Generate Meta description

Hi everyone! Is there a way to generate meta description from post content and comments for yandex and other search engines?

I found very old post related to Vanilla Seo addon and inner search engine optimization.

    Vanilla creates meta descriptions from post contents:

    <meta property="og:type" content="article" />
    <meta property="fb:app_id" content="140915679292796" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Vanilla Forums" />
    <meta name="twitter:title" property="og:title" content="Generate Meta description" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="https://open.vanillaforums.com/discussion/37868/generate-meta-description" />
    <meta name="description" property="og:description" content="Hi everyone! Is there a way to generate meta description from post content and comments for yandex and other search engines?" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="https://us.v-cdn.net/5018160/uploads/0c8fea29154e9f86f5db5e6f3e1ff6fa.png" />
    <meta name="twitter:description" content="Hi everyone! Is there a way to generate meta description from post content and comments for yandex and other search engines?" />
    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
    

    In case you are asking for keywords, they are not relevant to search engines anymore.

    Very vital when posting links in Chat software like Slack and stuff (like vf's new embed)


    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Discourse Meta" />

    Hi, @Bleistivt, thanks. Nice to know. Why I asking - Yandex WebMaster (this is something like Google Search Console) reports "Meta tags Description are missing or incorrectly filled on many pages of the site. This can adversely affect the search results." But this is "possible" error, not "critical". Technical support says don't worry this affects nothing. 😵
