Help for Meta Generator:

General Notes:

  • The result of using this extension is a meta tag, so for seeing it you must check the head code.

Here you'll find help about the meta tags included in the Meta Generator.

Abstract: Same as Description but less used.
<meta name="Abstract" content="Foo great bar">
Author: Typically the unqualified author's name.
<meta name="author" content="Foo">
Cache Control:

Specifies the action of cache agents. Possible values:

  • Public - may be cached in public shared caches
  • Private - may only be cached in private cache
  • no-cache - may not be cached
  • no-store - may be cached but not archived
Note that browser action is undefined using these headers as META tags.
<meta name="cache-control" content="Public">
Charset: The HTTP content type may be extended to give the character set. As an HTTP/1.0 header, this unfortunately breaks older browsers. As a META tag, it causes Netscape Navigator to load the appropriate charset before displaying the page. Default charset is ISO-8859-1.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=BIG5">
Copyright: Typically an unqualified copyright statement.
<meta name="copyright" content="Dreamwarrior 2000">
Description: A short, plain language description of the document. Used by search engines to describe your document. Very important.
<meta name="description" content="Foo great bar">
Language and Dialect: May be used to declare the natural language of the document. May be used by robots to categorize by language. The corresponding Accept-Language header (sent by a browser) causes a server to select an appropriate natural language document. A dialect needs a language first, but a language doesn't need a dialect in the meta tag.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="EN-UK">
Doc. Class:  
Doc. Rights:  
Doc. State:  
Doc. Type:  
Expires: The date and time after which the document should be considered expired. Controls cacheing in HTTP/1.0. In Netscape Navigator, a request for a document whose expires time has passed will generate a new network request (possibly with If-Modified-Since). An illegal Expires date, e.g. "0", is interpreted as "now". Setting Expires to 0 may thus be used to force a modification check at each visit. Dates must be given in RFC850 format, in GMT.
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Fri, 01 Jan 2002 07:20:55 GMT">
Generator: Typically the name and version number of a publishing tool used to create the page. Not important.
<meta name="generator" content="Macromedia Dreamweaver">
Keywords: Keywords used by search engines to index your document in addition to words from the title and document body. Typically used for synonyms and alternates of title words. Separated by comas. Very important.
<meta name="keywords" content="dreamweaver, programming,dhtml">
Owner: Typically the owner of the site.
<meta name="owner" content="Dreamwarrior">

<meta name="pragma" content="no-cache">
Rating: Simple content rating.
<meta name="document-rating" content="General">
Refresh after: Specifies a delay in seconds before the browser automatically reloads the document. Optionally, specifies an alternative URL to load.
