I'm asking for help from other Yoast users (WordPress SEO).
I use the non-premium version of Yoast for SEO on some of my sites, including Genesis / Studiopress sites. In my current project, I'm using Enterprise Pro, an html 5 child theme. It's being developed locally, so I don't have a link to provide
I notice that when I try to save a focus keyword, it doesn't stick. If I use the bulk editor for meta description and/or title, that works fine. Curious why the focus keyword won't save. Any thoughts?
PS: please refrain from expounding upon the virtues of native SEO in Studiopress themes and try to talk me out of using Yoast. That's not the point of this question.
PPS: please also don't just tell me to contact Yoast. Looking for input from Yoast users in this community.
Is the plugin updated to the latest version? Sorry, had to get this question out of the way.
Oops. Sorry, should've mentioned that. Yes, WordPress SEO plugin is current.
I had a few issues with it after downloading a site and changing theme to Enterprise Pro
Try uninstalling and reinstalling. All my data was still there. Tested by changing focus keyword, hitting update and it does save but only if you hit update post - not by typing in the focus keyword as normal - give it a go. Im working on local dev. Maybe its a theme specific clash??
Hope this helps
I eventually answered my own question. The conflict was with a video player plugin (Simple Video Pro). When I re-positioned the SVP settings in page/post view to be above the settings for Yoast - rather then below (by manually dragging the SVP group of settings to the new position) - problem solved. No idea why this makes a difference, but it does.
