Great plugin, but breaks default 'Leave a Reply' link WordPress option
By , for WP 3.9.1

A while ago I noticed the 'Leave a Reply' links on my posts where broken.

I directly contacted my theme developer but they suggested I checked which of my 39 (!) plugins broke this default WordPress function. For this I de-activated all plugins and re-activated them one by one ....

... to discover the one causing this issue was WordPress SEO, the plugin I liked most and would have never expect to break a default feature. Especially as so many people are using it.

But it's really the case. My theme developer also confirmed this and showed me it happened also with other themes.

So I wanted to post this issue. But NO, you can't. They do NOT provide support. Strange for such a popular plugin... Anyway, I don't like this plugin anymore...
