Hi Bill,

In your case, it would be RedNoir.html.

It's 2.37 in the afternoon where I am. Smiley

If you're using more than one template, then yes - all of the yourtemplate.html files.

Re: Meta Tags.
Good afternoon...lol
I looked at the Red Noir template.index and couldn't find anything about meta data. Am I missing something here?
Thanks again.

Re: Meta Tags.
I created a language file for my board.

inside that language file i put all the header, metatags, footers, fill stuff etc.

In each html template i call that stuff via a yabb tag for them so all i need to do is {yabb meta} {yabb footer} and the like.

build the main html file then just copy and paste that into the various html templates of that style and it  is the same in each but the css files control the coloring.

If you need to change anything, all you need to hit is the language file and it gets done in all of the templates.

Re: Meta Tags.
There seems to be a problem with attachments on this forum, so I can't download it.

Where are you getting "template.index" from?

There's actually only one meta tag in YaBB by default, so I was assuming you wanted to add some. You can do it by going to Admin Center => Forum Layout => Templates and selecting RedNoir/RedNoir.html from the select box.

Re: Meta Tags.
I'm not aware of a "template.index" file. Huh

Anyway, the file you need is cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/RedNoir/RedNoir.html, but it looks like you've found it now.

Just add your own meta tags underneath the meta tag already there and save the file...

If I've understood you right and you just want the above as keywords, then you would just add this:

Code (HTML)Select All
<meta name="keywords" content="Jeff Gordon, NASCAR, Jeff Gordon Pictures" />
