WP-Colophon

Description

Use the WEB_AUTHOR meta tag to create your website credits. Say no to SEO Tramp Stamps!

Credits

In my quest to find a dead simple solution, I came across two other meta tag generators. This plugin takes the best of both plugins mentioned below and makes a dead simple plugin where web developers and designers can leave their company name / authorship info in the WEB_AUTHOR meta tag.

Head Meta Data – Head Meta Data adds a complete set of tags to the section of all posts & pages. – https://wordpress.org/plugins/head-meta-data/

Simple Meta Tags – Allows you to set global meta tags and customize on each individual page/post. – https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-meta-tags/

Installation

  1. Upload wp-colophon.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit the “WP-Colophon” settings page for more information.
