    Hi Joost,

    Unlike keywords and the canonical url the description meta tag only shows up on the first category page. From page 2 onwards the description tag is missing. I´m using version 0.3.5

    That's by design, as otherwise you'll get issues with duplicate meta tags in Google Webmaster Tools. You have the option to noindex, follow the subpages as well now, which I think is even better.

    thanks for getting back to me.

    Yep. Basically you´re right. I just thought it would make a difference by adding %%pagenumber%% at the end of the meta description (and title). It wouldn´t still trigger a duplicate warning, or would it?
