    Hi. So, after converting Yoast SEO data with SEO Data Transporter and then uninstalling Yoast and installing this plugin, everything works well with default settings. However, when I change the settings using this guide https://genesisclubbers.com/10071/how-to-set-up-the-seo-framework-plugin/ and then check the source code, the title meta tag is missing for all posts and pages. What could be causing this issue? (Reverted back to Yoast at the moment)

    Hello! Please try switching to one of the default WordPress themes. Clear cache and check if the title is there with the default theme. Let me know how it went 🙂

    Ideally, please provide URL to your website. Cheers!

    Hello!

    Due to the complicated nature of WordPress and The SEO Framework, and the convoluted impact SEO settings have on your site, I don’t recommend following guides like the one from Genesis Clubbers blindly. Yes, it’s an excellent guide, and I support it! But, if you don’t understand their reasoning behind each option change, and the impact on SEO they yield, it’s best not to change them.

    For now, I highly recommend switching back to the default SEO settings via the “Reset Settings” button at the top, follow our 10-settings, 10-minute setup guide (although, most users spend 4 minutes on that page…), and see if your meta tags and titles work again.

    I had to do a bit of digging in your forum-activity to see what might cause this situation. The only thing I could conclusively find is that you’re using the GeneratePress theme. That one won’t make titles and tag disappear. So, I’m a bit flabbergasted as to why your meta-and title tags are disappearing.

    It might be a conflicting object caching plugin, in combination with incorrect Post Type settings. However, none of these should make the <title> tag disappear; WordPress outputs that tag–we merely change the contents.

    We can more conclusively tell if you’d be able to share the URL of your website; after inspecting a few thousand sites, I believe my eye is trained to spot anomalies 🙂 You can do so more confidentially the moment you open a new topic; there’s a dedicated input-field for that.

    I hope this provides a more solid bedrock! Cheers 🙂

    Thanks, for the support. I reset the settings and tried again and only one post failed this time which I recreated meta for manually. I will keep monitoring for a few weeks or months and report back if I notice anything unusual. Thanks.
