Description

Via ZD:

My name is Tomonori Nagano and I am using CUNY Academic Commons for a few grant-funded projects. I am writing because it seems that one of the plugins (Yoast SEO) has some issue on Academic Commons now.

When I tried to activate Yeast SEO, this error shows up (see the screen shot). The developer's page says that this error often happens when the plug-in update was interrupted and re-updating the plugin will fix the issue.

When you have a chance, could you look into the problem and re-install the plug-in if necessary?

Here are the links to my WordPress sites on CAC.

Thank you for your consideration.

This problem is due to some customizations put in place around primary database table keys. See #12598. The wordpress-seo plugin used to install a "meta" table without a primary key, and we intercepted this table creation at the time of activation to modify it as needed for our setup. But it appears that the new version of wordpress-seo doesn't include this table anymore. So the modification can be removed.

I've deployed this as a hotfix, since it was preventing users from being able to activate wordpress-seo.

I've now gotten confirmation that it's working. Thanks!
