[resolved] Yoast SEO still greyed out in admin section on all pages (5 posts)

    Thank you for the recent update to 1.4.

    I did this - update to 1.4, cleared cache, optimised database tables.

    Expected the greyed out SEO options on all pages to restored as they have not worked since the last but one version of yoast seo update.

    Tried this - uninstalled all plugins and reinstalled one at a time - but still cannot get SEO options to appear on each page. The pages that were previously adjusted with Focus keyword, meta data etc are all still there, albeit no longer accessible to make any new changes.

    Currently have the folowing plugins in conjunction with your SEO plugin.

    Broken link checker
    Cookie control
    Fast secure contact
    Google XML sitemap
    JW player
    Page tags
    Google libraries
    W3 Total cache
    WP slimstat

    All plugins latest version, and all work OK as expected.

    Tested the page view in Firefox, Explorer, Chrome and Safari(all latest versions) just in case it is a browser compatability issue for viewing. Cleared history and cookies on each review, but all show the same - no WordPress SEO section other than the name, and on the right handside the coloured dot indicator. WordPress SEO page-sitemap created and shows correct results when loaded from the admin control panel. All admin control panels seem to view and work fine, just not on any old or new page. The only other error is that the tag-sitemap shows 1970-01-01 as a title, again expanded site-map shows correct information inside.

    Any suggestions appreciated, and if there is a download link to the past stable versions that did work, might work as a temporary solution.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Sorry to barge in, this is what looks greyed out to me:


    I can't edit the title like I used to before updating to 1.4.

    Hi Joost,

    Thank you for your question.

    I have uploaded three screen grabs to my dropbox account to show you (see urls below).
    The first one greyed out.jpeg shows that no fields appear in version 1.4 and the second after updating to 1.4.1. The third is a grab from the overall pages menu just to illustrate that the WordPress SEO had been previously added to that particular page.

    I look forward to hearing your suggestions as the bug fix in 1.4.1 made no difference to that particular error.

    Thanks again for your assistance.


    ps - Negue.c - feel free to chime in as every little bit helps to get to the root of the problem.
