The Dynamicweb file manager allows you to create metafields and add metatags to files. These values can then be used in frontend.

To create folder-specific metafields:

  • Click Metafields in the toolbar
  • Click Add new metafield - then specify:
    • An ID
    • label
    • An editor type, e.g. text or checkbox
  • Save

To create system-wide metafields go to Settings > Control Panel > File Manager and click Edit system metafields.

Once a metafield has been created you can add metatag values to a file:

  • Select one or more files
  • Click metatags in the toolbar or in a context menu
  • Fill in some values
  • Save

Metatag values can be shown & used in frontend via e.g. a file index.
