Yoast SEO Plugin Update Breaks Update Button

If you’re like us you use the Yoast SEO plugin on all of your sites. In the Yoast SEO 7.0.1 update our clients realized the update button was gone from all categories.

You may have even seen an error like:

Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: Argument 1 passed to WPSEO_Metabox_Tab_Section::add_tab() must implement interface WPSEO_Metabox_Tab, boolean given

The fix until they release a patch is quite simple.

Just do the following:

In the Yoast SEO settings go under “Social” and either Facebook or Twitter is disabled. If you enable both of those then the update button will show back up.

How to Change the Default WordPress Login URL

The problem we’re trying to solve is that we don’t want our client to have to remember that the URL to edit their site is /wp-admin or /wp-login.

We want our client to be able to go to a simple URL such as /login. How do we do that?

First, we need to open .htaccess. If you’re not comfortable working within .htaccess we would not suggest going forward. If you are comfortable and know where to find it then it’s as simple as one line of code.
