    WordPress version:3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:latest, devel and latest version again
    Woothemes Whitelight theme + woocommerce
    I did this: deactivated all plugins one by one, reinstall wp seo, upgraded to devel version, deactivated all plugins one by one again, back to latest version again

    I expected the plugin to do this: to put proper canonical url/facebook og data and twitter card data in my homepage source

    Instead it did this:

    <!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.2.8.7 - http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/ -->
    <title>TITLE IS OK</title>
    <meta name="description" content="NOT HOMEPAGE DESCRIPTION, INSTEAD IT POOLS DESCRIPTION FROM MY FAQ PAGE"/>
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.myurl.co.uk/frequently-asked-questions/" /> ------ should be http://www.myurl.co.uk/
    <link rel="author" href="https://plus.google.com/11101111111111111111"/>
    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary">
    <meta name="twitter:site" content="@twitter user name">
    <meta name="twitter:creator" content="@twitter user name">
    <meta name="twitter:description" content="NOT HOMEPAGE DESCRIPTION, INSTEAD IT POOLS DESCRIPTION FROM MY FAQ PAGE">
    <meta property='og:locale' content='en_US'/>
    <meta property='fb:app_id' content='111111111111111'/>
    <meta property='og:title' content='TITLE IS OK'/>
    <meta property='og:description' content='NOT HOMEPAGE DESCRIPTION, INSTEAD IT POOLS DESCRIPTION FROM MY FAQ PAGE'/>
    <meta property='og:url' content='http://www.myurl.co.uk/frequently-asked-questions/'/> should be http://www.myurl.co.uk/
    <meta property='og:site_name' content='SITE NAME'/>
    <meta property='og:type' content='article'/>
    <!-- / Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. -->

    Plugin puts wrong canonical link and metadata on my homepage, when I type http://www.myurl.co.uk - it takes me to my homepage but with wrong canonical in the source, when I remove the "/frequently-asked-questions/" page from wordpress and try to go to my homepage again it takes me to "http://www.myurl.co.uk/frequently-asked-questions/" and shows 404 error.

    I found a couple of ideas on this forum but none of them work. All other pages are ok, it's just this one and the most important one ( and the only one I cant edit canonical url for from plugin dashboard. Any ideas how to fix it? I dont want to get rid of this plugin.
