This Contao module enables you to set custom meta description for news items.
- Copy the folder /system/modules/news_metadescription and all it's contents into contao_root/system/modules/
- Log in to the contao backend
- Clean the internal caches (System -> maintenance -> Purge data -> Purge the internal cache)
- Update database (System -> Extension manager -> Update database)
When editing a news item in the backend, you are now able to set a custom meta description. If there’s no custom meta description set, Contao will generate the meta description in the usual way.
Feel free to use this module in your own projects. Please tell us your improvements and/or make a pull request.
