    Hi,

    I am currently making the switch from ACF to Carbon Fields and I noticed that the Yoast SEO plugin does not work with CF. I have searched high and low for articles or issues from the community and have come up short. Is there a way to get Yoast SEO to work with CF? Yoast provides the following link for plugin developers that are interested in integrating:

    https://github.com/Yoast/YoastSEO.js/blob/master/README.md

    This is crucial to the process of us fully switching to CF as our primary choice over ACF. If this is not currently supported (or I’m just missing something) is this on the roadmap for a future release? Thanks!

    Hi @tinothepro,

    Can you expand on what kind of integration between the two you are looking for?

    Hi Atanas,

    Essentially when I worked with ACF it had an extension plugin that allowed Yoast SEO to recognize the content in the custom fields. This would allow it to properly judge the content in these fields base on SEO criteria in situations where most of the content was NOT in the WordPress editor. In my trials with CF I have noticed that Yoast does not recognize any content that is in these custom fields. This makes it harder for clients to judge the quality of the content they write and better implement good SEO practices. Is there a way to get Yoast to see the content inside my various CF custom fields? I hope this clarifies a bit better. Thanks!

    You can post a feature request over at GitHub (https://github.com/htmlburger/carbon-fields/issues) and we will discuss internally if we will be adding this soon.

    In the meantime, you can try and adapt an ACF+Yoast plugin to work with CF (it looks like it’s a matter of switching some calls from get_fields() to carbon_get_post_meta() etc.). If you go that route, you may even post a PR on GitHub or post it as a separate plugin for CF.
