Hello,

I rechecked your site and, everything seems to be working fine. The priority in which description is added to the posts is:

a) Description inserted in Post Setting's Description field
b) Excerpt Text
c) Description added in Settings
d) Auto-generated description from content

All posts on your site have an excerpt, that's the reason why the description is showing the excerpt text on the frontend. To ignore excerpt, i.e. step 2 and show the description added in Settings, please add the code I shared in my previous reply to your theme's functions.php file.

Hope that helps. Thank you.

Hello,

I see the issue on your site but unfortunately, I could not recreate this issue on my setup. Also on your site, I see the issue only on the Article Posts, on pages, it seems to be working fine.

Can you please check if there are any errors logged in debug.log file in wp-content/ folder?

For now, to temporarily fix it on your site, I added below code to your active theme's funcitons.php file:

add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/description', function( $desc ) {
	if( is_singular() ) {
		global $post;
		$desc = get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'rank_math_description', true );
		if( ! $desc ) {
			$settings = get_option( 'rank-math-options-titles' );
			$desc = $settings["pt_{$post->post_type}_description"];
			$desc = RankMath\Helper::replace_vars( $desc );
		}
	}

	return $desc;
});

The posts now show the description added in Settings.

The code I added fix the issue but please do share the error log information in the Sensitive Data Section so we can further debug the issue on your site as we are not able to reproduce it on our setup.

Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

Hello,

This is not an issue, that's how Rank Math adds the description. If a description is not added in the form then it uses the excerpt content and if there is no content in excerpt then it uses the default description added in settings. To prevent the plugin from using excerpt content you will have to add the filter code I gave you before. There is no other option since it's not an issue.

Hope that helps. Please let us know if there is anything else.

Thank you.

ok. i see how to fix it in global way.

a) Description inserted in Post Setting's Description field
b) Excerpt Text
c) Description added in Settings
d) Auto-generated description from content

is a wrong. first

a) - after this need to be c) - after this b) and on the end d)

people use Excerpt to provide various information from post. (some templates allow it) so i think will be a better to move point b) under the c) tnx.
