Edit Meta Data

Besides the visible contents of a page, several meta data are available. Meta data describe the page and configure general page settings. Depending on project implementation, page object, ect., the fields to be maintained may vary. This is why in the following the fields of standard pages of the BASE project base are explained.

Page editing - Metadata mask 
Page editing - Metadata mask

The mask for editing meta data is accessible via the directory "Meta data" in the upper bar. When clicking again on the register "Meta data", the metadata mask will close and show the page editor view in the register "Draft".

'Structure editor':

This checkbox ist activated by default.
Clicking on the check box deactivates the structure editor. Thus no more structure editor symbols for individual structural elements and no more "Add element" buttons are displayed (see Structure editor). Options like, for example, or the multilingual container, contents container, etc. are also hidden in this way.


The page title is used at several places and defined as a compulsory field. It appears in the title bar of the browser, as name of a bookmark, in the button of the Windows task bar, and as a clickable title in the search results of search engines.
If the page shows up in automatic overview lists, the title ist mostly used as header of the list line. Its wording should be short and informative.


The description of the page is used by search engines to display the teaser text in the search results.
If the page shows up in automatic overview lists, the description is mostly used as teaster text in the list line.


Keywords are used for the Weblication® Full-text search as well as for optimisation for search engines. Several words are separated by commas.


This setting determines whether the page should appear in the Weblication® Full-text search and in search engines. 

'Activate click analysis':

Activates or deactivates the Click analysis for the page.

'Alternative page(s)':

For terminals with small monitor width (e.g. 480 pixels max.), an alternative page can be specified which is displayed.
For this function, it is required to install the corresponding query in the centralised control file (pre.php) and to define mediaquery information in design.css.

'Original URL':

To inform search engines about the original resource of a page,  an original URL can be selected for the page. In this way, a so-called canonical link is placed in the source text auf the page output (see also Wikipedia article "Canonical Link").

'Representation of the page (Layout)':

The choices for the representation of the page are used to activate different layout options and/or representation options for the page. This setting depends on project implementation.

'Preview image':

An individual preview image can be selected for each page. This image is displayed as a thumbnail if the page is shown on a list page with activated preview imgae.
Through the selection arrow to the field "Image section" a section of the linked image can be chosen to select only this section for displaying the image.
By clicking the delete button, an already defined image section can be deactivated/deleted.

'Active navigation item':

If a page is linked to the navigation, the active navigation status is automatically determined by Weblication®. If this automatically set status is to be changed or the page is not linked to the navigation, here a navigation item can be selected which is marked as active when displaying the page.


A page can be allocated to one or more categories.
Categories are mainly used for pages that show up in list pages. Lists can use categories as a filter criterion.


Please note

Metadata sets can be defined as compulsory fields. If a field defined as compulsory field is not filled in, the page cannot be saved; in addition, the metadata mask is automatically folded out each time the page is loaded again.
