#62480 Yoast Meta Description shows Visual Composer Code
Horton Foundry 8 months, 1 week ago
I know we’ve had this issue for a few years and not sure we’ve ever asked – is there a way for Jupiter to auto generate Visual Composer page meta descriptions using a standard Yoast template like %%excerpt%%?
I found http://shitalmarakana.com/add-meta-description-pages-divi-builder-yoast-seo-plugin-without-use-excerpt-variable/ which does similar for Divi, just didn’t know if I was missing an approach that currently exists to let Yoast auto generate based on the content IN Visual Composer.
Thanks so much-Alexander Hutsol Support Team 8 months, 1 week ago
I found there were some incompatibilities with Yoast and WPBakery, but seems they fixed it in the new version.
Is your SEO plugin updated?

As you know, the Yoast plugin fetches the first sentences of the page content, since the page is built with shortcodes, it can not parse the shortcodes. For now, it’s best to edit the description field in every page and enter a custom text. Actually, it’s somehow better, because it gives you the power to write specific description for your page.
In order to see the below field, please click on the description and the below filed for editing description will be shown.
Thank you for understanding.

Yes that’s how we’ve been doing it for years until we realized some other themes write in something to pull text from the shortcodes so thought I’d ask, thanks.Tatyana Hutsol Support Team 8 months ago
