I noticed that the section where you can specify the post title, the post description, and the post tags for the search engines disappeared from all my posts. I have all the screen option boxes checked. This must have just happened since when I published my last post a few days ago, the meta description section was still there. What can cause this to disappear?GeneratePress 2.1.2GP Premium 1.6.2June 5, 2018 at 9:17 pm #592799LeoStaffCustomer Support
Are those from WordPress? Don’t think I see them either:
If you don’t see them in my video either, then it’s probably from a plugin?
Let me know if this helps 🙂June 6, 2018 at 12:42 am #592868George
I noticed the same phenomenon on all my websites which run on GP. Then I turned off all plugins. That didn’t help. Then I switched to the 2017 theme, AND all plugins were deactivated. That didn’t help either. Now I am stumped. Do you see the metadata fields on your sites? Any idea what is going on?June 6, 2018 at 4:27 am #592970LeoStaffCustomer SupportJune 6, 2018 at 6:25 am #593054George
I don’t see the metabox in your video either.
I tested this with ALL plugins deactivated, and I cannot get the metabox to show in any of my sites.June 6, 2018 at 9:29 am #593245TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJune 6, 2018 at 7:07 pm #593568George
No, no Yoast, and I deactivated all plugins anyway, which didn’t help. It is just strange that the metabox disappeared on all my sites. Without it I have no more influence what shows up in google search results. When you look at your site, does the metabox show up in your posts?

Aha, now I get it, thanks. You are right, this must be from my All-in-one SEO pack plugin, and their latest update must have broken this.June 6, 2018 at 9:04 pm #593642LeoStaffCustomer SupportJune 8, 2018 at 3:59 pm #595560Susan
I think All-In-One SEO changed something in the default settings so that the metaboxes don’t automatically show in pages with sections.
In All-In-One SEO settings, you have to enable SEO for Custom Post Types, then tick the box for “SEO for Custom Post Types: Enabled”
I hope this helps.June 8, 2018 at 7:22 pm #595657
