Move Yoast SEO Metabox To Bottom of Post Edit Screen – WordPress

Quick code snippet for your Saturday morning.  I had a client asking about the Yoast Meta box and how her editors often missed specific WordPress custom fields because they did not scroll past the Yoast box to find them.  The client needed a way to push the Yoast SEO box all the way to bottom on the Post (or custom post type) edit/add pages.  Luckily, it was a very simply fix.  Add the following code snippet to your active themes functions.php file:

// Move Yoast to bottom
function wpcover_move_yoast() {
	return 'low';
add_filter( 'wpseo_metabox_prio', 'wpcover_move_yoast');

There you have it! Refresh your post edit or add new page and the Yoast SEO meta box should now be at the very bottom of the page. Happy weekend!
