This add-on allows you to manually set the meta-description of any thread. This is especially useful for forums:
  • Where posts contain images or display tags in the meta-description
  • Where the first post contains very few relevant keywords and therefore ranks poorly


  • Can set which usergroups have the ability to edit meta descriptions
  • Pop-up menu in "Thread Tools>Edit Meta description"
  • If no meta-description is set, it defaults to Xenforo Standard description
  • Will also set the Facebook "og:Metadescription" property to manually edited description
  • Manually edit the title tag of Forums
  • Have optimized titles for Forums different than the User Friendly forum names


First you must set which user groups have access. This permission can be found under "Forum Moderator Permissions":
