Hi there, i'm facing problem when try to read Yoast var inside category template.
If i try to print the title with wp_title(), i get the correct snippet rewrite from yoast, but i'm not able to read description.
I did
get_term_meta($category->id, '_yoast_wpseo_title' ,true);
get_term_meta($category->id, '_yoast_wpseo_metadesc' ,true);
always return empty values. My question is how to read title and desc snippet by code side?

You could use:
get_post_meta($post->ID, '_yoast_wpseo_metadesc' ,true);

You can also check if is_tag() post type. This example capitalizes the title.

add_filter( 'wpseo_title', 'uppercase_seo_title' );
function uppercase_seo_title( $title ) {
	if ( is_tax() ) {
		return ucwords( $title );
	}
	return $title;
}

Thank You

Needed to change in line 22 from is_single to is_page but then it worked like a charm for me. Searched the whole web and a longer time to fix this issue with wordpress, yoast and salient theme.

Big, big thanks amboutwe!!
