Double meta description after platinum seo pack

  1. I am using platinum seo pack. After this plugin is activated, the source code of the site shows 2 meta descriptions: one is the default description, and the other is the platinum seo pack description.

    How can I remove the default description? Is there anything else I should do for optimum SEO when using platinum seo pack?

  2. Hey, sorry for the short answer (iPhone only) .. create a filter that returns FALSE to thematic_show_description(). You might want to do the same with thematic_show_robots(). Leave a note if you need more details, will answer later today.

  4. Hey,

    before you edit your child theme's functions.php get the latest SVN version .. just fixed a bug with the two mentioned functions.

    Add the following code to your child theme's functions.php:

    function remove_description($display) {
    	$display = FALSE;
    	return $display;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_show_description', 'remove_description');
    
    function remove_robots($display) {
    	$display = FALSE;
    	return $display;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_show_robots', 'remove_robots');

    The first filter will switch off the meta tag description, the second one will switch off the meta tag robots.

    Tested with the SVN version 440.

    Cheers,

    Chris

  6. Perfect, thank you! This plugin, combined with the code above, is exactly what I've been looking for.

  7. This snippet is key. Thanks!

    edit: actually it doesn't work... :( what gives?

  8. Even using those functions the description meta is still generated if I have an excerpt.

  9. Never mind. I'm a bit brain dead I think!
