[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Tags Variables in Title and Description Options (not template) (2 posts)

    I am wondering if there is a way to use variable tags (like %%title%%) in the page options description (the page title recognizes variables/tags and works fine). I know variable/tags can be used in the template description but my question is, can this be done in the individual page option description?

    When i set the page title using a variable/tag the title works fine replacing the %%title%% with the string but when i use the same variable/tag in the description it does not work or recognize the variable. Instead of displaying the variable string it displays "title" without the %%. So variables/tags work on the "page options" title but not in description.

    Is there a way to get the description to recognize the variables/tags either through a setting or hack?

    Again i am talking about the on page options not the template options. Thank you for any help.

    Thank you.

    Same here! Is it possible? Can anyone tell us if we're simply missing something or this feature is not available at all?
