When you’re ready to publish your post and going to set up your Yoast SEO meta box for your post’s SEO. After scrolling, you see your Your Yoast SEO meta box is blank and look like the above blank image.
I have also faced this error recently so I think I should create a post on it.
What’s the cause of Yoast SEO meta box is blank Error
- Your Avast Antivirus is Blocking Yoast SEO
- Outdated WordPress Themes and Plugins
Solve Yoast SEO meta box is blank
Solution 1: Outdated Plugins
This problem first came to my mind when I get this error and most people face this error because they install outdated plugins. Most of the people faced this because they installed a plugin that is not tested with the current version of WordPress. So make sure you installed the updated WordPress Plugins or themes.
Solution 4: Avast Antivirus is Blocking your Yoast SEO
The ‘ Avast Antivirus ‘ software has a function called ‘Script scanning.’ It is supposed to block malicious scripts, but important Yoast SEO files are also reported to be blocked.
You can add your own URL to the ‘Script exclusions‘ to prevent this feature from blocking Yoast SEO.
