I never had used the tabs in site view.
Beginning in Fusion 7, I had gone to layout properties, HTML and added all the meta tags there.
I just carried this through to NOF 9.
This is the first time I am doing a major re-design of the site in 11, so did not see what was happening.
This is what is showing in code view:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<TITLE> Title of Page will be generated by NetObjects Fusion. </TITLE>
<title>My page title</title>
<meta name="description" content="My description">
<meta name="keywords" content="keyword 1, keyword 2 keyword 3l">
<meta name="subject" content="product">
<META CONTENT="NetObjects Fusion 11 for Windows" NAME="Generator">
<META CONTENT="NetObjects Fusion MX for Windows" NAME="Generator">
<!-- NetObjects Fusion Generated HEAD HTML-->
<BODY NetObjects Fusion Generated BODY Parameters
Everything between </TITLE> and </HEAD> is the code I would copy and paste into each page using properties, HTML.
I think at the very least I need to remove my title tag.
Or do you think I should redo all my meta tags (64 pages worth)?
In the Beginning..... early version of Fusion had a place in Site Settings where a site wide setting for adding a Meta Description and keywords existed. If you wanted page specific meta tags, you had to add them in the Layout properties HTML between the head tags.
Later, page meta tags (with inheritance possibilities) were added in Page properties in Site View. That's where things stand today.
Somewhere in between, there was a transitional period in a couple of versions of Fusion, where the Site Settings meta tags were still available, but deprecated.
When the Site Settings meta tags were finally eliminated (Fusion 8 perhaps), life was good... unless you moved a site containing manually added meta tags into the new release that didn't support the site settings tags any more. What would happen is the meta tags could become permanently embedded into Code View and be in the generated HTML code along with the meta tags you wanted to add in Site View.
When this "bug" was discovered, we told users to remove all manual meta tags and those in Site Settings prior to exporting as a template to make a site in the new Fusion release.
At his point, if you can remove any manually added tags, do so. Add them in Site View in page properties.
The title tag is generated automatically by Fusion using the title you type into page properties in Site View.
If you have tags like generated by MX in your Code View and they're in the gray (un-editable) region, you may have to recreate your site from scratch in 11 to get rid of the embedded tags.
