Add Meta Tags

A metadata plugin that can optimize your web site for more efficient indexing and easier sharing of your content. [DEPRECATED]

NOTICE: THIS PLUGIN HAS BEEN DEPRECATED. IT IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. IT IS NO LONGER TESTED WITH NEW WORDPRESS RELEASES. USING IT IN PRODUCTION IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

IT IS STRONGLY SUGGESTED TO MIGRATE TO OTHER MORE MODERN AND BETTER MAINTAINED PLUGINS.

IF YOU ARE STARTING A NEW BLOG, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO SEARCH FOR OTHER PLUGINS IN ORDER TO AVOID THE INEVITABLE FUTURE MIGRATION.

REGARDING EXISTING USERS, AT THE TIME OF WRITING, THERE ARE NO MAJOR BUGS. PROVIDED THAT THE WORDPRESS API DOES NOT CHANGE SOON, YOU HAVE THE TIME TO EXPERIMENT WITH OTHER PLUGINS AND PLAN YOUR MIGRATION.

SUPPORT VOLUNTEERS IN THE WORDPRESS FORUMS SHOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLUGIN TO NEW USERS.

Notice about the development status

The current feature set of this plugin is already beyond what I need or use, so further development, enhancement and testing of it is no longer in my priorities. Moreover, since the release of version 2.11.0, I do not provide any support for it and I no longer recommend using it in production. Due to lack of free time, there are no plans to do any more work on it. If you continue using this plugin in production, you are on your own.

Furthermore, please consider that Add-Meta-Tags was started many years ago. In many cases it does its job in an inefficient way and its design and implementation should now be considered outdated. Addressing the implementation flaws would require rewriting the plugin almost from scratch, which is out of the question, since there are already many excellent and modern plugins in the WordPress Plugin Repository that are actively maintained and fully supported.

So, I highly recommend to start planning your migration to other plugins as soon as possible. Regarding data migration, you can find specific information about how Add-Meta-Tags stores its data and general information about how you could migrate that data to other plugins in the Other Notes section.

Last, but not least, there are several strong indications that during the last months my plugins have been the target of spammers. Be cautious! I strongly suggest that you completely avoid any forks of this plugin or any third party downloads. Instead, I strongly encourage you to migrate to other plugins.

Also, please note that Add-Meta-Tags is not for sale and that I'm not interested in any idea about it.

Finally, please note that the available documentation on the wiki may contain outdated information in some parts about the customization of the plugin. Since the plugin is now deprecated, there are no plans to work on the documentation. Again, I highly recommend starting your experimentation with other more modern plugins.
