I have a theme that uses several template files like page.html.twig, page--title.html.twig, etc.

I installed Metatag to make my website more understandable when sharing links to it via LinkedIn. However, after installing the Metatag module, my tags in all pages except admin are blank. I also tried to specify the title tag's content within Metatag as [current-page:title] | [site:name], but the title tag is still empty

I know this is a common issue. I have found this online

When using custom page template files, e.g., page--front.tpl.php, it is important to ensure that the following code is present in the template file: <?php render($page['content']); ?> or <?php render($page['content']['metatags']); ?>. Without one of these being present the meta tags will not be displayed.

However, that looks like an advice for Drupal 7 only - and I don't know how to do this in a TWIG file used by Drupal 8. Any advice would be appreciated.

EDIT: My TWIG files are as follows:

  • can you share your page.html.twig and html.html.twig source codes? – Yusef Mar 28 '17 at 8:02
  • Thanks, zhilevan. I edited the question and added the code. – Ondrej Mar 28 '17 at 8:10
  • Ping :) I'll be grateful for any advice on this. – Ondrej Mar 29 '17 at 13:35
  • your files seems Ok, I should test it by myself, do you develop your theme based on specified theme like boostrap theme or zen or omega? I mean what is your base and starter theme? – Yusef Mar 29 '17 at 19:24
  • I have developed it from scratch few years back. However, I don't think the theme would be a problem - as I wrote above, I read online that this is a common issue related to the Metatag module and that one has to call the methods above - but that's PHP, so it would be usable in D7 .tpl files, not in TWIG in D8 - and that's the question, I think: how to call this in a D8 TWIG template. – Ondrej Mar 30 '17 at 5:48
