    Hello @zilx,

    Thanks for reaching out and we’re sorry that you are experiencing problems that might be caused by our plugin!

    Just to be sure, we would like to rule out any plugin or theme conflicts that may occur. The fastest way to do this is to deactivate all non-Yoast plugins and switch to a standard theme like Twenty Nineteen

    Test this on your development or staging site, if you have one. If not, we recommend using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin. This plugin allows you to run a conflict check without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    As we can imagine that you’re unfamiliar with checking for conflicts, we’d like to point you to a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process: How to check for plugin conflicts.

    I’d like to reopen this ticket as I have started having the exact same problem.

    I only have a handful of essential plugins besides Elementor (CPTUI, ACF and YOAST SEO). Everything was fine then eout of nowhere (no recent updates) Elementor stopped working with YOAST. I disabled all plugins, switched to WP 2020 theme and reactivate one-by-one and all work fine – until you active YOAST and you can no longer edit a page, as it brings up a critical error. This is not just with Elementor, but via WP editor also.

    I reinstalled YOAST, which did nothing.

    My memory is 256mb, PHP version is 7.2, so I don’t think there are any system requirement issues.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Lee



    yep Yoast SEO is making elementor crash, to me is when I close the elementor, had to deactivate Yoast SEO to elementor work properly.



    I’m having the same issue, it occured when I re downloaded YOAST. I turned it off and sure enough Elementor started working again??
