  • I love this plugin, it’s extremely useful. I do however have 1 question. How can I get the automatically generated meta description for posts to ignore all shortcodes such as [gallery]? I sell jewellery on my site which requires the product images to be at the top of the post otherwise I would move them but of course as I am using the WordPress gallery shortcode, the meta description picks this up.

    I realise that I can insert my own meta description in the Yoast box on the post page but then if I change the content of that post, I would need to remember (which is not so easy for me as I have a memory like a fish!) to manually change this each time.

    Is this possible or would I need to do this manually each time?

    Thanks.

  • Plugin is no working any more. It did not split the tag site map after 50,000 urls. SE did not accept heavy sitemap that is more than 50,000. So it is the main bug in this mode. If you website has high traffic than Yoast SEO is no working any more.

    This plugin is working perfectly fine for me, I don’t (and never will) have 50,000 ‘URLS’! And I dare say most people won’t. What is your site to have that many ‘URLS’?

    High traffic wouldn’t have anything to do with ‘breaking’ this plugin either…
