    hi Guys,

    We use the wordpress to update our site, when we need to edit the SEO details we use Android/Chrome (tested Opera and Firefox too).

    When we edit the Meta description it behaves erratically, deleting words and jumping position.

    we have set up a staging site to test this.

    And also made a video of the issue here:

    Any ideas what’s going on?

  • UPDATE! What I’ve noticed is that if make a typo it will add the corrected word but will delete the correctly spelt words. For example, I typed in sart, it corrected to start and stayed, but when I typed start – it deleted it instantly

    Can you confirm what versions of WordPress and Yoast SEO for WordPress you are using? Does this issue only occur on mobile when using Android and Google Chrome but works on desktop?

    That sounds like a plugin or theme conflict. Can you try and gather as much information for us as possible? Please perform the following:

    1. Make sure the issue doesn’t persist when Yoast SEO is disabled.
    2. Check for conflicts.
    3. Check for JavaScript errors with your console.

    If you find any JavaScript errors related to Yoast SEO or if there is a conflict with a plugin or a theme, you can create a new GitHub issue for our developers. Please report the issue to a third party developer as well.

    If you didn’t find any conflicts or errors, we think the issue is specific to your site. We’d need to investigate further but are unable to do so on these forums. You can purchase Yoast SEO Premium and receive our Premium email support and we can help you further.

    WP5 /Yoast 9.2.1

    Does this issue only occur on mobile when using Android and Google Chrome but works on desktop?

    Correct, any browser on Android

    That sounds like a plugin or theme conflict. Can you try and gather as much information for us as possible? Please perform the following:

    I have disabled all plugins and switched to twentynineteen theme, it still happens.

    Make sure the issue doesn’t persist when Yoast SEO is disabled.

    The Meta Description is not there when Yoast is disabled

    Check for JavaScript errors with your console.

    I don’t have this on android but there are no errors in js console on desktop.

    I’ve tested a few sites with the same results, this is a bug.
