Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » SEO Title

  • Resolved Kratos


    Hi. I found some of my titles, despite the plugin certifying them as okay (blue colour), they were being truncated in Google search. But when I edited them in the block editor, I thought they automatically changed in the SEO metabox too (Yoast does this I guess), but I just checked a post and discovered that this is not the case with TSF and I had to edit the title manually. I had edited several posts over time some of which I do not recall and hence cannot go back and rectify this error. Is it possible to rectify this automatically? E.g. have the SEO metabox adopt the post title sitewide even when it is edited? Also, I realised that I have to save draft and refresh the page for the SEO metabox readings to respond (e.g it could say the title is too short and hence red colour but once I refresh, this goes away) while normally it should respond automatically?

    Hello again!

    Are you using the dev or RC version of TSF v4.0? In that case, thanks for testing! The title notification only turns blue there… What’s the version number of TSF stated in your dashboard’s plugin overview?

    The behavior you’re expecting should be in place in the latest development version (4.0.0-rc3). The public version of TSF v4.0 will be released tomorrow.

    There, the title will update soon after you type it in (unless you’re editing the homepage, which uses the site settings). There also, and this is new, the meta box should update the moment you publish the page, and also periodically during autosaves as you create a new page.

    Please keep in mind that we can’t make the SEO Bar respond to changes on your page in real-time. I’m not going to overwhelm you with the technical details, but the gist is that we rely on WordPress to hand out the latest version of your page. We’re looking for a workaround, as proposed in this issue.

    I hope this clears things up. Keep an eye out for the full release (in 24 to 48 hours), as therein we’ve resolved most of the issues you’ve highlighted. Cheers!

    Thanks for the explanation. Indeed this new update addressed this issue automatically. Thanks.
