Hi All,

ss 3.1

I have this <meta name="keywords" content="$MetaKeywords" /> in my header and is not displaying any data.

    <meta name="description" content="$MetaDescription" />

I do have data in the meta keywords field.

Hi vxd,

In case you're still waiting for an answer. I've just come across the same issue, but got around it by typing the actual "html syntax" for "Tags" under "Metadata" and that works for me now. I did try $MetaKeywords without avail.

Thanks for the response. I never actually figured this one out.

but got around it by typing the actual "html syntax" for "Tags" under "Metadata"

Do you have an example of this. Not sure what you mean.
