Does anyone know how to solve the problem of duplicate meta descriptions appearing when a category has multiple pages?

For example:

  • Category: Telephones
  • Pages: 5 pages

All 5 pages end up with the same meta description, titles and keywords. Only the content is changeable?

    All such information is part of the template and not part of crafts own setup – j00lz Aug 26 '15 at 3:33

    Ah ok, so we would need to look at modifying the theme, rather than blaming it on the Craft CMS platform itself? – tiger2015 Aug 26 '15 at 15:35

    Craft doesn't include, advocate, or have a default method for displaying metadata of any kind - that's up to whoever builds out the templates. – Nick Benson Aug 26 '15 at 15:46

    Craft doesn't have 'themes' it has templates. If you look in your <head> you can see where the information is coming from – j00lz Aug 27 '15 at 0:01

I would add custom fields to your category group, for META Descriptions. This would allow you to display meta data when on a 'category home page'.

Then on a single entry page, the entry-type custom fields for meta data would be used.

See this example/answer: How do I define an entry's META description?
