Out of the box Textpattern does not provide the meta “description” tag for each article. Although there’s a keywords field available for each article under the “Advanced Options” link on the “write” page, the keywords tag is not included in the default template.
I wanted to implement custom meta tags such as description and keywords on an individual article basis, so I decided to do some research. It was definitely worth the while.
The information put forward by the Textpattern community was definitely sufficient enough for even a novice like me to implement.
Here’s a summary of the many informative articles and discussions which I found on the subject.
