    The Yoast Plugin Readability option is not highlighting sections.
    I have tried to unchecked the section checkbox, it is copying content to editor, but not still not highlighting the content.

    Please have a look.



    Also Yoast html get messing up…


    Is this is an issue from Yoast plugin or from generatepress section?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    Sections aren’t compatible with Yoast, unfortunately, as Yoast scans the main WordPress content for your text – it doesn’t look in your post meta, which is where Section data is stored.

    Have you looked at GenerateBlocks?: https://generateblocks.com

    It’s our very own block editor plugin that replaces the Sections module. The Container block in that plugin is basically Sections but with way more features. It’s also compatible with Yoast 🙂


    Hi Tom,
    Thank you for your response.

    GenerateBlocks looks good.

    Our website have lot of pages, build using section.
    Is any easy way to move current sections to GenerateBlocks?

    Is we can add something like this:

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    unfortunately there is no simple way to move Sections to GenerateBlocks – you would need to recreate them manually. I would recommend creating some empty Container Blocks to begin with, with the relevant style: background and padding with an empty Paragraph Block inside then copy and paste your Section content inside them.


    Hi David,
    Thank you for your reply.

    Oh… creating manually will be very difficult… there are more than 150 pages…

    No other solution, right?

    Unfortunately not. The method that Sections uses to output the content is completely different to how the new Block editor works. The other method would be to extract all of the HTML and wrap it in the new Block editors HTML – which would probably be as much of chore as copy and pasting content.
