Automatically add <link>, <meta> description and <meta> keywords to your HTML on a per-post (or page) basis.

  1. Upload the headmeta folder and its contents to your wp-contents/plugins directory.
  2. Activate in the Plugins menu.
  3. Add Custom Fields to your posts.

To use this plugin, you add key/value pairs in the Custom Fields section when you create or edit a post or page. If you enter description or


as the name of the key, HeadMeta will automatically generate an appropriate <meta> "description" or "keywords" tag in the head of your HTML.

If you need to create arbitrary <link> or <meta> tags, you can use "head_link" and "head_meta" as the key. Whatever you enter as the value for that custom field will be plugged into the generated <link> or <meta> tag. For example, if you added the following keys and values:

KEY: head_link VALUE: rel="seealso" href="http://example.com/movies/"

KEY: head_meta VALUE: name="keywords" content="entertainment,movies"

This would generate two tags in the of the page when someone visited the permalink for the post:

<link rel="seealso" href="http://example.com/movies/" /> <meta name="keywords" content="entertainment,movies" />
