Worked like a charm!

By cXD4931 (xbor17) on August 24, 2023

One week trying to find how to solve 404's around content translated with WPML that Yoast was messing around with till I found that. Installed this plugin, made a reset on Yoast tables and plugins, made a new onboarding and a new optimization of the plugin (same process like when you install it for the first time) and everything solved in 15 minutes. And without losing any canonicals, titles, or descriptions. Thanks for this little plugin team Yoast!

This plugin helped fix the 'wp_yoast_indexable' already exists issue

By bramchi on June 9, 2020

This plugin helped me deal with the 'wp_yoast_indexable' already exists error that I got after cloning a website for a migration. One click of the 'Reset Indexables tables & migrations' button fixed it. Not sure if that shouldn't just be fixed in the core Yoast SEO plugin, but this plugin did help with that so 5 stars baby!

Fixed my canonical using old site address

By webcoast on June 6, 2020

I developed a site on a temporary URL (eg using IP address) because the client had an existing website. When I swapped across and made the new site live I used Velvet Blue plugin to update all the references to the old temporary domain. But the canonical URL didn't swap across to the domain name, it stayed as the old temporary URL. I installed Yoast Test Helper and clicked on 'Reset Indexables' and it worked! Canonicals updated, including pages that use WooCommerce. Thanks for the plugin!

Great for fixing upgrade errors to yoast version 14+

By cashbee on May 27, 2020

I only needed the Reset indexables & migrations Button, it immediately fixed my erronous upgrade from Yoast 13.X to 14.2 (wp_yoast_indexable already exists). No data was lost, and I had to make only 1 click. Nice
