    Please don’t bump again, that’s not permitted here.

    Hello , im interested how to manually add description and meta tags for home page since my theme wont allow me to change it via all in one SEO or any other seo plugin .

    Get a new theme. 😉

    All of the SEO plugins insert meta tags via the head and all your theme needs is wp_head() in it. All of them should have that and if yours doesn’t then it’s very simple to add.

    You could edit your theme’s header.php file, but you really shouldn’t if you can avoid it.

    Or just get a new theme, that’s such a basic thing that it’s surprising that your theme doesn’t include that.

    Thanks for answer , im sorry i bumped but its really annoying 😛 .

    i checked and in header.php there is :

    <?php if (is_singular()){ wp_enqueue_script(‘comment-reply’); } ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    is that how it should look like . i can set Title but not the meta tags and description via All in one SEO .
    Can i insert my meta tags manually just like in html website or it needs to be done via plugin ?

    If nothing ill switch theme , but that one is the best i found so far.

    You could edit the header.php and manually insert the tags you want. But if you update that theme, you’ll lose those changes.

    For something like that it’s really easier to just use a plugin. Look in your for wp_head(). If that’s there already then you’d really benefit from one of the SEO plugins…

    I was hoping you’d have a theme that’s freely available, but that’s a commercial theme and we don’t have access to those. Nor want access to be honest, the support with the vendor is part of their business model and we don’t want to interfere with that.

    As that is a commercial theme, why not just ask them? What you want to do with meta tags is such a simple thing they can probably answer it quickly.
