3. Scroll down to the “Home Page Settings” section and enter your “Home Title” and “Home Description”.
4. Click the “Update Options” button.
5. If you are using a static front page click “All in One SEO”, then “General Settings”.
6. Scroll down to the “Home Page Settings” section and click the enabled option next to “Use Static Front Page Instead”.
7. Click the “Update Options” button.
Now when you go to “Pages” and “Edit” a page, you will see an All in One SEO section on the bottom where you can fill in your meta “Title and Description”.

      Hello, the guy that worked on my website and made a new one, he took out the All In One SEO plugin because I use to be able to do what you are doing, and I can't now because he deactivated that one and put in another that does NOT have you you are showing here…the all in one seo. Do you have to deactivate a plugin before installing a new one? He put one called "Slim SEO" plugin in place of the one mentioned above. Now when I do a search in Google for my website, all the words in the title are not there like before! Someone Please help??!!
