I am using Yoast SEO plugin on a site and all is working correctly apart from a duplicate meta tag problem. If I look at my rendered page source I can see...
<meta name="description" content="Learn how to paint with watercolours and charcoal"/>
<meta property='og:description' content='Learn how to paint with watercolours and charcoal'/>
I am assuming this is where the duplicate issue is ocurring, I understand that one of these is used by Facebook etc.. to pull in post data, so I also assume that I can do away with the first tag and just use the og:description one?
If this is correct how would I go about removing it? I have checked my theme and all plugins and it appears as if the Yoast plugin is generating both.
Can anyone help?
