Known WordPress Plugin Conflicts

Occasionally CoSchedule runs into conflicts with other plugins on your WordPress site. The solution to these conflicts is often to disable the identified plugin.

      • Bit.ly Official WordPress Plugin

        The Bit.ly Official WordPress Plugin will cause a conflict when using Google UTM tags. Since the link is already shortened when it enters the CoSchedule system, the UTM tags that are added will not do anything. Use CoSchedule’s Bitly Integration instead.

        Yoast Duplicate Post

        The Yoast Duplicate Post plugin disrupts workflows within CoSchedule. The plugin will copy and paste your old WordPress info into a new post which will give CoSchedule a new ID. This will delete any work you have done within that project, including tasks, color label changes, and new social messages. We recommend using the duplicate feature built into CoSchedule.
