  1. Here is a problem with how RankMath treats long titles, as it modifies the slug. A long title is shortened by RankMath, and if a writer hits Enter while viewing it, it locks in the shortened version. Also, because the shortened version is shown it can't be easily edited. - to edit the slug, you have to either hand-type it or copy and paste the title into it and then edit it. Here is a short video that describes the problem: https://youtu.be/TYRhbs-mB9s I love RankMath!
  2. Hello Montgomerie. This doesn't happen to me. I've tried 4 browsers. - Firefox, Vivaldi, Chrome, Safari. The only person who reported this uses a Microsoft PC with Microsoft Edge browser. My guess is that either something happened and that browser didn't bring down the CSS file that controls the size of that Admin Bar icon or that browser doesn't respond to the CSS command that sizes the icon. I don't think there is anything to be learned from connecting in this system. Thanks for asking, but I think its a waste of your time. Just turning off the admin bar solves the problem for now. Alan
  3. Hello Jitendraa, yes, that is what I thought, too, but not only didn't it help, it made it worse! That writer uses the Microsoft Edge browser. Of course, it could be that he didn't follow the cache clearing instructions correctly, but he said that not only did it not cure the problem, but also the same thing happened on the front end of the site, which it didn't before. So for now, I have installed a plugin that removes the whole admin bar. That did solve the problem and it didn't appear to affect the RankMath plugin's other operations. What I really wanted to do was to only allow the RankMath icon in the admin bar of the administrator, but none of the other member levels. But I couldn't make that work, so it could be that you are using a non-standard way to add the RankMath menu to that top bar. I think this would be a good option to add to the plugin at some point - not put it in the admin bar, not allow it in the front end and only allow it for the administrators. Alan
  4. One of my writers has a problem with the RankMath entry in the top admin bar. As shown in this video: https://youtu.be/866v6BWX8l0 How can I remove RankMath from the top admin bar - I never use it from there and none of my writers need access to it.
  5. The plugin crunches URLs in both the top URL edit field and also in the "mobile preview" area. It could be this is only an internal thing, but it is extremely disconcerting, especially as I currently have 20 other writers. For example, a URL should be this: new-supplement-can-counter-aging-for-real But in the Permalink URL under the main title, it shows as: new-supplement-c-r-aging-for-real ‎ And also in the mobile preview area, it looks like this: new-supplement-c-r-aging-for-real And so if I click on that to edit it, it shows this: new-supplement-c-r-aging-for-real So that means I have to either type what I want or I have to copy and paste the title there and then edit it. Here is a bigger problem: If one of us starts to edit that slug and hits enter instead of escape, it sticks like that, and we can't tell if it will publish like that or if it is just a visual shortening. - and yes, it does publish like that. Other than this, I love the plugin, you guys have done an amazing job. I'm looking forward to seeing the google news sitemap and other things you're working on, so I can drop a few more plugins.
  6. Hi. FYI: I made a table of contents in a story, similar to the one you have in the knowledgebase, but RankMath says I don't have a ToC I used standard UL and LI tags Alan.
  7. Thank you Montgomerie. I'm just passing on information, to help you make improvements. Keep up the good work, your team is doing great things! Alan.
  8. Plugin says I have no Analytics, but it is there. Maybe because you're not looking for this? <script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-999999999-9"></script>
  9. Thank you for finding that. I will show that to the NewsMag Pro developers. Alan
  10. Added cpanel URL info
  11. Added CPANEL info
  12. Thank you. I tested it by following your suggestion, but that didn't work either. Sensitive data has been added.
  13. I installed the plugin, set settings and refreshed the front page of the site. It never loads - goes into a permanent loading loop. Deactivate the plugin, the site loads. - I should have tried reloading before doing any settings! Reactivated plugin and turned off all modules - loading still fails. Deactivated all other plugins - still fails. I can send you a copy of the Macho Themes Newsmag Pro theme if you want to test it. FYI: Yoast SEO v7 fails the same way. Alan.
  14. Thank you Montgomerie - that worked. I will try it in the next few hours and let you know what happens.
  15. Thank you Montgomerie. Unfortunately, the system won't allow me to download it. It says: "The page you are trying to access is not available for your account." Error code: 2C171/1 Alan
