Yoast SEO
SEO plugin only working for pages - not posts (2 posts)

    WordPress version:
    WordPress SEO version: 3.4.2

    I did this: Started a new post

    I expected the plugin to do this: Display the WP SEO options

    Instead it did this: Did not display the WordPress SEO options in the post editor.
    Nor does it display them for any existing posts. When I view all posts, there are also no SEO columns.
    However everything is still working fine for pages. Edit a page or start a new page and thew options are there. View all pages and the columns for the SEO plugin are still there.

    I have rolled back to the previous version of the plugin. I have deactivated all plugins and tried the SEO plugin etc etc and I cannot find any solution or anyway of displaying the SEO options in posts.
    The only thing I see is the little colored ball near the Publish / update button - that's the only indication when editing a post that the plugin is working.

    I have tried all steps again today but still cant fix it. I am running Studio Press theme on Genesis.
    When I deactivate the plugin the theme SEO functions appear for posts and I can fill in titles and meta etc but as soon as I activate WP SEO it overwrites these again - really frustrating and I cannot find any way to fix this nor determine what is actually causing it.
