It’s known to almost every designer that Dreamweaver acts as a great application for making the process of inserting hidden tags in the HTML document. The process had always been very difficult without the availability of the tool. Not every person is well versed with the codes so that they could insert the code themselves. To facilitate this need and make the process automated this tool acts a great option for the users. The only thing the user needs to do is know the place to look and the way they need it to be displayed. The rest of the process gets carried out with this handy software. Now the question which might arise is how to add Meta data to a Dreamweaver page? Well, the answer for this has been illustrated below:
Step 1: The initial step to start using the tool for adding Meta data is to click on the Insert menu from the main screen of the software. This will list down a sub menu where one would require scrolling down to the option “HTML”. Clicking on this option would open another submenu where one needs to select “Head Tags”. Consequently the last sub menu appears where the user would need to select the option “Meta.”
Step 2: Performing the above steps opens up a new small window. This window reads “keywords” where the user needs to paste or type in the respective keywords required for the Meta Heads. Click on Ok to continue further.
Step 3: Again a new window appears asking the “Description” where the user would need to type in the description of the HTML document. Click on Ok and proceed.
Step 4: The next window that appears asks for “links to external documents”. Here the user needs to fill up the respective fields and click Ok when done.
Step 5: The next window that appears would ask for “Refresh” options. One may add whether the document would go to a URL when refreshed or gets refreshed itself.
Step 6: Now comes the main window where it asks to insert the “Meta Content”. Here the attribute, value and the content needs to be inserted. Clicking on Ok from here will move to the last step.
Step 7: Last step would be to view the head count. To do this, the user would need to click on view from the menu which would display a drop down. Here the user would be required to select the “Head Content” option.
The above steps give a simple tutorial to learn how to add Meta data to a Dreamweaver Page. The steps are simple but can be real effective in place of manual insertion of codes within an HTML document.
