Hello, new user here. I am new to vp-asp and i must say it is the best cart i havr come accross, so thanks for that!! Anyhow, I want to add manual meta tags to my default.asp (or any of the includes) But as soon as I touch any of the asp code the entire page reformats itself. Can anyone shed some light on this topic? I tried some meta tag checkers and the only part that passes the meta tests is the title. I think I am missing something! Help please! I have my new site ready to replace my current production site except for this minor issue!

Thanks in advance!
Ryan

I have tried everything on this article. if i touch ANY code in shoppage_header.htm my whole site shifts everything ou of wack. any other suggestions?

These lines below are already in the shoppage_header.htm file: I want to manually add them i dont want dynamic keywords.
Version 6.00 Additional Features

VP-ASP 6.00 has a great new feature that allows you to have dynamic description and keywords meta tags added to your product pages.

Just add the lines below to your shoppage_header.htm file.

Description:

meta name="description" content="%shopdynamictitle "description"%>">


Keywords:

meta name="keywords" content="%shopdynamictitle "keywords"%>">

Ahh, apologies but i think I see what has happened. To ensure the display is correct we have had to change the opening html tag on all code to an image "<" as having it as html was throwing out the formatting of the pages.

Please try:

<title><%shopdynamictitle "title"%>/title>
<meta name="description" content="<%shopdynamictitle "description"%>">
<meta name="keywords" content="<%shopdynamictitle "keywords"%>">

We will update the help notes to let people know not to copy directly from the page.

Let us know if this doesn't help.

Thank you
Cam

here is the code to my shoppage_header.htm page. This config results in no keywords on the meta tests. I just downloaded the software a few days ago and the config below is the default code included with the latest release.

PS thanks for the fast replies!!

To display your own keywords change the keyword reference to:

<meta name="keywords" content="Enter your keywords here">

The keywords will only display in the extended product pages as htey are retrieved from the keywords field.

Thank you
