This will require you moving into the files of the theme, please note that this is dangerous and can break the theme if you don’t do it correctly. Please always use caution!!!

That being said let’s fix this!

Go To Appearance -> Theme Editor -> Find and Edit functions.php

line 958 (find this line)
add_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘add_opengraph_meta’ );

add // to the front to look like the below

//add_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘add_opengraph_meta’ );

This will “comment it out” and stop it from running it until the next theme update… since I cant child theme this it will have to be fixed on each update. That comment should stop the whole meta phase from being done.

There is no way to child theme this as I keep trying since no child theme any code changes will not be there should you update and you should update. Make sure to know where you made changes to re-apply.

    1. It did when I tested here as they are only added when a page is rendered so they don’t exist until the point of post display for a reader.
