Yoast WordPress Set Permalinks Before Going Live

We finished a new WordPress site that has Yoast installed, and when we went to set the permalinks on the live site we couldn’t. We got a warning that changing the permalinks would have a serious impact. A serious good impact on SEO is what were look to get with the change. We should have made the changed before we transferred the site.

We looked around for a quick solution to put the site in maintenance mode, so we tried a couple of plugin. The site is hosted on SiteGround and they have great caching features which make the site fast, but can sometimes be frustrating when you are in development mode. The plugins were tried were not working quickly.

We did install the plugin “Maintenance”, so the next day we tried it again. This time we realized the works “Maintenance mode on” at the top in the DIVI toolbar. We tried to change the permalinks and this time it worked. So grateful to the get the page titles working.

We found a lot of ways to solve this on the following page.
