Hello, I have a simple but important question for my project planning.

Currently, can a toolset custom field be placed in title or description, occupying Rank Math? I am referring to the SEO title or description of the post (or custom post type). I understand that this has always been possible with Yoast, but I am not sure if it is possible with Rank Math

If not, is there planning to add this feature in the future?

Thanks greetings

Hello there,

Checking the Rank Math docs, I can see that it is possible to use custom fields in the title:

Item 39 > hidden link
Custom Field (Advanced)
%customfield(field-name)% shows the custom field value in the title of your post. Replace the field-name with the name of your custom field.

For Yoast, it works similarly, please check this example: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/seo-use-custom-post-data-into-meta-title-or-description/#post-1556117

How we name our custom fields in the database is with the format "wpcf-cust-field-slug". Where you add the wpcf- prefix to the custom field slug.

Peharps you could use this information to try to include the desired custom field in the SEO title?

Thank you, please let us know how that goes.

Thanks for responding, I've tried it and it doesn't seem to work. Do you have a history of it working?

I'm going to write the query directly to Rank Math, eventually this can lead me to other tools in the project I have in mind

Hello there,

We've had reports of issues trying to configure it with Rank Math, while with Yoast SEO for example, it works without any issues.

Can you please check with the Rank Math support to see if they're able to find a solution or more information on what's preventing it from using the data coming from the custom fields?

Thank you, please keep us posted.

It wasn't difficult, what happens is that Toolset simply saves this with the suffix "wpcf"

Then we have to write in Rank Math in the following format:

%customfield(wpcf-field-name)%

It may seem obvious but I did the project last year and I had forgotten that important detail

Thanks for directing me to the answer
