      Can you please tell me how to implement meta description word limit to ensure good and consistent SEO in the product page. Admin should be able to control the number since it keeps changing as per google norms. We are talking about store–>product>seo , vendor can fill up meta description. Without the limit, site seo is impacted negatively.

      Add this js in your theme’s js file -(replace wordlen with your required word limit)

      if( $('.vendor-dashboard textarea#yoast_wpseo_metadesc').length > 0 ) {
          var wordLen = 10,
          len; // Maximum word length
          $('.vendor-dashboard textarea#yoast_wpseo_metadesc').keydown(function(event) {  
            len = $('.vendor-dashboard textarea#yoast_wpseo_metadesc').val().split(/[\s]+/);
            if (len.length > wordLen) { 
              if ( event.keyCode == 46 || event.keyCode == 8 ) {// Allow backspace and delete buttons
              } else if (event.keyCode < 48 || event.keyCode > 57 ) {//all other buttons

      And add this code n your theme’s functions.php –

      add_filter( 'body_class', function( $classes ) {
      	$userid = get_current_user_id();
      	if(wcfm_is_vendor($userid)) {
            $classes = array_merge( $classes, array( 'vendor-dashboard' ) );
      	return $classes;
