Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Red Error Message- no Fix

  • Hi there!

    I’m having a bit of an issue. I have this red error message which says:

    Your theme contains a meta description, which blocks WordPress SEO from working properly, please delete the following line, or press fix it:
    “<meta name=”description” content=”<?php echo strip_tags(get_the_excerpt()); ?>” />

    However- when I click “Fix it” nothing happens. Any ideas to help us here:

  • hi. i think , you should remove of template ….
    This code is probably in the header file

    And you don’t think that this is necessary code?


    As long as your theme’s header.php file contains a call to wp_head(), you can safely remove that one line from the template.
    The plugin will add it’s own <meta name="description"...> tag via the wp_head() call.

    Hope this helps.


    Is this fixed now ? if so, could you mark it as resolved ?
