This patch allows you to edit the HTML meta tags for description and keywords from the Administration > Settings
page. By default it will use 'redMine' for description and 'issue,bug,tracker' for keywords. This patch also updates
all the language files to have the symbols for setting_meta_description and setting_meta_keywords. I only have translations
for English though.

I also added the items to the user documentation (for English only). Someone else will have to convert the xml
to documentation, because I can't get docbook to work.

Doh. I'm on a roll of messing up things right now. Someone
should fix it so you don't have to use that silly check box
to attach files.

Nice idea, another thing that makes my own redmine not updateable anymore. ;)

  • Status changed from New to Closed

I guess it could easily be implemented in a plugin (you just have to override layout file), so I close this issue and encourage interested persons to try implementing such a plugin.

I believe it should not be plugin! I believe Redmine should use more useful meta description (not sure about keywords)! For example:
  • For project page it should use short project description by default;
  • For news it should use several first sentences;
  • For Wiki it should use first sentences too;
  • etc.

Well... Seems like I'm the interested person (needed META for Facebook Like plugin): :)
Anyway I still believe this should be in core!
