Shows Yoast SEO Term Meta

Yoast SEO stores its term (ie. categories, tags, and custom taxonomies) metadata in the WordPress options table, not the term meta table.

The JSM Show Term Metadata plugin can read and display Yoast SEO's term metadata, but it cannot be deleted (as it does not reside in the WordPress term meta table).
