CityDesk Meta Tag
How can I remove the MetaTag which states the site was generated by CityDesk
Generate the site edit the resulting pages and remove the tag.
There is an easier way...rename the template extension(s) to something other than .html (e.g. ".cfm" -> in Template -> Properties) and CD will not include those metatags. They will still be "HTML pages" and be rendered in the browser...careful to use this method with the index article, though.
Good point concerning .cfm and .asp as extensions and how your webserver might treat them...but to the browser, you can rename the extension ".donaldduck" - makes no difference as the extension doesn't really mean anything.
Ultimate point is: yes, while you can name a file anything you want and the browser won't care the browser isn't going to get that file cause the server cares and won't resolve the file.
So, if you really want to get rid of the meta tags, you can change your template extension to, say, "htmlx". Then you need to run a post publish script to convert all of your ".htmlx" files to ".html". Am I getting this right?
Joel, you'd also need to fix up all the links between pages in your site. That involves doing a search and replace on each html file, changing .htmlx to .html.
Just to be clear, I meant a search-n-replace *inside* each html file to fix up all the hrefs.
Darren, very good observation. That makes it quite a bit more work. Well, it seemed like a nice idea for a moment!
