Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Open Graph Just Can't Be Disabled

  • Resolved tqueiroz


    Hi guys,

    Can you help me out here? My WP blog has been working fine until a couple days ago, then I start getting duplicate OG tag errors in Facebook.

    I’ve always let OG tags disabled on WordPress SEO because I prefer to let other plugin (Add Link to Facebook) do it, and it’s been working fine since then.

    But now, it just stopped working. I’ve tried checking/unchecking again the “Add Open Graph meta data” option, cleaning up cache, disabling WP Super Cache plugin, everything, but the only time I stop getting errors is when I disable WordPress SEO plugin.

    When I reenable, I start getting errors again.

    Does anybody know how to effectively disable OG tags in WordPress SEO plugin?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Just to add, I have tried this on versions 1.4.15, 1.4.14 and 1.4.13.

    ======== EDIT

    I have just set all settings back to default and reconfigured everything, using the very same settings. It’s working now 🙂

    You will have to find the plugin (or maybe the theme) that also outputs OGP meta tags. Add Link to Facebook outputs the correct tags and there were no changes in the recent versions.

    I had a customer with the same issue recently – couldn’t disable the WordPress SEO by Yoast Open Graph meta tags (unchecking the option didn’t work). Try adding the following to your functions.php file:

    global $wpseo_og, $wpseo_twitter;
    remove_action( 'wpseo_head', array( $wpseo_og, 'opengraph' ), 30 );
    remove_action( 'wpseo_head', array( $wpseo_twitter, 'twitter' ), 40 );

    Worked for me. 😉
