Support » Plugin: Pinterest for WooCommerce » Plugin conflict with RankMath

  • Resolved gretablue

    (@gretablue)


    I’ve just discovered that the Pinterest for WooCommerce plugin has been creating a duplicate set of open graph metafields on my blog posts. For example: og:description – etc. These duplicates have been over-riding my RankMath SEO plugin og:description fields, which are the ones I have been focusing on for my social media sharing descriptions. Very annoying. The only thing I can do is deactivate the Pinterest for WooCommerce plugin. Since I’ve had no luck with it anyway, and have been disapproved twice for Pinterest Shopping since I installed it, this is not much of a loss.

    Hey @gretablue

    Hope you are doing well!

    if you already have the open graph meta fields, you can deactivate the options “Add Rich Pins for Products” and “Add Rich Pins for Posts” on the Settings tab on “Marketing > Pinterest”. This way the meta fields won’t be added to your site.

    To avoid issues on your live site, I suggest testing first on a staging site. (with this plugin or with other plugins).

    Let me know if that helps.

    Best,

    Thanks for the tip. What could be the issues on my live site? I can’t use a staging site as my host charges an arm and a leg for it.

    Hey @gretablue,

    We are checking right now with the development team. My first theory is that they are only duplicated because both plugins are creating them, but I don’t know what other effect might this leads to.

    are there any special settings on the plugin RankMath that you are using?

    Hey @gretablue

    I just analyzed the RankMath and Pinterest Meta tags:

    Pinterest Meta:
    meta property=”og:url” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:site_name” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:title” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:type” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:image” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”product:price:currency” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”product:price:amount” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:price:standard_amount”
    meta property=”og:description” Also created by RankMath
    meta property=”og:availability” Also created by RankMath

    Basically, the only one that RankMath does not create is: meta property="og:price:standard_amount" but is not relevant, it is the original price when they have a sales price.

    By deactivating the settings “Add Rich Pins for Products” and “Add Rich Pins for Posts” both plugins can be activated without a problem.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Best,
    Christian

    I’ve implemented your suggested fix and it looks good so far, thank you. Let’s hope I can get around the rejections by Pinterest, and actually put the plugin to use!
