Profiles have no meta tags

Profiles on IPS have virtually no meta tags, at all.

This could be improved by adding a link to the users avatar and maybe a general description line like so,

        $description = "Explore {$this->member->name}'s " . \number_format( $this->member->member_posts ) . " posts on " . \IPS\Settings::i()->board_name;

        $newMeta = [
            'title'                 => $this->member->name,
            'description'           => $description,
            'og:title'              => $this->member->name,
            'og:description'        => $description,
            'twitter:description'   => $description,
            'og:image'              => $this->member->photo,
            'profile:username'      => $this->member->name,
            'og:url'                => $this->member->url()

        \IPS\Output::i()->metaTags = array_merge( \IPS\Output::i()->metaTags, $newMeta );

Otherwise links to profiles contain no description or anything aside the default og:image if you have one set in the settings.

I raised the suggestion internally already.

I will say that search engines are increasingly leaning on json+ld over meta tags and we do populate those, but this suggestion remains open in the mean time nevertheless.


Will profiles ever have standard basic meta tags?
