Our site just went live this week, so I began delving into SEO in hopes of attracting more visitors and recognition. Naturally, I looked to WP SEO by Yoast to get me started.
While installing other plugins, I navigated to the homepage and found that our slider, created with WOW Slider, was no longer there. It is a crucial element in our homepage, and I *needed* it there.
What I Did:
- Began de-activating plugins, and found that WP SEO was the culprit.
- Rigorously navigated the WP SEO options/settings and found nothing which would fix the issue.
- Went to Google and the WordPress support forum to find someone else with the same issue, got nothing.
As a last attempt, I searched just "wordpress seo wowslider". Of all the search queries i tried, this one worked. I found this:
If anyone's using both the Yoast SEO and Wowslider Plug-ins then, just so you know, the Wowslider shortcode will not display/work/be initialized unless you've filled in Yoast's SEO Page/Post Description - and Title. (And here's me thinking it was JetPax fault!) ...
So there it is, for anyone else having the same problem. Just add a title and a meta description, update your page, and the problem should be resolved.
