curious how and if these have been applied in 1.6 (meta, description, keywords)[Answered] | Forum

this last year i came out with these changes


Random Meta description


Randon Meta keywords


Random title


While replacing my custom code changes i noticed that it does not appear that any of these have been applied to 1.6 as it was suggested they might be when i wrote those.

It is not a problem i know you only had time to do so much, but i noticed that you actually commented out the keyword section of the code in 1.6 and i am curious as to why? 

In 1.6 in core/application.php  it looks like this

      /* if ( $document->getKeywords() === null )
          $document->setKeywords($language->text('nav', 'page_default_keywords'));
          } */

Is there a particular reason is has been commented out, has the process been moved and improved. 

Please advise on the current standings of these three items...

As far as i can see so far, and i could be wrong. It does not appear that the keywords function is called anyone else that would perform this task.  I am just asking for the current status and the outlook of this is all.

Hello Dave, 

Yes, we decided not to use keywords. As we mostly aimed on Google, as it is most used search engine.  Google bots stop indexing keywords, now it indexes title and description only. Here's some articles on that matter:



You can find more info on Internet.
