    wordpress seo plugin, it’s really packed with features and options so it might be a bit overwhelmig at first but stick with it and it’ll be your best friend.

    well, thanks for the encouragement but I still need to know how to do what I am seeking?

    i’m glad the encouragement is welcomed but the first three words of my original reply were the ones you needed to notice: wordpress SEO plugin. download it, install it, activate it, read the user guide and there you go…

    I am using SEO Ultimate click on plugins add new and search

    Oh sorry, I had installed and activated the “Alt text” plugin to try to help with adding alt info to my images in another thread and I had thought this was what you were referring to, ok, I will try the SEO plugin, thanks.

    Or, you could use post excerpt in meta descriptions, and enter a manual excerpt for every post. I do this because I don’t like messing with “heavyweight” SEO plugins.

    <meta name="description" content="<?php if ( is_single() OR is_page() ) { echo get_the_excerpt(); }
    else { echo 'Description for your homepage and other pages.'; } ?>" />
