Turns Out I Don’t Need Yoast SEO after all… (noob oversight lolz)

So I just found out that one can show the Excerpt and Slug fields in Classic Editor by configuring Screen Options.

This whole time I’ve been installing Yoast SEO (free version) literally just to get those two fields in my editor lol.

Also WordPress core seems to generate a sitemap.xml already. So for my simple use case, where I’m not really concerned with SEO keywords when writing an article, is it safe to uninstall Yoast?
