    Would be great to have WordPress SEO handling Buddypress too.

    There's notihng around at the moment to do this, except one plugin from Themekraft outdated.

    Hi, I also would like to know if there is a specific trick to make the plugin runs with buddypress.

    Thank you for your help !

    It will run normally and will take care of the whole site as it usually does except for the buddypress section. This means Buddypres is not included in sitemaps, titles and tags, meta descriptions and so on.

    Hi, not exactly, the plugin create duplicate meta's with sevarals pages on buddypress. It causes many seo problems...

    following pages have the same meta's title when I active the plugin...

    mywebsite.com/groups/voyage-asie/
    mywebsite.com/groups/voyage-asie/forum/

    You're right, I've experienced that. That issue happens with several themes too, however I thought the last plugin version fixed this.

    If you have the last version of the plugin installed and it keeps messing your meta titles you must deactivate the plugin.

    The best solution was Joost integrate his SEO plugin with Buddypress, the reason why I opened this thread.

    The other option is to use SeoPress plugin from Themekraft. This one was nade having in account Buddypress, however right now has a bug, if you are using group forums it will mess your forum listings, at the rest seems to work fine.

    Does anyone know if WordPress SEO might be updated to address the need for support for Buddypress any time soon?

    I am also still trying to get Yoast to work with BuddyPress pages. It seems that all of the BuddyPress pages have the same Titles instead of dynamically setting them based on the page they are on, IE: Profile page with members name in the title.

    Same.
    With more than 1.5 million downloads and strong support by Auttomatic and leading WP devs, I'd love to think Yoast would support Buddypress into this plugin too :(

    You need add this to your theme function.php:

    function wpseo_canonical_exclude( $canonical )
    {
    		global $bp;
    		if ( $bp->current_component)
                    {
       		$canonical = false;
                     }
    	return $canonical;
    }
    add_filter( 'wpseo_canonical', 'wpseo_canonical_exclude' );

    Maybe it's not really nice solution, but it works! members, groups and forums will not share a canonical slug anymore.
    I'm using this at my website http://sevelina.ru/

    To change BuddyPress titles you need to change it at your pages. My SEO titles for members profile is %%name%% - %%sitename%%

    You should go to your pages: site.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=page
    then to the "Members" - edit this page.
    At the bottom you will see "Woedpress SEO by Yoast" You need to fill SEO Title: %%name%% - %%sitename%%

    It works only for the members.
