WordPress SEO (Yoast)

Skin Editor Issues

If you find that attempting to launch the Skin Editor redirects you to the front page of your site instead, you may have the “Redirect ugly URL’s to clean permalinks” option enabled in WordPress SEO’s Permalinks settings.

If so, and you absolutely need that setting enabled for some reason (despite it’s being something the plugin recommends that you NOT use in most cases), find the “Other variables not to clean” field in the Clean Permalink Settings section of the plugin’s Permalinks panel, and input the following into that field:

thesis_editor, thesis_canvas

then save your settings. Doing this should allow the Skin Editor (and the Canvas, which is also affected by this issue in a less obvious fashion) to function correctly again instead of redirecting to the home page.

If you’re still experiencing conflicts which you suspect are related to this plugin, please post in the Plugin Compatibility & Integration section of the Forums for further advice.
