we use metaboxes and the Yoast SEO plugin on many websites.
Unfortunately, if you want to edit a page, the Yoast Seo block is above the meta boxes by default. Of course, the order can be changed individually for each user, but this is very cumbersome.
Can we change the default order so that the metabox blocks are above the Yoast SEO plugin?
The order of meta boxes when editing a post is saved to the user meta. You can just drag and drop the Yoast meta box below once and it will be saved to your data. I think the issue happens when the meta box is registered at the init hook with the priority 20 so the meta box from the Meta Box plugin always displays under the Yoast meta box by default and there is no way to change this by coding.
