    4. Any Addons installed: No
    5. Does the issue occur in a default style?: Yes
    6. Error message on the screen': HTML Meta Description (meta name="description" content="xxxx") is overwrited on all topics under a determinated category after editing one topic metadescription
    7. Browser and Browser version used: Firefox 26 on Mac
    8. A list of steps that can be used to recreate the issue: enter as an administrator to a topic, turn "edit site" on, click on "Edit Page", click on "Save Page", edit "Meta Description", click on "Ok", click on "Save Page"... now all post under that channel (forum category) has the same Meta description as the one post that just edited


    All this post has now the same metadescripcion (very bad for SEO).

    New topics posted on the category (after editing) has it unique metadescription as it should be. Hundreds has duplicate metadescriptions, how can i solve this?

      Sebastiano Vassellatti: Every topic uses the same page template, so if you make changes to that page template (via site builder's Edit Page functionality) the change will apply to all topics. In order for a change to be specific to a single topic, you must select "Overwrite Template" = No when saving the page. That will create a new page template used by that topic only.
