Please Note: GitHub is for bug reports and code contributions only – if you have a support question or a request for a customisation don’t post here, go to our Support Forum instead.
For localization, please refer to translate.yoast.com, though bugs with strings that can’t be translated are welcome here.
How to write a useful bug report
If you think you have found a bug (we acknowledge that that’s a possibility), please make sure you’re using the latest version of the plugin. If possible check out the latest version from GitHub and see if the bug still exists there.
A useful bug report explains:
What you were trying to achieve.
What you were expecting to happen.
What actually happened, illustrated with screenshots if possible.
Your bug report should also contain your WordPress version and if there are any errors, the exact error text, including line numbers.
Blank / white screen
If you’re getting a blank screen and you report just that, we can do absolutely nothing. By default, your WordPress install suppresses all errors, to prevent information leaks, but we need those errors to be able to help you. If you apply the small piece of code in this post on WP_DEBUG to your site, you should be able to open the URL that gave you a white screen, append ?debug=debug to the URL and get the actual error.
That error will help us, without that error, we’re completely in the dark about your white page problem…
Please do not report security issues here, but email them to security at yoast dot com so we can deal with them securely and quickly.
