Description

It's about this page: https://richarddetering.com/2021/04/07/wat-is-webhosting-2/ This single post is WITHOUT a meta description.
Am using the latest version of WP. I disabled all plugins and used the default theme. When I change the permalink to post name something very weird happens to my article. In the source code is a meta description consisting of the first few lines of my post including the CSS used! So it's a wrong meta description. When I change the permalink back to what it's now (date + post name) the weird description produced by WP itself disappears. Thanks and good luck with this mystery!

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Replying to richard1250:

When I change the permalink back to what it's now (date + post name) the weird description produced by WP itself disappears.

Just to clarify, WordPress does not output any meta description by default, so this is likely a theme or plugin issue.
