Understanding Addon Mode or Standalone Mode in AMPforWP

We now will be able to use the AMPforWP with the AMP by Automattic as well. Our aim is to provide important features to a wider audience and most importantly, providing a solution. It does not make sense for us to make a solution and limit them only to AMPforWP users.

We want to help each and every single user who can make use of our solutions, so that’s why we have opened our gates to AMP by Automattic as well. So, if the AMP by Automattic is installed, AMPforWP will act as an addon of it

We have two Modes in our AMPforWP plugin

  1. Addon Mode
  2. Standalone Mode

    3. Hello
      I installed the plugin and it is activated in Addon mode.
      I have an error message about its compatibility with Yoast SEO:
      The configuration of AMPforWP and Yoast SEO plugin is seems incorrect. Please go to AMPforWP plugin settings -> SEO -> SEO Plugin Integration and select Yoast SEO plugin from the drop down.
      But I can’t change this setting (AMPforWP plugin settings -> SEO -> SEO Plugin Integration) while in Addon mode.
      And I can’t find how to switch to Standalone mode?
      what should I do?
      Thanks for your help.
