mac os10.4.

i've done a search, but didn't seem to find anyone asking this in this way...

i'd like to carry my iptc keywords from my jpegs as a meta tag keyword transfer automatically in an html transfer. i've spent a little time digging into the templates, and would like to shortcut this searching if there's code for doing this already, and i haven't found it.

if not, would you point me to the places where i might hammer code into a template to make this work?

thanks very much.

cordially,
Larry Darnell

Just use the {keywords} variable in one of the text fields in your chosen Exporter template.  The keywords used in each photo will be exported into your HTML web pages.

Hi Kirk,
Thanks for your quick response.

Perhaps my question wasn't clear enough, or I didn't understand.

I'd like to be able to be able to insert the iptc keywords from my jpeg into here:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/strict.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
  <meta name="generator" content="Photo Mechanic (www.camerabits.com)">

-->    <meta name="description" content="Larry Darnell Original artwork, California landscape art, sierra nevada california art, prints, watercolors, photographs, cards, digital art, digital watercolors, west, california, mountains, rivers, snow, west coast, redwoods, sierra">

  <title>Title Tag for Search Engine</title>

This would need a meta wrapper in the head template, I presume.

thanks
Larry

I misunderstood you completely.  Unless you create your own template or use the HTML Template Exporter template which will process your html files produced by you (using either a text editor, or some HTML editor like DreamWeaver) then currently none of the templates offer the ability to set the meta tags in the head of the document.
