I just downloaded and activated SEO ultimate and for some reason the description tag is empty. These are pages and when I enter something, nothing populates in the code section. I looked everywhere. Here is the code I am using to get my description from SEO ultimate.
SEO Ultimate should add a <meta> description to your site automatically; you don’t need to add any code (unless your theme neglected to include a <?php wp_head(); ?> call in header.php, in which case you’ll need to add that yourself).
If your theme has a <?php wp_head(); ?> call, make sure the post or page in question has something entered into the “Meta Description” field of the “SEO Settings” section of the post/page editor.
