    Hi m@xx,

    I took a quick look at the plugin All in One SEO Pack.
    It has a built in data migration function which looks for descriptions set to any Post Type (including Simple Links).

    It does a blind search for any descriptions and if found it will display a big "Update Database" button.

    When pressed, this button does a blind replace of any descriptions in the database using the following query.
    $wpdb->query( "UPDATE $wpdb->postmeta SET meta_key = '_aioseop_description' WHERE meta_key = 'description'" );

    Unfortunately, there is not much I can do about it. My plugin is highly extendable. If I change the link descriptions to something else it could potentially break many peoples custom sites/plugins.

    Perhaps you could get the author of All in One SEO to only run the script if someone is updating from and old version of the plugin instead of a blind search and replace.

    Good Luck.

    Hi Mat,

    Thanks for explanations. I understand you can't change link description field in something else. In the future, i'll avoid to click this button :-))
