How to extend atom to allow for meta keywords or tags?

Dec 19, 2009 at 7:48 PM

Hi, I was digging around the code today and was wondering if it is possible to add a "tags", or "keywords" element to the atom entry. I took a look at the Atom namespace and couldn't find any default elements to support this. A quick solution would be to add another property to the BlogEntryModel for this.

I also noticed that the summary field in the Admin/EditEntry page for blog posts wasn't hooked up to the blog views, so here's some code to add it to the view.


[BlogEntry.aspx]

<meta name="description" content="<%=Model.Entry.Summary %>" />

Atom does support tags using category schemes.  However, there is no universally accepted scheme for tags.  I was talking with Windows Live Writer team about choosing a scheme for tags so there is some standard.
