    Hi Guys,

    Thank you for the latest update.

    SEO Support in the new admin panel: Should this be set to Let SEO plugin set tag for Yoast users? If yoast is used with default settings.

    I am sure many others will ask the same question.


    Hey Thomas,

    There is an explanatory text next to the dropdown:

    Select how Enfold will handle this header meta tag (index, follow). If you use a SEO plugin, you should leave this to plugin.

    I’m no expert in the the field, but if you are using Yoast then it’s likely better to use the plugin settings.

    Best regards,


    I am having an issue with Yoast.
    I am using the very last version of Enfold ( and the premium version of Yoast SEO.
    The features of the plugin are disabled in articles and pages.
    Whatever I use (advanced editor or not) I can’t benefit from my premium Yoast plugin.
    The value “Let SEO plugin set this tag” is selected in the Seo support tab from the Enfold configuration.
    Can you help me?
    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard – As I thought. Others will ask!

    @francemedics – have you set let the SEO plugin set this tag?

    Which features specifically are not working?
    Have you checked that they are enabled in Yoast Premium’s general settings?


    Thanks for your reply.
    As I have written in my post: yes the “Let SEO plugin set this tag” option is activated.
    The features which are not working is the fact that I can’t edit the tags (title and description).
    When I click on the feature the element is stucked and disabled.
    Yes, it is activated in Yoast Premium general settings.


    Since my last post, I have found the reason why it was not working.
    My licence was not anymore activated. I don’t understand why.
    I have re uploaded the plugin and since the new upload the licence is activated and the features are available.
    So, the issue was not created by the upload of the new version of the theme.


    Glad to hear you fixed it.

    I was about to say the features you mentioned are all included in the free version of the plugin so I am surprised you had an issue.

    I’ll play around with the default settings for this one.

    I assumed that if Yoast was installed it would override the default enfold settings anyway?



    Thank you for the inquiry.

    The Meta tag “robots” settings if set to the second option will just disable the avia_set_follow function which adds the necessary meta tag in the pages, and since Yoast already handles this feature, you can safely disable the function or option. The avia_set_follow function can be found in the enfold\framework\php\function-set-avia-frontend.php file if you want to know more how it handles the meta tags.

    Best regards,


    Hi Ismael,

    Thank you for clarifying. Appreciate this new feature its a good idea.

    I have a couple of sites due to launch soon so I am using them as a testbed for the latest version of Enfold before I role out the updates to my other sites.


    Just to point out, it also appears to bypass the ‘discourage search engines from indexing this site’ feature built in to WP.



    Thank you for the info. We’ll check that and will probably insert additional condition around it if necessary.

    Best regards,



    Added to next release:

    If WP Option “Search engine visibility” is checked:

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />

    will be added (if theme option Meta tag “robots” is set to Use Enfold default settings).



    Thanks Gunter,
    Much appreciated, one of those bugs which wont bother me too much as a professional but for individuals I imagine it causing some confusion.

    Enjoying the current release of Enfold. I’ve got a couple of sites running with it now. About to roll it out to the rest of my server!
