    ‘Titles and Metas in the Yoast SEO’ meta box disappears. Kindly give solution to solve

    I am panicking because this just happened to me when I updated Yoast and updated WordPress. I’ve lost all metatags and all data pertaining to SEO. What is the solution please?

    same here, all metaboxes are gone on pages. my workaround is to deactivate
    the all in one security pluging and reactivate it. that brings the metaboxes back.
    the procedure has to be done on every login… before both worked great together for years.. problem appears also in twentyseventeen theme…please solve the issue 🙂
