party developer as well.
    If you didn’t find any conflicts or errors, we think the issue is specific to your site. We’d need to investigate further but are unable to do so on these forums. You can purchase Yoast SEO Premium and receive our Premium email support and we can help you further.

    I am also having the same exact issue in Safari and Firefox (Yoast seems to be working fine in Chrome however)

    The fact that myself and the above users are having the issue leads me to believe the issue may not be a theme or plugin conflict. (I myself tried deactivating all plugins and switching to a default theme [Twenty-Seventeen] and the issue persisted)

    Strangely enough, copying my site to a local environment (via Local by Flywheel) or moving to a staging server (via WP Staging plugin) does not replicate the issue.

    I was also able to resolve the issue by downgrading to 7.5.3

    Please check for JavaScript errors with your console and send us a screenshot of them, so that we may better understand what might be causing this issue.

    Additionally, if you have any browser extensions active, please temporarily deactivate them and check if the issue persists.

    We’re looking forward to hearing back from you.
