[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Trouble Getting WP SEO Meta Description to Populate (1 post)

    WordPress Version: 3.3.2
    WP SEO Version: 1.2.3

    I installed and set up WP SEO on the site http://a1janitorial.com and configured WP SEO. Nothing fancy, and WP SEO automatically selected the wp_title override option. I've updated the WP SEO meta fields in the pages. The problem is... the theme has hardcoded a bunch of additions to wp_title and copied the basic wp_title to the meta description (crappy logic - imo).

    So, I took out the additions on the wp_title logic in the theme and the title comes out as expected... what I enter in the WP SEO fields. I'm a little stuck on the meta description. I left it blank and it didn't populate. Left as is, it doesn't populate. What should the meta description line look like in the header.php theme file for WP SEO to be able to do its stuff?

    Thank you!
