  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Would you mind sharing some temporary admin access to your site so that we can help in updating the meta descriptions?
    You can do this by editing your first post and entering the access on the sensitive data section.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    added login to Sensitive Data

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I have just logged in to your site and the %wc_title% setting that has been set for the description is loading for your products. I have attached some screenshots on the sensitive data section.

    Let me know if I am missing something. Thank you.

    Hello. No this is not waht i meant.

    Look at the video i sent you on facebook.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, there is no option to mass update posts the way you want. You have to edit each one to update the score because there are some scripts in the plugin that require JS files to be loaded so the tests can run.

    Can you please send the video here so everyone from our team can see it instead? That way, you will receive replies faster.

    Hello, surely you cant expect me to update nearly 4000 items 1 by 1?

    Never had to do that with another seo plugin at all

    ive added the video to the sensitive data

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for sharing the video and sorry for the delay.

    I have added a custom loop to pass all your products through the wp_update_post() function to update them and the meta descriptions should now be loading on the frontend pages.
    Please check whether this is working as expected from your end.

    Hello thanks for the reply. Nothing has changed my end? Do i need to do a drop down bulk update?

    Thanks

    I had to remove that code as it killed my site… went to 503.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I have inspected the page source on a few of your products and the product description is present. Would you mind sharing a link to one of the products that are affected by this issue?
    In regards to the SEO analysis tests, please note that we do not have a tool to bulk update as mentioned above

    Hope to hear back soon.

    Hello. Any new products that are added work fine… Any old products do not work.

    I have to go into the product and click update for it then to work.

    Basically any product that was there before i started using rankmath doesnt show a desciption.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I am afraid that bulk update option is not available for the old products. I can however recommend that you override the default descriptions on your products and set a custom meta description by adding the following filter in your functions.php file as shown below:

    /**
     * Allow changing the meta description sentence from within the theme.
     *
     * @param string $description The description sentence.
     */
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/description', function( $description ) {
            //this code will get the meta description from the WC product short description
            global $product;
            $description = $product->get_short_description();
    	return $description;
    });

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Hello… nah that doesnt really help im afraid 🙁

    Thanks anyway… i will have a play around and if i cant do it will have to go back to yoast 🙁

    All the best

    just to add that code will not work, as it is set so i can have the descriptions set as –

    %title% • Next Day Delivery •

    So you are saying your plugin is no good for products that already exist?

    Yoast handles this no problem? – i just put the %title% • Next Day Delivery • in and it does all products..?

    Thanks
