Yoast Changed
By , for WP 4.3.1

The latest update confused me because I did not know I could edit my meta description. Other than that, my social network description manager is gone. I don't know how I feel about that. My twitter cards started shrinking last week so we will see.

3.01 makes pages unresponsive
By , for WP 4.3.1

Ok, so Yoast got updated automatically - and then my visual editors were all broken. Anyway, read the FAQ, and cleared my caches all around several times.

Anyway, so now I can edit again, except it's very unresponsive, especially on big posts. I have a post right now (18k words) and if i scroll through it will freeze, then go then freeze - I assume some JS running and sucking up resources?

Anyway, disabling Yoast and I can edit and move around nicely. Any advice?

Permalink not working after update
By , for WP 4.3.1

After 3.0 and 3.01 update each time I save something in Yoast permalinks of custom post go away. I Have to rebuild it each time.
Leaving yoast at the moment fer others SEO plugins.

By , for WP 3.0.1

nach update auf 3.01 funktioniert das plugin nicht mehr korrekt.
Bewertung deshalb max 1 stern und den auch nur weils null nicht gibt.

Der hinweis das man das teure premium kaufen soll funktioniert allerdings fehlerfrei ;-)

Excellent plugin
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've updated to version 3.1. I did note a problem with the plugin but I did a CTRL F5 in Google Chrome 3 times and everything is back to normal.

Some of the issues I had were:
Pages/Posts were not loading correctly. This was fixed with the above refresh.

It was conflicting with my plugins Redirection and Wordfence. These were both fixed with the above refresh.

I like the new simplified seo section for the posts/pages.

Good job!

Avoid like the plague

I have lost hours and aged years! Wish I had not updated the version as before that it was fine. Today I have had my trust in Yoast badly knocked.

Update crashes the VisualComposer
By , for WP 4.3.1

Nearly every update of the plugin comes with major bugs. This update now crashes my pageBuilder completely. Another update comes with new bugs. I'm really disappointed of an otherwise great plugin.

By , for WP 4.3.1

Every single update (of which there are frequent) will be riddled with bugs.

The update to correct these bugs will be rushed out in a panic and have some other bugs.

Then another update will come along which will also have some bugs.

The final update will usually sort out this round of bugs but don't relax for too long because a fresh update with loads of new features nobody asked for will come around soon enough causing yet more headaches.

If this doesn't drive you crazy then the obtrusive banners telling you that you've just updated the plugin (like you didn't already know) and to check out all the new cool features (that you didn't want or need) certainly will.

Any complaints are swiftly dealt with in the same manner btw. Along the lines of "we are Yoast and are the best thing in the world, so if you don't like it find another plug in". Which is, actually, good advice.

Was my favorite seo plugin ever- now breaking my post editor with v3+

HELP i need urgently the version before this terrible update.
Your plugin was never on list of suspects for upgrades so didn't test on staging site prior to updating and now wasting me precious hours to fix damage to our site :( - now our main site destroyed - post and page editor options are screwed up. We use The7 theme + VisualComposer and nothing works unless I deactivate your plugin.
Doing that takes away all work we did with meta and the xml sitemap.

Thank you so much.
Used to love your plugin, very very angry about this ugly update you didn't test enough before release.

I want the beautiful well known layout and features of before back please!
i tried from github installing older version but WP refuses to let me do it.
I want my site is functioning again.

Version 3.0 & 3.01 need more testing
By ,

Love this plugin, but 3.0 and 3.01 causing connection timeouts. We're using the Avada Theme, with fusion page building templates. Reverting to previous version for now.
