I have a post that was published some days ago. At that time the “meta robots follow” option was set to no follow. Today we updated the post’s published date, and wanted to change the option to follow (because we now want the page public for all to see).
When I save the change however, and go back to the screen its still set to nofollow. I tried saving the post as draft then republishing, but no luck. I’ve tried changing this value many times with no luck.
When I look at the front-end the meta markup is as expected; “index,nofollow”.
