The description is missing in the head section of the page.

    HI all,

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to add a description (meta tag) to my home page. Bing Webmaster tools SEO Analyzer says, “The description is missing in the head section of the page.”

    I tried adding this to the Graphene advanced option allowing me to place code in the header.

    <?php if (  (is_home()) || (is_front_page())  ) { ?>
    <meta name="description" content="Health News and Reviews" />
    <?php } ?>

    I still get the same error from Bing SEO Analyzer. Is the code correct?

    Thanks!

    You’re not saying what is supposed to happen if that if statement is true. You need an echo statement. Try:

    <?php if ( ( is_home() ) || ( is_front_page() ) ) {
    echo '<meta name="description" content="Health News and Reviews" />';
    } ?>

    Please put code in between backtick (

    Code:
    `

    ) characters. It’s usually located above the Tab key on your keyboard.

    I’ve fixed it for you in your post, but your original code may have been mangled by the parser. I think I have it correct, though.
