Comment on Stallion WordPress SEO Plugin by SEO Gold Coast Services.

Still got no other reports of this problem and no clue why settings wouldn’t save.

If the default settings are saving you could try editing the defaults so future installs (on other sites) use your preferred settings. Based on viewing source of your login page it’s saving the default settings at least.

In the file stallion-wordpress-seo-plugin.php these are the defaults.

add_option(st_seo_notindex_login, '2');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_admin, '2');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_date, '1');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_author, '1');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_search, '0');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_tags, '0');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_category, '0');
add_option(st_seo_notindex_home, '1');

Below are the numbers you can use for those 8 settings.

WordPress Login Pages st_seo_notindex_login
1= Index Login Pages
2= Block Login Pages**

WordPress Admin Pages st_seo_notindex_admin
1= Index Admin Pages
2= Block Admin Pages**

Date Archives st_seo_notindex_date
1= Index Date Archives
2= Block All Date Archives**

Author Archives st_seo_notindex_author
1= Index Author Archives
2= Block All Author Archives**

Search Results st_seo_notindex_search
0= Index All Search Results
1= Block All Search Results
2= Index First Search Result Only : Block Paged 2,3,4…**

Category Archives st_seo_notindex_category
0= Index All Categories^^
1= Block All Categories
2= Index First Category Only : Block Paged 2,3,4…

Tag Archives st_seo_notindex_tags
0= Index All Tags
1= Block All Tags
2= Index First Tag Only : Block Paged 2,3,4…^^

Home Page Archives st_seo_notindex_home
1= Index Home Paged Archives
2= Index Home Page Only : Block Paged 2,3,4…^^

For example, if you wanted “Index First Search Result Only” you’d change

add_option(st_seo_notindex_search, '0');

to

add_option(st_seo_notindex_search, '2');

Try making that change to the file and see what happens. For a blog with the plugin already activated it should have no impact since the database settings have already been saved. If it has no impact it would confirm the database entries are being saved normally when the plugin is activated for the first time (that would be normal).

If the setting changes it would suggest the settings keep re-saving the default values.

I need to add a delete settings options for those removing the plugin completely.

To manually set the settings without going into your database go to: http://example.com/wp-admin/options.php
And manually set these:

st_seo_notindex_admin
st_seo_notindex_author
st_seo_notindex_category
st_seo_notindex_date
st_seo_notindex_home
st_seo_notindex_login
st_seo_notindex_pages
st_seo_notindex_posts
st_seo_notindex_search
st_seo_notindex_tags

For a safe test change st_seo_notindex_search first to 2 and check the Stallion SEO Plugin options page to see if it sticks.
