Yoast SEO will not load alongside this plugin

Hi I am a recent combo-pack purchaser. 

On a dev site I removed all our plugins except for Yoast SEO and the business directory. I switched to the twentytwelve theme. Yoast SEO does not load up at all on directory pages. It works fine elsewhere on my site, but it doesn't load right with BD.

Oddly when I switch to twentytwelve the titles at least are fixed (in my theme the title is just the URL) but it still doesn't appear that Yoast's other information is coming through.

I need at least the titles to be working to use this plugn, and preferably the full SEO package. Any pointers?

So strangely I got titles back when I switched to twentywelve and then back to my theme, but they are weirdly broken, repeating the site name so they look like:

Directory Entry | Site NameSite name

Still nothing I can seem to do to change them, and no Yoast loading in header.

Hi Matthew,

What Yoast settings have you configured so far? Under "Post Types" and "Taxonomies" tabs of Yoast plugin, you need to set the "Directory" templates separately as compared to the posts or pages templates. You will also need to set page-specific titles on the listings themselves.

Furthermore, our guess is that your theme is trying to be clever about the SEO content of pages. You may consider contacting the theme developer and ask if they can disable their SEO functionality in favor of Yoast (which will probably do a better job, honestly…Joost DeValk knows his stuff, I'd trust him over pretty much everyone else for SEO).  If that doesn't work, you should probably consider another theme.

I guess the <title> code in my theme custom theme, pinched from twentyeleven, was deprecated. I swapped it out for the title script from twentytwelve and the title seems to be working now. Guess you were right! 

I don't think I quite understand what you mean by "You will also need to set page-specific titles on the listings themselves."

Also, I'm still not getting the full Yoast features to run on directory pages. Most of my pages have something that look like this in the header:

 

What I mean is that I do not see this section in my header, as I do on other posts/pages:

`<!– This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.4.7 – http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/ –>
<meta name="description" content="blah blah blah"/>

Hi Matthew,

We need to get further input from our developer on this. We are developing a how-to guide with Yoast on it and there are some nuances we need to explain. Our developer is out this week on a family emergency, we'll get something as soon as we're able.
Thank you for your patience.

Sounds good. One thing to include would be to make sure that "Force re-write titles" is turned off in Yoast, as that was part of the issue for us.

I'm experiencing the same problem. I'm running Catchbox theme on WordPress 3.4.1 with Yoast and the plugin doesn't pull the title or meta descriptions that I'm setting up under the Directory templates in the Yoast plugin.

Hi rebecca,

Sorry that you are having this issue. What version of BD are you using? Have you tried switching themes to test this problem?

I'm having the same issues with title.

The main page at http://tenerifeforum.org.es/te…..directory/ shows no title/meta although it is set up in Yoast correctly.

Both theme and plugins are up to date and if you look at the browser, it only shows the url.

 

Funnily, it seemed to work before the recent update so maybe that was it. 

I was actually thinking of working on the directory to develop it into a paid service but with so many issues, I'm kinda put off.

Hi Juba,

We are sorry for inconvenience. Please go to Yoast settings and check if the "Force rewrite titles" is enabled. If it is, please disable that option and see if this fixes your problem.

Let us know your feedback.

Hi

When I disable the 'Force Rewrite' in Yoast, the title for the directory shows but it also disables all the other page and post titles so it looks like the whole site is affected when I disable it.

 

It's a tough call and seeing as there is no other solution, I'm convinced that I have to deactivate the directory plugin.

Such a shame it has this conflict and I need to have the settings in Yoast to rank in Google.

 

It' s a nice plugin and hope you'll find a way to fix it so that it works with other plugins.:)

If you do eventually get it fixed, let me know and I'll give it another test.

Thanks again.

We will look into it further to see if there's something we can address directly right now. We apologize for this issue.
