    Yoast lets you set up meta description for posts and other categories under the Titles & Metas Tag- Yoast SEO

    okay now it does not run the stop light seo helper in the new posts section, yet it does in the category section only on my Schema premium wordpress theme, dont know if that matters or not, any how.

    Number one question, how do you insert meta description for individual posts, as the generic one under “posts” in the Titles & Metas – Yoast SEO main tab will not be the same as your specific target word individual word press POSTS. Individual posts target specific keywords so you do not want the default info used for all your posts as they do not target specific topics in your posts. see?

    So I can get green bullets for every last thing up to one where it says no meta data description indicated for this category.

    2nd question would be why does yoast only work in the category area of the posts tab and not in the posts themselves?

    Do I write my post in the category section, then copy it, delete it, and then paste it to the posts section after? Leaving only a meta description behind in the categories tab when done?

    Will that description left in the categories tag then act as the meta description?

    Or is there a code I add to the posts at the top and include a manual meta description for individual posts that way?

    Trying to figure out where and how the meta description is handled for individual posts, and if I have to do something manually to override the generic meta description in the general tab Titles & Metas Tag- Yoast SEO

    Now if the answer is Buy the Premium version, will it do exactly what I want it to described above? Or will I still get a generic meta description for all posts area in the general tab?

    If there is a code to put in the head section that would utilize individual meta descriptions for posts, what is it, and how do I put it in the head of my wordpress theme?

    Oh man! Figured out how to do this.

    There’s a big pencil beside the title and meta description at the bottom of your post. You just click on the title or description and you can edit it.

    lol,,, my issue way beyond the pencil thing, that I know how to use, the yoast software not loading under post work area in my SCHEMA premium wordpress theme is the issue. But thanks for your input

    UPDATE nice lady from yoast contacted me, and gave me procedure to check out,,,,turns out DOES NOT WORK WITH SCHEMA THEME. If you want Yoast do not use schema theme, or if you want Schema theme dont use Yoast. I unloaded every plug in…all…even jetpack,,, still did not work but yoast did work on twenty 14 test theme page.

    Unfortunately its the theme I just paid premium for and I want it (Schema). sooooooo very aggravating. Cant have both…uggg

    Next question ….. What all themes does YOast work with properly so I dont waste more time…..

    I hope this helps people not to waste a TON of time trying to figure these 2 things out like I did…what a waste of time. yoast and schema not compatible.

    Need a list of premium fast themes posted that I can buy, with no compatibility issues with yoast, Because I do want the plug in….. starting my own dang mini blog here….lol
