Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » WordPress SEO v Issues With Contributor Role Profile Changes

  • Resolved kbolick


    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:

    I recently upgraded to WordPress SEO v I have users who are contributors reporting they are unable to change their password or edit any of their profile details. When the user clicks the “update profile” button they receive the message “Are you sure you want to do this?”, but are unable to proceed further (i.e. no yes/no option, etc). Admin users do not experience the same issue.

    I narrowed the issue down to the WordPress SEO plugin by disabling all plugins, reactivating them individually (deactivating after confirmation and repeating) until I found that the WordPress SEO plugin is causing this. I also have another WordPress instance for another site. I did not have the SEO plugin installed on this site. I installed it, added a contributor and expereicned the same issue. When the SEO plugin is disabled on both sites, the update functionality works as designed. I did not experience this issues until the upgrade.

    I can also verify this problem. Not just for the contributor role but also for the subscriber role.

    Newest WP installed.
    WP SEO version: and 1.3.1 and developer version.

    I tried all three version, same problem here. Both subscriber and contributor can not update their profile or change their password.

    Installed as kbolick advice fixed the problem 🙂

    Hope the new update fix this issue since it is pretty important error.

    Found the issue and will be fixed in next release, due shortly.

    Thanks for the response Joost.

    Thanks Joost!

    Still having a similar issue, but not with profile and password. I can’t use the Titles and Meta section of WordPress SEO; when I try to save, I get the “Are you sure you want to do this?” message, and then it just goes back to the Titles and Meta page, over and over and won’t let me save. Not sure if it affects the other parts of WordPress SEO, cause I only need to/have only used the Titles and Meta section.

    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    Wordpress SEO version: 1.4.7
