 +====== MetaTags Plugin for glFusion ======
 +Version: 1.0.4
 +
 +===== OVERVIEW =====
 +
 +The Metatags plugin allows you to set
 +
 + <​meta name="​keywords"​ content="​some,​key,​words">​
 +
 +and
 +
 +  <meta name="​description"​ content="​Some description">​
 +
 +meta tags in HTML <​head>​ section according to the page content. Currently meta tags are supported in articles and staticpages.
 +
 +===== USAGE =====
 +
 +The Metatags plugin uses glFusion'​s autolink feature. If you have disabled it,
 +please enable the feature in Configuration UI (Miscellaneous - Miscellaneous -
 +Disable Autolinks).
 +
 +In an article or a staticpage, if you write [meta:key comma_separated_keywords]
 +as an autotag, this tag will be converted into
 +
 +  <meta name="​keywords"​ content="​comma_separated_keywords">​.
 +
 +For example, to have the following keywords shown in the header:
 +
 +  [meta:key glfusion,​cms,​content management system]
 +
 +Would produce:
 +
 +  <meta name="​keywords"​ content="​glfusion,​cms,​content management system">​.
 +
 +Likewise, if you write [meta:desc description of the current page], the tag
 +will be converted into <meta name="​description"​ content="​description of the
 +current page">​. In both cases, autotags themselves are not visible in the
 +content except for the editor(s).
 +
 +For example, to place a meta description in a story, use:
 +
 +  [meta:desc This is a description of this story]
 +
 +Would produce
 +
 +  <meta name="​description"​ content="​This is a description of this story">​
 +
 +<​note>​Your keywords and description MUST NOT contain a right square
 +bracket('​]'​).</​note>​
 +
 +===== CONFIGURATION =====
 +
 +Once you have installed the Metatags plugin, it works well without manual
 +configuration. However, if you would like to change the name of autotag
 +(default value is '​meta'​) or keys translated into meta tag keys (default
 +values are '​key'​ and '​desc'​),​ you can set up the plugin through
 +Configuration UI (http://​yoursite/​admin/​configuration.php).
 +
 +  * Autotag name: the name glFusion recognizes as an autotag (meta in theabove USAGE)
 +  * Replace: keys (the label left to an textarea) will be converted into meta tag keys (the string in an textarea). ​ For example:
 +
 +        tag use  => meta tag
 +        key      => keyword
 +        desc     => description
 +        au       => author
 +
 +      [meta:au Mark R. Evans] translates to:
 +      <meta name="​author"​ content="​Mark R. Evans">​
 +
 +  * Default keywords (comma separated): keywords used globally when no article or staticpage is displayed, e.g., at the site's homepage
 +  * Default description:​ description used globally when no article or staticpage is displayed, e.g., at the site's homepage
 +  * Execute PHP: When parsing static pages for the meta auto tag, should the metatags plugin execute embedded PHP?  The default, and recommended setting for this is false.
 +  * Hide Tags for authors - By default, the meta auto tag will display in the story or staticpage only for content authors. Setting this to true will hide them completely (only visible when editing).
 +
 +===== INSTALLATION =====

 +Simply upload the distribtuion using the glFusion plugin installer located in
 +the Plugin Administration page.

 +the distribution from the Plugin Administration page.
