Meta robots not updating (2 posts)

    I'm having a trouble getting my meta data to update. I've tried several different plugins including Robots Meta, All in One SEO Pack and SEO by Yoast to give me the ability to set a couple of our website's pages to noindex. However, none of them work which leads me to suspect that the theme is blocking it somehow. The Theme is SimplePress by Elegant Themes and the website is http://www.smarthunts.com

    Does anyone know of a fix for this?

    Thanks!

    you may need to add the hooks needed by those plugins manually to your header.php(theme file) or it could be possible that your themes functions are overriding the meta tags that those plugins would be trying to add.

    Also you could accomplish the same thing with a robots.txt file. You currently have a robots.txt file on your site that looks like this:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    you can add more rules into this file, for example:

    to block indexing on:
    http://www.smarthunts.com/charitable/locate-donate

    add the following line to your robots.txt file:
    Disallow: /charitable/locate-donate
