Template Usage

Depending on your configuration, the general idea is to replace all header content relating to metadata with $Metadata() just below the opening <head> tag and $BaseHref() function, e.g.:

<% base_tag %>
<!-- further includes ~ viewport, etc. -->
<!-- however, really don't include CSS & JS here ~ do it in the *_Controller of this class -->

This will output something along the lines of:

<!-- SEO -->
<!-- Metadata -->
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
<link rel="canonical" href="" />
<title>Your Site Name | Home - your tagline here</title>
<meta name="description" content="Welcome to SilverStripe! This is the default home page. You can edit this page by opening the CMS. You can now access the developer documentation, or begin the tutorials." />
<!-- Facebook Insights -->
<meta property="fb:app_id" content="FacebookAppID123" />
<meta property="fb:admins" content="AuthorFacebookProfileID123" />
<!-- END SEO -->
