    So I have 2 problems on my Wordpress site.

    One is that I can't switch the post editor to Visual view (so I have to write/edit posts using full HTML. It's a drag). Also, the post editor isn't showing any of the options (bold, italics, underline, etc etc). There's nothing there.

    Then we scroll down a bit, and Yoast's SEO plugin is not showing the Meta Description and Title fields. Here's how it looks:

    Note: I tried disabling all plugins other than Yoast, and the problem with it (Meta Description and Title) persists.

    Note: I tried disabling all plugins and Yoast, and the problem with Post Editor not switching to Visual and the options (bold, italics, underline, etc) gets resolved and it works.

    Note: After enabling plugins one by one and checking, it's the Yoast and Akismet plugins that fuck up the post editor (individually they fuck it up, and combined too)

    Wordpress sucks ass sometimes. I feel like getting everything under working conditions, and then throwing a total STOP on ALL future updates. Throw my middle finger in the air and wiggle it around you know. :p

    Well, I solved the Akismet problem. I removed Akismet, and installed this other Spam prevention plugin called "Anti-Spam."

    It's a popular plugin, and all good reviews, seems fine.

    Now the post editor works great. Fuck you Akismet, good riddance.


    That leaves the dreaded Yoast.

    Problem 1) Breaks Post Editor
    Problem 2) The Meta Description and Meta Title bits are not visible (as shown in the photo in my original post)

    Can anyone help?

    Ughhh...

    The Anti spam plugin I installed, called "Anti-spam," is incompatible with Jetpack comments (which is what I use on my blog). I just saw it reading about the plugin.

    So I removed that, and installed a plugin called "WP-SpamShield Anti-Spam - All-in-One Spam Protection"

    It's compatible with Jetpack Comments, and it has a lot of installs and good reviews. It also doesn't break my post editor. Good, done and done.

    Now, Yoast...
