[SmartCrawl Pro] smart crawl

two things -
1. breadcrumbs. Will there be plugin conflict if I use Yoast for breadcrumbs because you don't have them?
2. The smartcrawl notified me of 31 errors but no way of indicating what they are or how to fix them . . . not much good in short.

    Thank you for answering part 2 of my query. Before it showed 31 issues and not all of them were 401's actually there were only 8 and I adressed them. So it makes me worry that more and more are appearing using your plug in. In fact I don't like the way you take up so much of my time by me having to log in, go to the forum and reply. A return address email is much easier.
    Coming back to my other point. Do I assume from this that there is no conflict if I activate Yoast SEO so I can use their breadcrumbs facility because it is something that you guys do not currently offer?
    In addition, I raised another ticket to say that your snapshot plugin freezes 75% through and does not get beyond september of 2017 media files.

    May I also add that you did not address my query with regard to robot text:
    'Good news! We located the robots.txt file and search engine crawlers have access to do their job. However, we haven't been able to find any sitemap information in it.'
    Nor did you assist me in my query with regard to Schema - some title are missing and being flagged by google console. I think I asked if Schema was included in the plug in? BTW do I need to keep the Glue for Yoast plug in activated? I know the configuration of Yoast was used in setting up smart crawl. Thank you

    Hi Tracy,

    SmartCrawl shows issues that are existing at the time of Scan and hence the number of errors can vary. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused due to various hops that you have to take in order to send a response to the thread. I will speak to the team about your suggestion of hitting a reply button in the email to be able to reply to the thread.

    I tested the Yoast breadcrumbs by adding it's shortcode to TwentyFifteen theme and was using SmartCrawl for other tasks. It did not conflict on my test site. You too can give it a try.

    Adam has requested for some details to help you solve the Snapshots backup error on the following link (https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/snapshot-pro-snap-shot-backups-not-working#post-1352336)

    You can fix the robots.txt error by adding the below line on the first line of robots.txt
    Sitemap: https://www.tmtspain.com/sitemap.xml

    You can setup schema in SmartCrawl by going to SmartCrawl -> Social -> Accounts. The schema errors can be tested by using Google's Structured Data Testing Tool (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/u/0/) and you can fix the issues based on the output in the tool.

    Glue for Yoast is useful ONLY if yoast SEO plugin is active and is being used.

    I think you have no idea how to communicate with me. The thing is, if I had a technical brain I probably wouldn't need your help - and believe me I need your help! LOL
    I had already accessed SmartCrawl -> Social -> Accounts on my website and activated it way before contacting you guys, but it doesn't help me to understand if it is compatible with Schema.org plugin or not. Nor does it help me to solve the issue about the empty titles on the schema markup that is being flagged by the Google Console. (Henty?) As you've probably gathered by now, talking to me about shortcodes is like talking to a martian about snapchat. So, what is the shortcode and how do I add it to my Oikia theme? Thank you.
    Also, how do I access the robots text in the first place so I can add the first line?
    In additiion, following up on your comment about the Yoast SEO plugin I had already asked about having Yoast SEO activated for its breadcrumbs facility, once activated would I then need the Yoast GLUE or not?
    Sorry, but we really do live in parallel universes when it comes to how our brains work.

    Hi Tracy,

    I am sorry if I added to confusion with my answer above. Let me go in detail and try to help you with your query.

    Please enable the Staff Support Access to your site so that we can log in to your site and help you with the Schema.org issue. To enable Staff Support Access, you can go to WPMU DEV -> Support and click on Big Grey Button with "Grant Support Access" written on it.

    Adding Shortcode

    What is a shortcode?
    A shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. Shortcode = shortcut.

    As shown in the attached screenshot you will have to add [wpseo_breadcrumb] in the pages where you want to show the breadcrumbs.

    Editing robots.txt

    To edit the robots.txt you will have to login to the CPanel of your website (URL : http://www.tmtspain.com/cpanel) and then click on File Manager -> Select Document Root for tmtspain.com. This will list the files on the server. Search for robots.txt and right click on it and select Edit. This will open the file in a new tab. Add the following line to the top of robots.txt Sitemap: https://www.tmtspain.com/sitemap.xml and click save.

    Once done, you can go to https://www.tmtspain.com/robots.txt to see the changes.

    Yoast Glue

    Yoast Glue enables the Yoast SEO features for AMP enabled pages. I would suggest to keep it installed and active.

    If you have trouble/confusion in implementing any of the above suggestions, please reach out to me using our Contact form.
