Description meta tag in Pages

Go to solution Solved by Sonya*,

Recommended Posts


With article in pages, the platform automatically creates the description meta tags based on the article contents. In our databases, we have a custom field with a summary that could be better used as description. Is there a way for us to use that field instead of the default behavior? If not, that is a suggestion that I leave for a future version. Ditto for the keywords fields.

Note: I know that I could adjust this manually using the SEO editor. however we have thousands of articles, using this editor is simply insane.

There is a workaround, if you would like to edit display record template. Add this on top of the template:

{{\IPS\Output::i()->metaTags['description'] = $record->customFieldDisplayByKey('YOUR_CUSTOM_FIELD', 'listing');}}
{{\IPS\Output::i()->metaTags['og:description'] = $record->customFieldDisplayByKey('YOUR_CUSTOM_FIELD', 'listing');}}

This would overwrite the default description meta tag with the value of your custom summary field.
