Manual meta description not working

I have 2 sites on Pro. 1 with Yoast & 1 with SEOPress.

Manual meta descriptions are no longer working with either site.

How do I fix this?

Thank you.

Hello @Stella_Luca,

Thanks for writing to us.

It seems that there might be an issue of plugin conflict. I would suggest you troubleshoot with a few of the common issues before we investigate your settings.

  1. Testing For Theme Related Issue
  2. Testing For Plugin Conflict
  3. Theme Update
  4. Child Theme
  5. Css/Js Customization
  6. Increasing Php Memory Limit
  7. Disabling Cache
  8. Disabling Cdn
  9. Permalinks
  10. Version Compatibility

If none of those work, It would be best if you could copying your live website to your staging area. and send your details in a secure note so that we can investigate your setting without breaking your live site. Please provide the following details

  • WordPress Login URL
  • Admin level username and password
  • FTP Details

You can find the Secure Note button at the bottom of your posts


Thank you, just sent the login details.

Hi @Stella_Luca,

If the issues still exist with the default theme like TwentyTwenty without any plugin installed that means the issue might be in the 3rd Partyplugin you are using to show the meta descriptions. I would suggest you contact the plugin authors on this and let us know the feedback from them.
