Severe BuddyPress / Yoast conflict
I’ve searched the internet and this forum in particular for a couple of hours but could not find a proper workaround for this issue:
As you know, BuddyPress setup works by creating two blank pages – members and groups. If I type in a meta description in Yoast for both and preview the pages, the description text is added to the page header and gets properly displayed in the page source text.
But as soon as I assign the two pages to the BuddyPress plugin, the description gets stripped completely. In the page source appears an author note that a description needs to be added.
I could live with that, but I urgently need to make my members page and all its related members profile content invisible to search engines. The severe problem is, that the Yoast settings „noindex, nofollow“ are stripped too.
The BBpress Forum page is not affected by this issue. Yoast can apply a meta description and the „noindex, nofollow“ command, which is a good thing.
Can someone please help me out with a solution?
Thanks in advance,
