I use the Nodewords module and in the Readme file it talks about ability to automatically create metatag from node content but I don't find how to do.

  1. Each content type should be configured to control whether certain meta tags should be automatically generated, e.g. the "description" tag can be automatically taken from the node teaser.

Do someone know? Do I need additional module?

Log into your Drupal 6 backend and go to sitename.com/admin/content/types

Edit content type you wish to set auto generation of meta tags.

In this example I am editing Basic Page so I hit edit and ended up at


Select "Meta tags settings" and on that page you can set various meta tag generation options.

One you probably want to set is:

  • Generate meta tag content when the meta tag content is empty (default)


  • Generate meta tags content from the node teaser (default)

Both of these are default so they should be working out of the box.

  • great,thanks for explanation, do i wait for cache refreshing after modifying settings ? because actually no changes on a node type item example..

  • Depends on what kind of cache you have, if you have Boost or Varnish you will have to clear those out. You can always go to sitename.com/admin/settings/performance and clear Drupal cache from there.
