[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Category Description and Title is removed (Genesis WP) (4 posts)

    When I activate the SEO plugin, my Category titles and descriptions are no longer displayed on category archive pages. I looked around in the plugin settings, but did not find a way to turn that feature back on. How is this accomplished?

    I am using Genesis and a custom child theme, btw.

    I ran into this same problem today with the SEO plugin and Genesis. Before WordPress SEO we have Genesis options to show category title/description. Activate WordPress SEO and no more options.

    Well, I don't have a solution to turn the titles & descriptions on through WordPres SEO but I figured out a way to display my category titles using conditional tags and the Genesis simple hooks plugin. Maybe it will help you.

    Within the genesis_before_loop Hook I put the following code.

    if(is_archive()) { ?>
        <h1 class="entry-title"><?php single_cat_title(); ?></h1>
    <?php }

    This seems to work well to output the titles. Perhaps something similar can be done for the descriptions.

    I'm having the same issue .. with WordPress SEO activated the Genesis Category Archive options are no longer available on the Edit Category page and category descriptions are not displayed on the category archive pages.
