  1. Thank you. I suspected it might be something to do with redirection after I saw changes in that code. Do you know which redirect it was? Was it a regular expression? Alan
  2. I deactivated every plugin. If rankMath 16 is activated, pages do not load, other than the front page. If RankMath is deactivated, it works. If I toggle RankMath on and off, the pages/posts fail and work, in line with that, with nothing else changed, so it must be RM 16 The theme has not been updated since December 31st. So the only thing different is RankMath 16 I retrieved a copy of v15 and it works perfectly. Does 16 depend on anything in Wordpress V5 ? - I am on 4.9 - I doubt it because my other sites, that don't use the TagDiv Newspaper these are working OK. But none of those other site use RankMath redirection or some other RankMath features. It looks like you changed some of the redirection code in V16 Alan
  3. Hello, I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further? Thank you.
  4. The latest rankmath update killed every link on my site - 30,000 of them, other than the home page. 1.0.16 none of my pages will open. Alan
  5. RankMath encourages my writers to put a number in the headline or they lose points. I run newspapers, not blogs, so I don't want a number in every story headline and I don't want RankMath telling writers they need one. It would be great if it was possible to turn off that item in the headline suggestions.
  6. I have 600 authors, but the author sitemap only shows 149 - these are the 149 that have recent changes to the author's profile. This is contributing to google, Majestic and other crawlers not being able to access older stories. I edited one author's profile and now his profile is included in the sitemap. I could go edit the other 450, but fixing the RankMath sitemap code would be a better thing to do. I will edit a few that I care about most. - as a result of this and one other RankMath issue, many of my pages now have zero trust flow and my traffic is dropping like Elon Musk's rockets.
  7. Thank you. I changed this to 500 links per sitemap file and now it works. Alan
  8. This could be a problem with my theme or with the combination of the plugins I use. RankMath 1.0.1 Tagdiv Newspaper 9.1 AMP for WordPress - WORKS, but is very basic TagDiv AMP - this works and has more functionality (and it made to work with the theme) Better AMP - WordPress Complete AMP - This works and has more functionality These 5 don't work in my system: AMP for WP - Crashed the admin - gives a blank page immediately after activation WP AMP Ninja - doesn't crash the admin, but doesn't deliver an AMP page AMP on WordPress – weeblrAMP CE - Crashed the admin - gives a blank page immediately after activation AMP for WooCommerce - didn't try this WP AMP - Crashed the admin - gives a blank page immediately after activation This one wasn't in your list - and it doesn't work for me either. AMP WP by Pixelative - redeclares a function and will not load.
  9. Rankmath v 1.0.1 TagDiv Newspaper Theme v 9.1 This is my main live site, please be careful. The main sitemap page works OK And these are OK: category-sitemap.xml author-sitemap.xml page-sitemap.xml But all of the post page sitemaps are blank, except they return a code of "1" post-sitemap1.xml ... post-sitemap19.xml Here is the weird thing post-sitemap28.xml to post-sitemap28.xml work OK (there are 27,800 posts) - for the ones that do work, the image count shows 0 Also note that several of the AMP plugins also return a blank page in the admin area - I will open another ticket for that
  10. Thank you Monty. I will work on changing to the new theme this week. Alan
  11. Hello Monty. I still see the same problem. I added a new story and all the same problems are there for me. I have the other sitemap plugin, because it has a news sitemap and RankMath doesn't have that yet. The main sitemap is turned off in that other plugin, so I am using Rankmath sitemap and only the news sitemap in the other plugin. I will work on the theme update, in case it is that. Note that RankMath v15 works and v17 doesn't. What happened when you added v.17 - did it work for you? Did you see the missing bars? were the green settings correct? ALSO, I forgot to tell you one more problem - the "Visual - Text" tabs in the editor no longer work with this release.
  12. Hello, I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further? Thank you.
  13. v 0.9.17 breaks several things I tried Troubleshooting, but RankMath will not activate under troubleshooting. I tried deactivating almost all other plugins, but that did not fix the problem. Rolling back to v 0.9.15 did fix the problem. The attached image shows many of the visible effects of the issues.
  14. 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: I love RankMath!
  15. 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
