    I have Parallels Desktop and Web Presence Builder included as part of my hosting contract. It's allowed me to quickly knock up a fairly decent site, but I have one problem with it that makes even the most minor edit a real chore

    Whenever I publish, the following lines

    <meta name="description" content="....
    <meta name="keywords" content=".....

    These two lines have to be reedited manually for 3/4 of the pages because whenever I publish, despite the correct values being specified in the settings page, revert to some kind of weird default value completely different to the ones I have set.

    So, is there some kind of default master template or something I can manually edit, or some other setting I can tweak to make each page take on the description and keywords I have set?

    Hmm, yeah, thanks a lot for that

    I guess increasing your post count is really important to you huh?

    Solved

    OK, so I found the problem, I'll post it here for anyone else who needs it

    It's not immediately obvious, but the meta data settings boxes in "Settings" only applies to new pages you create AFTER you change these settings

    You need to open the "Pages" tab and click "Edit description and keywords" to change the data on any pages you've already created. It's a ball-ache but that seems to work

    Hi Alec.


    You are correct, that's the way things work right now. In 11.5 we'll be changing this behavior so that if you change global metadata under Settings and don't customize specific page metadata, changes on Settings will affect all pages with non-customized metadata.
