on my page below I can on any page insert a slug string into the related Yoast field, but it disappears after “save/actualize” the page. Maybe I have to set something different in settings/permalinks? currently “post name” is activated.

I’m not sure I understand what you are referring to? The link you posted leads me to a login screen for a service which I’m not familiar with.

Thanks for the update. I’m guessing this problem happens on the backend, correct? If so then please include admin WordPress login details in private, and describe exactly how we can reproduce the problem you are having.

yes, backend. Take the example page mentioned (it happens at any page, too), If I go the site backend and enter a slug, save the page, the “slug” string is not visible any longer . this happens not with other meta info as “SEO title” and “meta descr.”, they are fine

Thanks for the update. I’m not sure how we can login with only an email though, could you post the password in private as well please?

Thanks for that. I’m not sure exactly how that should work, but if you add new slug then then permalink for the page changes, and that works as it should as far as I can see. The only problem is that it’s not visible in the slug field, but it is visible in the permalink under the title. If you need further clarification on this then I would suggest that you reach out to Yoast support.

ah ok. I thought this would be a diffferent addt´l field.
If I understand you correct: The “slug” field does the same vs. editing the permalink xxx on top of the page editor (below the page title “permalink: https:/…/xxx) – right?
thx & best regards TilmanNovember 24, 2020 at 6:02 am #1262577
Yes, it seems like it. You can try to change the slug, then check if your permalink changes. It did when I tried it at least. We’re not really experts when it comes to the Yoast SEO plugin, so if you need further clarification on what the functionality in the plugin does, then please refer to the plugin documentation or reach out to their support.
