Unable to decode value and not save changes for rank-math-options-titles

    I have imported data from old version of Yoast with ASCII icons in titles/descriptions formart (▷→☘ and vars %…%). When i change values for “rank-math-options-titles” page loads with “Settings updated” but doesn’t save the changes. POST request shows “Unable to decode value” for titles and descriptions.

    WordPress v5.4.1

  • Hello,

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

    I don’t get any error on my setup when I try to save settings with ASCII icons. Please check this screencast from my setup: https://i.rankmath.com/tvNY4c

    Assuming you are using the latest version of all the plugins and the themes (please update if not yet), it would seem like a conflict with one of the plugins or the theme you are using.

    To determine that, please follow this troubleshooting guide:

    Please let us know if you find the culprit.

    Only the site admin would know and your users won’t be affected by this troubleshooting.

    Looking forward to helping you.


    Finally I have debug it. T he problem is other icon used in titles ;

    For example this emoji https://www.w3schools.com/charsets/tryit.asp?deci=129351, if I use de DEC code 🥇 works OK for save changes and it showes the icon 🥇. If I copy/paste the icon 🥇 (without DEC/HEX code) for titles so don´t save new changes.

    Best regards


    I see, I will send this thread to the devs so they can check it and maybe improve it in a future plugin update. Do you want I set this thread as solved meanwhile? We will be here to help you with any other questions or issue you might have in the future.

    Looking forward to help you.
