Similar thread here by @CNK

The root cause is due to BBCode tags appearing in the truncated opening post for the meta description.

Consider a thread with just an embedded image or an attachment.

If those tags were stripped completely the content would be blank.

The float_left thing is weird so I need to check that, but the explanation with the attach placeholder is correct and is most definitely as designed. You will see this anywhere we do a plain text representation of BB code content.

float_left is a custom BBCode.
Then you can edit the files as suggested in the other thread, or have an add-on developed.
Yes, I understand. I'm not trying to be argumentative; just a reasonable disagreement.

As more and more people have troublesome BB Code in Meta Description, so you may want to add an option to choose remove all BB code from Meta Description?

I do not think anyone posted topics with the same images without any content...
