[resolved] Date in meta? (9 posts)

    WordPress 3.4.1
    Plugin 1.2.5 (JUST reverted to recent dev version)

    Everything is working ok with the dev version (page sitemap errors with 1.2.5), but my meta description is displaying a date. The date is NOT on the homepage or in the description. I have no idea how it is being generated. Any thoughts on troubleshooting it?

    It's showing a date in the preview or in google?

    Then I can't help you, it's taking the date from either your post or page or from your RSS feed, or somewhere else.

    The date is being grabbed regardless of what the description says. This is happening for multiple pages and is a new problem. How would I trace this down? Screenshots attached. Date is greyed out so that I am not able to change it or delete it.

    That's not Google, that's in the snippet preview and that's the result of me enabling that by default. If you don't have the date in your snippets in Google, you could add the following to your theme's functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'wpseo_show_date_in_snippet_preview', '__return_false' );

    I apologize, I did a lousy job linking to my example in my previous post as well as describing the problem. (doubled up on one example) The problem is that Google is displaying the date on my home page. No problem with the rest of the site...

    It's getting that from your second to last post, because it hasn't spidered your last post yet, as your homepage's cache date is june 26th:

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?strip=1&q=cache:http://www.hatfieldmedia.com/

    So in the same way that I can't make gravatar and wordpress update (6 months now, still stupid fruit avatar), I can't make Google re-cache my site right?
