Genesis framework & Yoast SEO WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi Guys

I'm having a mental block with this and just wanted to ask a question

When you have Genesis installed and a child them (for example Minimum Pro) the home page is mainly made up of widget content

This means when you are trying to optimise the home page using the Yoast SEO plugin you do not have a physical page to optimise by editing the settings under the page editor.

I thought Yoast SEO used to have a section especially for this type of home page but It just shows me a link to edit the home page directly

Obviously this is not the actual home page.

Without Yoast installed Genesis has its own SEO settings with a special home page section where you can optimise your widgetised home page.

I've googled this but cannot come up with a decent answer.

Can anyone help /point me in the right direction.

Thanks
Steve

please check the Reading Options (/wp-admin/options-reading.php),
is A static page thicked as the Front page displays?


if <strong>A static page</strong> thicked as the Front page displays,
then you can edit Titles & Metas on the post (page) editor (/wp-admin/post.php?post=X&action=edit)
scroll down the page, Wordpress SEO by Yoast metabox placed under Genesis layout setting.

if <strong>Your latest posts</strong> thicked as the Front page displays,
then you can edit Titles & Metas under Yoast Setting (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_titles#top#home)
