Adding Meta Tags - orthodox4life - 2013-10-22

What file do I edit to insert meta data?


RE: Adding Meta Tags - Rymax99 - 2013-10-23

Editing your headerinclude is usually how it's done. Go to your ACP (admin control panel) go to the "Themes&Templates" tab, on the left sidebar select templates, select your theme, go to the ungrouped templates, and then headerinclude. Before editing this file, it's a good idea to copy and paste it into a text file on your computer in case you accidentally mess something up.
Location doesn't really matter here, but add
<meta name="description" content="Your description here!" />
<meta name="keywords" content="meta,meta,separate,by,comma" />

Hope I helped :d

This really depends on if you mean meta tags for your overall board for search engines, or if you mean to add meta tags to posts for searching within the board itself. Rymax99's suggestion is for the first.

Only insert meta tags into your index template and use Google SEO plugin for the rest of the forum!!!
If you insert meta tags into your headerinclide template you will run in to duplicate meta tags issuse which is bad for SEO!!!!
