The MetaMaster extension is a simple extension that allows adding HTML <meta> tags using a parser function. It supports any text as the name and description.

Installation[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called MetaMaster in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'MetaMaster' );
    
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Usage[edit]

{{#metamaster:name|content}}

Where name represents the name attribute of the <meta> tag and content represents the content attribute. There can be multiple tags per page.

Example[edit]

{{#metamaster:date|2002-04-04}}

This results in the following tag being added to the HTML head section:

<meta name="date" content="2002-04-04" />

The extension can also be used to add the ever-desired meta description tag, such as in this example:

{{#metamaster:description|This is some text description.}}

Which results in:

<meta name="description" content="This is some text description." />
