  • Hello,

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

    This is very odd, the custom meta description entered should be saved with a higher priority than the auto-generated description.
    Could you please add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file and enter fill the description once more:

    /**
     * Allow changing the meta description sentence from within the theme.
     *
     * @param string $description The description sentence.
     */
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/description', function( $description ) {
            if(is_home()){
            $description = strip_shortcodes($description);
            }
    	return $description;
    });

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hey Micheal,

    Thank you for replying.

    I did as you asked, pasted the code in functions.php, and re-filled custom meta for my Homepage but unluckily it didn’t worked, its still showing some of theme codes as meta.

    And one weird thing i noted is that after filling my meta for my homepage and clicking on update it loads a little and redirects me to my list of posts.

    Hi Izaan,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I can see that the page is served from Litespeed cache, could you please clear you cache and check again.
