How can I change post settings via JS?

    We need to have a way to update fields in the RankMath metabox via javascript – e.g., set the Snippet title/description on the press of a button.

    It’s easy to set the input field value of those fields. Our problem is that the snippet preview is not updated until we save the post.

    Can you point me to a JS documentation or tell us which function can be used to refresh the Snippet in the metabox?

    Here’s the JS code we have right now:

    jQuery("[name=rank_math_title]").val('New value');

    Thanks! Philipp 🙂

    Please use RankMathApp.metabox.updatePreview(); to update the preview:
    jQuery(“[name=rank_math_title]”).val(‘New value’);

    This should update the preview.

    I hope that helps. Thank you.
