Thoughts on “How to Use the Yoast SEO Bulk Editor

  • I tried to use the Yoast bulk editor but it crashed my site just when clicking on the tag!

    It happenned 2 times: The first time I needed to reinitialise my VM, the second I took a snapshot of the VM. I did not try a third time…

    Would be great if someone has an idea why this happened. Thansk

    • Thanks for your comment. It would be good to have some more information about your VM stack, software versions, etc. There are potentially thousands of reasons why these crashes might be occurring. You may also want to check with the plugin developers or their WordPress support forum to see if other users have had similar issues.
