Why does my podcast or RSS feed stop working when Yoast SEO Video is enabled?

As of Yoast SEO 20.0, the settings interface inside our plugins has received a major overhaul. Please update to the latest version of Yoast SEO if your plugin does not look like the screenshots you encounter in our Help center.

This is an issue we’ve built a manual fix for, just for the people with this problem. We’ve implemented a setting you can simply turn off, and it’ll make sure your RSS and podcast will keep working.

    When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’.

  2. Click on ‘Yoast SEO’.
