Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Exclude custom post from robots function

  • Resolved rtenny


    I have a plugin that handle property listings as custom post type.
    The robots meta gets handle by this plugin and I would like to exclude this post type from the YOAST robots function as I now have 2 conflicting robots meta tags.

    Can this be done? I have already changed the core files but after each update that change would get lost.

    Maybe I can help you (I made something similar). You can use filter wpseo_robots:

    if ( class_exists('WPSEO_Frontend') ) {
          // Yoast SEO is active - add filter wpseo_robots
          add_filter( 'wpseo_robots', 'my_robots_func' );
    } else {
          // use other function
    function my_robots_func( $robotsstr ) {
    	if ( is_singular( 'blabla' ) {
    		return 'noindex,follow';		
    	return $robotsstr;

    I’m not sure that you want it or something else. Also, you have option in SEO dashboard to exclude some post_types. You can post more details on and I’ll try to help you
