    Keyword and Meta Tags dynamic?
    Hi there, I have been playing with the trial version and it seems simple enough. The ony question I have at this time is if it's possible to create dynamic keywords and descriptions for each page? I have been able to create af index and detail templates, but haven't been able to get the meta tags to work with fields from my data source yet. Other than that it's been a decent start to learing this application.

    Thanks in advance for any replies for a solution to my question.

    Yes

    For what you want for the title - just put the WM tag for the product name. Be sure and include raw in this title tag on the detail template. [wm whatever raw]

    For the description put the WM tage for the description with raw in it just like the title tag.

    Code:
    <title>[wm whatever raw nolink]</title>
    <META name="description" content="[wm whatever raw nolink]"
    To generate keywords you need to have a keyword field in the feed that you are using.

    Does this answer your question?

    You are making your WM tags with it's tag maker aren't you?

    When you have weird characters in the feed it will change it to the english character.

    You should put raw in all of your WM tags.

    Example - the feed may have &quot; in it - which is actually "

    If you do not use the raw in the tag WM will print &quot; on the page instead of ".

    Does that answer your question?

    The "raw" attribute is an option for the WM-Field tag. Without that optional attribute, by default WebMerge will translate text into web-ready form, using character entities as per ISO-8959-1.

    For most textual content in a database this behavior is highly desirable, since it may contain things like quotes or a copyright symbol or other characters which browsers may not render correctly across platforms. Translating these into the appropriate ISO character entities helps them render more closely to how they appear in the database.

    However, if a field contains HTML already then this behavior would not be helpful, since it would convert characters like "<" into character entities, making the browser unable to treat them as HTML directives.

    So if your field contains data that's already web-ready, just add a "raw" attribute to your tag like this:

    [WM-Field: MyField raw]

    For more info on this an other optional attributes, see the WebMerge Help page on the WM-Field tag.
