Chapter 11. Adding Meta Tags & Additional HTML
The advanced editor was added to ShutterBug's content window to accommodate
those users who have requested a place to add extra Meta tags and their own
additional HTML. If you don't know what Meta tags are, then the advanced edit window
is most likely something you will never need to access.
ShutterBug is a WYSIWYG web authoring tool (not a HTML authoring tool) and outputs
the correct HTML for all modern browsers on cross-platforms. We strongly recommend
not adding your own HTML unless you are experienced in HTML coding. If any of your
HTML is incorrect, this may result in rendering problems in different browsers. We do
not provide email support for problems encountered from incorrect HTML being added
to the output, but we can try to assist you at the XtraLean Support board - post your
issue or question in the ShutterBug forum and we'll try to help as quickly as we can.
To access the advanced editing options, click the Content tab to reveal the Content
window. Select Website from your navigation list. Click the Advanced button located at
the top right corner of the interface. The right side of the interface will open a pane
containing the fields to enter Meta tags and additional HTML.
Meta Tags: Meta tags allow you to specify a language for your site, as well as
description and keyword tags for search engines to search on. Note: Most modern
search engines no longer use Meta tags to determine content or search ranking, but
rather search by parsing through the actual [text] content on your web pages. Please
visit our support boards for more information on search engines.
Additional HTML: You can add your own <head> and <body> content. If you have an
external style sheet, you can add it into these areas of the HTML output, however we
do not provide support for this.
