    Hello,

    First of all, i wish you a very happy new year filled with nothing but success 🙂

    I start using Yoast lately, and While i’m working on my website i have noticed that the following page https://mysite.com/?read-it-later it has no meta tags, all the other pages of the site have their own meta tags except for this one. In addition of that it shows a canonical url for a different page that is not related to it. Which is problematic !

    So i would like to know how i can add specific tags for this page, is there any way to target specific urls so that Yoast generates tags of my choosing perhaps ?

    Thank you for your help.

    That is an unusual permalink with ?read-it-later. Depending on how that page is created, it may require integration between the plugin/theme that creates that permalink and Yoast SEO. Can you elaborate on how the ?read-it-later page is created?

    Thank you for your reply !

    I think it’s created in PHP, when you access page there is a test to see if the variable “read-it-later” exists in the url, if it does then the content page changes and shows the bookmarked articles saved in the session.

    So it’s not an actual physical page on wordpress, it’s generated automatically.

    What i would like to do is target with YOAST or perhaps with some custom code this specific url. When it’s active generate perhaps the title tags needed.

    Does that makes sense?

    Hi,

    We understand the concern. If the page is made dynamically and does not have a physical presence in WordPress, Yoast may not be able to work on it correctly.

    We can only say that you might be able to develop on the Yoast the ability to force the meta data to appear on it such as titles.

    Unfortunately, there’s a difference between the support we can offer and the level of programming needed to change (core) features of our plugin. Since we don’t want to take the risk that we break your website by suggesting incorrect or incomplete code, we cannot advise you on how to make such changes. And even though we cannot be of any assistance, you’re completely free to change anything in the plugin to better suit your needs.

    If needed, we highly recommend checking out the Yoast supported partners here: https://yoast.com/yoast-partners/. 

    Moreover, you may also need to add it the sitemap. This comment by a member of the community offers a way to do so: https://github.com/Yoast/wordpress-seo/issues/9608#issuecomment-409107308.
