    When did Yoast remove the functions to set SEO title and meta descriptions via snippets for content types, taxonomies and archives in the free version? I just realized this useful function is gone on all sites with the free version but not on sites with the paid Yoast SEO Premium plugin.

  • @emmtre Which functions have been removed? Have you checked for possible new alternatives?

    Yoast have removed the functions to set SEO title and meta descriptions via snippets for content types, taxonomies and archives in the free version. Go to the Yoast SEO settings and the appearance submenu and the content types tab. The fields for SEO title and meta description are missing for all post types in the free version. When did Yoast remove this functions in the free version? The functions are still there in the paid Yoast SEO Premium plugin so they have not been moved somewhere else.

    So you’re referring to features, not functions.

    I’ve double checked and I can see the SEO box with full snippet control everywhere, including custom post types and taxonomies.

    To open that, you just need to click the “Edit Snippet” button under the snippet preview.

    If you can’t see the SEO box at all, check the plugin’s setting, as this can be disabled globally and by role. If you’re not the site administrator, check with the administrator.

    I’m not talking about the SEO box in a single page, post, etc. Please read what I wrote. It’s the global SEO settings SEO title and meta descriptions that are gone in the free version. Go to the Yoast SEO settings and the appearance submenu and the content types tab. The fields for SEO title and meta description are missing for all post types in the free version.

    For me these settings are still available with the free version….

    For me too. Check your browser console, error logs and try reinstalling the plugin

    OK, found the problem. Javascript error with the new HelpScout beacon in 12.6. Now I just need to find out why?

    If you want help from the community, you really need to provide detailed information. We can’t see what you see.

    If you are getting any javascript error, we would like to rule out any plugin or theme conflicts that may occur. The fastest way to do this is to deactivate all non-Yoast plugins and switch to a standard theme like Twenty Nineteen

    Test this on your development or staging site, if you have one. If not, we recommend using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin. This plugin allows you to run a conflict check without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    As we can imagine that you’re unfamiliar with checking for conflicts, we’d like to point you to a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process: How to check for plugin conflicts.
