[resolved] issue with title and description template variables (4 posts)

    I have set my post's descriptions and titles to be automatically created with this plugin's template variables which are pulled from custom-field-values. I run the very latest wordpress 3.8.1 and the latest seo plugins version

    ISSUE - After the recent update of the seo plugin it has stopped rendering the variables to their values. Example - This variable %%cf_gender%% is supposed to output/render the custom field value male for the auto-title on the screen but instead it displays the variable itself as %%cf_gender%% !! This is happening on the single post editor screen as well as the manage posts editor screen. Again, this happened only after the recent update. So it may not be a major issue but it would definitely be more sensible and faster to work in the backend with the custom-field values rendered.

    To rule out other possibilities I disabled all other plugins to check if any other plugin has triggered for such behavior but it isn't so. Here is a link to the screenshot as a clear visual reference of what is happening.

    Strangely, this does not cause the issue in the front-end. In the front-end the titles and descriptions are rendered as expected, means the variable template %%cf_gender%% is rendered as the custom field value male. I checked looking at the view-source for several posts, so no issues in the front-end. Any solutions please ?

    QUESTION UPDATE : Just to be absolutely sure that nothing else is causing this, I downloaded wamp and the latest wp 3.8.1 and setup a local WP install. I tested it with only this plugin installed, it still produces the same error.

    I see the bug has been reported here, just had to be sure it is not happening only on my install. Hope this gets sorted soon. Keep up the good work guys. Thank you.
