  • [Blog] How to edit blog post description meta tag

    I see that blog posts within vBulletin Suite 4 get their meta descriptions generated automatically by inserting the title plus the user name of the poster. That does not make sense, plus Google marks those pages as with "Short meta descriptions" in HTML suggestions within Google Webmaster Tools.

    Is there a way to edit this?

    Since we already have fields for title and meta tags which become meta keywords, what's the deal for not having meta description field?

    Thanks

      Bump again.

      If I go to the database in phpMyAdmin, and I search for the exact phrase of this automatically created description, nothing comes up. That tells me this is programmatically created. Now, is there any field where I could add more text so this is reflected in the description meta tag, or this comes directly from the "title+user name of creator" which obviously I don't want to change?

      Thanks

        Well, to conclude this as there was no replies other then of myself, I did create a new feature request:
        http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBB-976

        I hope I picked the right way of doing it.

        Thanks

              thanks I believe there already is one: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBB-976?

              Is there no way for me to call the blog description into the meta data like I can with forums?

                That issue won't affect the blog in vBulletin 4.x. A new issue in the VBIV project would be needed.

                  Thanks, http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBB-980?

                  How does that work? Is there a guarantee it will be improved soon?

                    There will be no guarantee, sorry. Our developers will have a look at every report and do their best. You will see when the status of the report has been changed.

                      I've been looking for a solution for this for quite some time. Can't believe there hasn't been more chatter about it.
