Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Need help running shortcodes on description

  • Hi – I need assistance running shortcodes on the description in WP SEO. I’m using a custom field for the excerpt & inside that field are shortcodes that need to be run.
    does NOT work for me – it zaps my post (which also starts with that custom field!).

    I need to do SOMETHING to run those shortcodes. The function I have to create a custom excerpt works, and i use this shortcode in wp-views to create the excerpts on the home page. But I do not know a lot about filters, so I am sort of lost.

    Here’s the shortcode function

    add_shortcode('review-excerpt', 'custom_excerpt_func');
    function custom_excerpt_func() {
      $post_excerpt = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'wpcf-review-intro', true);
    $post_excerpt = preg_replace('/<img[^>]+\>/i', '',   $post_excerpt);
      $post_excerpt = do_shortcode($post_excerpt);
    $post_excerpt = apply_filters('the_excerpt', $post_excerpt );
     $excerpt_length = apply_filters('excerpt_length', 200);
    $excerpt_more = apply_filters('excerpt_more', ' ' . '[...]');
      return wp_trim_words( $post_excerpt, $excerpt_length, $excerpt_more );
