FS#2126 - dynamic meta description (was: Change page title)


When i put a link in Discord for example, it detects “Flyspray, a Bug Tracking System written in PHP.” as title. How to change it ?

Edit by peterdd: adapted task title/summary to the root of the problem.

Do you mean this software?

The title is shown correct as

FS#11 - Invite

But for more info Discord seems to show below the content of the meta description.

The meta description is currently just hardcoded text:


<meta name="description" content="Flyspray, a Bug Tracking System written in PHP." />

But what is appropriate to put into a dynamic generated meta-description tag? This question is not yet answered. Several solutions in my mind, but a solution should respect also the flyspray permissions.

You can temporarly modify the template like this:

<meta name="description" content="" />

Keywords: meta tags, (maybe ?), SEO, search engine friendly structure

The screenshot in this comment shows similiar behavior when trying to link a flyspray task as message on facebook. The automatic page grabbing done by facebook shows currently content of 'title-tag' and 'meta description'-tag.
