    Hi Everyone,

    I've noticed on a few blog post in the edit post screen under custom fields the following option:

    seo_follow and it's set to false.

    What does this mean and what is it doing to the blog post? Is this okay to have right there???

    I'm just confused because some of my post don't have this custom field and some do???

    Is it okay to delete that custom field or will it mess something up?

    Any help would be great. Thanks

    Sounds like you had an SEO plugin installed & active a while ago that used this custom field. If you are no longer using that plugin, it should be safe to remove the field.

    I was wondering this myself. On one of the blogs having this issue I used to have ALL In ONE SEO installed and fresh news theme from Woothemes and have since changed to thesis 1.8

    Now on a few of the other blogs which are fresh installs of thesis 1.8 I never installed any seo plugins and i'm seeing it. Odd.

    If this was enabled for certain post what does it actually do to the post? Would this keep google from indexing it or something?

    Thanks btw

    There's an outside chance that the field could be part of the Thesis theme. Try asking on the theme's support forum before removing the field.

    I'll do that. Yeah I'm starting to think your right though and it's something else because it doesnt' appear on all blog post. Either way I'll ask them. Thanks :)
