Rank math plugin inactivating users affects Elementor Author box

  • Here is the reply from Elementor support regarding my quuery about the Author Box in the post widget not linking to the author’s web page address:

    ‘So upon checking your site I was able to find the issue it is related to the Rankmath plugin, which inactivates the users therefore when you try to access their pages it just reloads to the Home Page.

    Please see the video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ofyz3vudfa9sy1l/dTY6kEqdRh.mp4?dl=0

    Since this is a third-party issue you can contact their support and ask them how to disable this feature.’

    Can you provide a fix, otherwise I won’t be able to us your plugin 🙁

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I think we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:


    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):


    We really look forward to helping you.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.


    It was happening because in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math plugin > Titles & Meta > Authors, you have disabled the Author Archives so those URLs (author) were being redirected to the homepage.

    I just enabled them and everything seems to work fine, could you check it?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Oh, right! Sorry about that. Thanks for your help Alberto.

    Now resolved.
