Metatags via Keywords Export?

Q: How do I use CityDesk to generate metatags?

Re: Article Properties Info:

The Keywords section lets you provide a list of words, separated by spaces, that can be searched later for information about this article.

For example, if you are creating a business web site, you might want to use company stock ticker symbols as keywords so that it's easy to find all articles about a particular company later.

See Using Keywords Effectively.

If you're asking how to change an article's keywords property into a meta tag list of keywords, I'd just add this to the template inside the head section:

<META name="keywords" content="{$.keywords$}">

This is assuming I understood your question.

Works well with Atomz Search @ http://www.acctts.com


<head>
    <title>{$.headline$}</title>
<META name="description" content="{$.headline$}">
<META name="keywords" content="{$.keywords$}">
</head>

FYI - Search also found prior reply on this topic . . .
