[Solved] Can I add new meta lines in overall_header.php

Post by master412160 »

When I view source of index:

<meta name="keywords" content="" />
<meta name="description" content="" />

that display, so I was thinking onl for viewtopic and viewforum the meta tags are used.

So is it possible for me to add under the two meta's the same meta's again but fill them up.

Forum SEO only covers viewforum.php and is displayed when viewing a forum.

Can I add new meta lines in overall_header.php

Post by master412160 »

I know that very well. But my question is can I just add the meta tag for keywords and description twice in the overall_header.php

Without causing the seo mod not to work, so the meta is useless due being used twice.

So it would look like this:

Code: Select all

<meta name="keywords" content="<!-- IF SCRIPT_NAME == "viewforum" -->{FORUM_SEO_KEY}<!-- ELSEIF SEO_KEY -->{SEO_KEY}<!-- ENDIF -->" />
<meta name="description" content="<!-- IF SCRIPT_NAME == "viewforum" -->{FORUM_SEO_DESC}<!-- ELSEIF SEO_DESC -->{SEO_DESC}<!-- ENDIF -->" />
<meta name="keywords" content="keyword 1, kewyrod 2," />
<meta name="description" content="This is a description for the index." />

Close. You have to wrap the second instance with: <!-- IF SCRIPT_NAME == "index" --> to make sure its only displayed on index.
