    I have noticed that my meta information is not displaying since upgrading to Genesis 2.0.

    Is this a common bug?

    Kevin

    Looking at your site i see your post meta and meta description in the source code.

    Was there another type of meta that you are referring to?

    Hi Brad,

    I hadn’t noticed it was in the source. I am referring to the post date etc. It seems to have been removed from all posts and comments.

    That’s called the post info which you can customize using the Genesis Simple Edits plugin.

    Make sure that plugin has been updated and add the short code for the date added to the plugins post info settings field.

    I installed simple edits again yesterday but it did not resolve the situation.

    I tested it locally on the Metro theme and it works for archives and single posts.

    date

    It maybe a code conflict with some custom code or another plugin.

    Thanks for doing that test Brad. I just disabled all plugins and the meta information did not return.

    My first thought yesterday was that there was something missing from the functions.php template; however yesterday I replaced the functions.php file with the default functions.php template and nothing changed. I looked through every piece of code and could not see anything related to meta information apart from this function:

    // Add Viewport meta tag for mobile browsers
    add_action( 'genesis_meta', 'metro_viewport_meta_tag' );
    function metro_viewport_meta_tag() {
    	echo '<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"/>';

    It’s not your CSS because i loaded your style sheet locally and the date displays so it must be the PHP somewhere which is something i don’t have access to only the output.

    There is no external scripts being used. The only PHP being used is in the templates and in the plugins (which deactivated and changed nothing).

    Other WordPress websites on my hosting account are displaying the date correctly, which rules out it being a server issue. I am using Genesis on another website and that displays the date too: Which is baffling!

    UPDATE:

    I found out what was wrong. You won’t believe this!!! haha

    Under the WordPress general settings area, the data field had incorrectly been set to custom. I reset it to date format and it is displaying correctly.

    I have no idea how that changed as I have no changed any settings there in a long time.

    Regardless, I appreciate your help on the matter.

    I’ll just go and stick my head in the sand now :)

    Sorry, it looks really new with that theme.

    I was a regular reader when you blogged about WordPress and sold your site recently so assumed it was new.

    That was actually a different website :)

    I ran BloggingTips.com from 2007 to 2010 and WPMods.com from 2010 to 2012. I write on my personal blog now, however I still freelance for many other blogs.

    Yeah you must have been a subscriber of one of my old blogs. I founded bloggingtips.com in 2007 and sold it in 2010. In 2010 I founded wpmods.com and later sold it in 2012.

    I now blog through my personal blog, however I still freelance for many other websites.
