Support » Fixing WordPress » Metatags

  • My <title> tag is different on each ‘single’ as i like it. I want the same thing for the description tag. So it shows a (brief) description of the post.

    Is there any way to achieve this? Perhaps something with exerpt in the meta-description?

    I asked this serveral times already but haven’t received an answer so far.

  • I think the excerpt must be within the loop. Though you probably can use some global for it.

    Yes the excerpt has to be in the loop. On the other hand, the title tag works as well.

    you can do a loop in the title tag..

    Yes it can be done there is a plugin for meta tags for wordpress check that out too while ur at it.

    Thanks for the hint. But it should be possible without a plugin as well i guess. Using a plugin is not very usefull for us because we write like 25 new articles per day. With the plugins you have to write your own keys for everypage.

    <?php $xcrpt = get_the_excerpt(); echo $xcrpt; ?>

    This outputs the excerpt. But I don’t think that this is the right way to do this as it should probably be in the loop. It works outside it though, but I don’t have enough knowledge of the WP internals to understand it all.

    Trust me, it makes it easier than you think…

    Awesome plugin.

    I installed the plugin but nothing seems to happen. I read the instructions clearly but perhaps iam missing something.

    This is what i have now

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    if(is_home()) {
    // bloginfo('tagline');
    echo 'My own title tag';
    } else {
    wp_title(""); echo ' - My site name';
    <META NAME="description" CONTENT="my description">
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="my keys">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen, projection" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" title="RSS .92" href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    <?php /*comments_popup_script(520, 550);*/ ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    <link href="nieuws.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="java.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script language="Javascript" type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
