Head Meta Data

[ Head Meta Data ] Head Meta Data (previously known as Head MetaData Plus) adds a complete set of <meta> tags to the <head> section of all posts and pages on your site. Including meta information about your site is a great way to refine definition, enhance branding, and improve the semantic quality of your pages.

Details

The Head MetaData Plus plugin is designed to complete a site’s head construct by including a choice set of <meta> tags, such as “author” and “copyright.” As a matter of practicality, the more widely used tags such as “description” and “keywords” have been omitted, as they are already present at most WordPress-powered sites. The metadata output via this plugin applies to the entire site.

    Hi,

    I’m from Quebec city and my english is not well.

    I have load your script and the accent on the letter write ?. I have try to write like this é but when I look the code source I see &eacute.

    How can correct this?

    Thank you and excuse my english.

  2. Jeff Starr

    Using &eacute; for an é should work.. ( notice the closing ";" )

  3. First, thanks for you hard work on this plugin. I have a question though. Do we have to remove the empty meta tag for Keyword and Description. I still seee them there.

    and the new keyword and description tag.

    thanks.

    Hi Jenny,
    I am glad you find the plugin useful. If you are using another plugin that generates meta tags, and you are finding multiple instances of, say, the meta description tag, simply open the plugin file, find the meta tag in question, and delete the line entirely. If, on the other hand, you are seeing duplicate tags that are not from another plugin, check the header.php file from your current theme’s template. There, you should see the various meta elements it is displaying. Find the ones that are being duplicated and delete them. I hope this is clear. You are correct in that only one set of meta tags should be displayed for any given page. Duplicates (or empty tags) will invalidate the page. I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you would like further assistance.
    Regards,
    Jeff
