    Automatic Dublin Core Metadata does not stay on it seems to disappear sometimes. Also having problems with descriptions being random and not matching the posts it should be on?

    If you use a caching mechanism, you should either wait for the cache to refresh the cached content or manually invalidate the cached content. Also, try cleaning the web browser cache. I cannot think of a reason why Dublin Core metatags would dissapear. It must be the cache.

    Also, please be more specific about the random descriptions. The description for posts is generated using the following procedure:

    1. If an excerpt has been set by the user, then this is used as the description.
    2. If no excerpt is found, then the description of the 'Metadata' metabox is used.
    3. Finally, if the Metabox description has not been set, then the plugin uses the first ~200-250 characters of the first paragraph of the post.

    I highly recommend clearing the 'page cache' in W3TC when changing the settings of any plugin or activate/deactivate new plugins.

    Also, have you checked the post descriptions again. I really need some feedback about the randomness you mentioned earlier.

    Let me write a bit I did here.

    Global Keywords
    In this section I only added %contentkw% into it.
    I am using SEOquake Diagnosis. and when I check the diagnosis of SEOquake or even the source code of the posts. They are different. Example would be Title post being = Chynna Phillips Net Worth - American singer and actress
    Meta Description = Jackie Slaughter Guitar and Vocals, Jonny Nesta Guitar, Mystery Drums, Casey Slade Bass from Skull Fist a Heavy Metal band from Toronto, Ontario. ...

    Meta Keywords = %contentkw%, interviews, canadian heavy metal, skull fist

    So obviously its from another post. very hard to explain but I will do my best.

    In the Automatic Basic Metadata TABS i clicked on both.

    Cleared the page cache as well as all caches. It worked for one post and the other one it did not work.

    It seems it is taking Meta Description and Meta Keywords from random posts still.

    It is unnecessary to enter %contentkw% alone in Global Keywords. The keywords of the content will be added to the keywords metatag without it.

    Nevertheless %contentkw% should never appear in the keywords metatag. There is a small bug there. I'll fix it. Nice catch!

    About the description not matching the title and the post, I have no idea. I'm testing the plugin as I write this message and I cannot reproduce this behavior.

    Are there any custom fields that might contain a description for the post?

    There is some post that I use with Yoast SEO that have no description added. Could that be the cause. Because your post finds the beginning of the posts texts?

    Fixed the bug with the %contentkw% in 2.3.3.

    My plugin uses the post that is currently loaded by WordPress. It does not load any other post. I suspect custom fields. Could you please check if the post contains any custom fields that contain the wrong description?

    Custom fields may not be visible. Enable them from the 'screen options' in the up-right corner.

    If you do not add any other global keywords, %contentkw% alone is not needed.

    When will the update be posted :) Great plugin I should say. Just hope I can get my description problems figured out soon.

    I am currently testing it for release. The new version adds support for Twitter Cards and Schema.org metadata.

    There is no custom fields. I use Yoast SEO for everything. It seems the problems are in the beginning of the source code with some posts. they give out random post descriptions and keywords. still not too sure.

    If I use tags for the posts I have. They will be transformed correctly as keywords correct?

    This box:

    Setting -> Metadata -> Global Keywords

    Just don't put anything in there. This should contain keywords that would be appended to the keywords of each post.

    The post in the first link had two identical description meta tags. Both with the wrong content...

    Mate, I have no idea why this might be happening. :)

    Did this start when you first used Add-Meta-Tags?

    Also, if you deactivate Add-Meta-Tags, are your descriptions correct?

    That would be since I started using the plugin. Could there be a plugin conflict?

    Hard to say. My wild guess is that there should be no conflict. Then again I am only sure about what my plugin does. I don't know about the other one. :)
