    Im running 2014 theme and am getting this error:
    The Text link counter feature (introduced in Yoast SEO 5.0) is currently disabled. For this feature to work Yoast SEO needs to create a table in your database. We were unable to create this table automatically.

    I had my host check and the database tables exist, but for whatever reason, the plugin is not seeing them. please help.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    We apologize for the inconvenience. In some cases, the plugin successfully creates the table but the error appears due to incorrect transient cache. Transient cache typically clears automatically within a few hours and the message will disappear and the link count functionality will be enabled.

    This is an intermittent issue. it goes away and comes back. is that normal?

    We are aware of an intermittent issue with the new feature. We included a potential fix in 5.1 which partially resolved the issue.
