    @shopstonedqueen We’re sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue on your site.

    We checked on your site in both the source code of the home page and in a Google search, but weren’t seeing this issue of a shortcode being output in the meta description. Is this issue only occurring on specific pages? If so, can you please provide us with an example URL so that we can check into this further?

    Also, can you please confirm you are using the most recent version of Yoast SEO, version 15.6.2? You can learn more about updating here:

    In addition, can you confirm you are using WordPress 5.6? You can check by clicking on the W in the top left and selecting About. If you need to update, please check with your host provider. Please know that if you are using an older version of WordPress Core you may experience unexpected behavior with Yoast. This guide explains more:

    If you update to the most current version of WordPress and Yoast SEO, does this resolve the issue?

    If after ensuring that both WordPress, Yoast SEO, and your other plugins and themes are up to date the issue is still occurring, we’d next recommend performing a conflicting check to see whether another plugin or theme is interfering with the Yoast SEO Plugin. This will help us narrow down the exact cause and determine what the next steps are while saving you time.

    The fastest way to do this is to deactivate all non-Yoast plugins and switch to a standard theme like Twenty Nineteen. Test this on your development or staging site, if you have one. If not, we recommend using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin. This plugin allows you to run a conflict check without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    If you’re unfamiliar with checking for conflicts, we’d like to point you to a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process: How to check for plugin conflicts.

    Confirmed that they’re updated. It only happens when sending a text message to someone, nowhere else.

    We looked at the homepage here and we can see there is unexpected text in the title field. See image:

    We are not sure if a full conflict check was done but we ask that you please try the following:

    1. Are all your non-Yoast plugins and themes also updated?

    2. If all are updated, it sounds like a plugin or theme conflict. Please Check for conflicts. Install the Healthcheck plugin and enable troubleshooting. Then switch to a standard theme like 2021. Does the issue resolve? NOTE: This will not affect how users see your site.

    Then inspect the source code for that <title tag. This guide explains more about how to do that:

    If there is a conflict with a plugin or a theme, you can create a new GitHub issue for our developers. Please report the issue to a third party developer as well.

    Okay I downloaded healthcheck and checked the source code but I don’t understand the healthcheck to know what the problem is or what to do about it. If I change the theme won’t it mess up all my information ?

    Hi @shopstonedqueen,

    We haven’t heard of an issue like this from other users. Can you let us know what messaging app you’re using?

    The Health Check plugin has a Troubleshooting mode that lets you deactivate plugins and change themes without making any permanent changes to your site. This means that only you will be able to see any of these changes while troubleshooting mode is on.

    We’d like you to check the page source while only the Yoast SEO plugin is activated to see if the extra information is in the <title> or og:title.

    We have step-by-step instructions on how to use Health Check to deactivate plugins and change the themes in this guide: How to check for conflicts.

    Let us know the results or if you get stuck on a specific step.

    Step 7 there’s no troubleshooting tab. Just status and info.
