Shortcodes not working

Sometimes, you have a shortcode in the post content or your page executes a special shortcode from a plugin like WooCommerce or EDD Invoices, and you see a blank page or the shortcode doesn't work at all.

The root cause might be that Slim SEO already parses the shortcodes when it tries to auto generate meta description. If the shortcode has something related to session, custom logic, etc., then it might not work as expected.

To fix this problem, you can put the following snippet in your theme's functions.php file:

add_filter( 'slim_seo_skipped_shortcodes', function( $shortcodes ) {
$shortcodes[] = 'your_shortcode';
return $shortcodes;
} );

Blocks not working

Similar to shortcodes, some blocks might not working properly. To fix this problem, use the following snippet:

add_filter( 'slim_seo_skipped_blocks', function( $blocks ) {
$blocks[] = 'namespace/your-block-name';
return $blocks;
} );
