    Hello,
    after the new update of the Yoast Seo plugin I saw that creating a new post Yoast placed automatically the variables excerpt and title inside in everythe seo post snippet. Does this mean that if put and set the templates for the meta descriptions and meta title with the same variables as the post snippet, Yoast will force my meta description to show as excerpt from my post. Or should I use this option which is provided by the Word Press itself.
    best regards

    Yoast SEO automatically creates the snippet title and description based on the templates here: Admin > SEO > Search Appearances

    In recent versions, we display the template variable at the post/page level as a reminder of what our plugin will create behind the scenes.

    Optionally, you can manually change the snippet title and description at the post level by removing the variables and replacing them with static text or other variables.

    The %%excerpt%% variable uses the excerpt defined on the post/page. If the excerpt has not been defined on the post/page, Yoast SEO will use the auto-generated excerpt. If you do not want to use the auto-generated excerpt, the %%excerpt_only%% variable with only use the excerpt defined on the post/page.
