Metadata Server Control Does Not Return Expected Tags

  • Updated

Some customers have incorrectly configured the Metadata Server Control and will not see expected tags returned. This article will describe the steps needed to avoid these configuration missteps. 

If the content is a Pagelayout content item then use the pageid as the parameter as seen below when being dynamic.

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
<CMS:MetaData ID="MetaData1" runat="server" DynamicParameter="pageid" />
<form id="form1" runat="server">

The most important thing is the type for the metadata definition. It needs to be of type Meta Tag.
