The Section Meta Info Navigation Object allows you to output the page or Section metadata without the surrounding meta tags. This provides more flexibility than using Metadata T4 Tags.  For example, this could be used to output the last modified date of a page anywhere on it or to output a page description as the first paragraph on the page.

How to Create a Section Meta Info Object

To create this object, go to Assets > Navigation and click Create New Navigation and select Section Meta Info.

After completing the standard options used for all types of Navigation Objects, fill in each of the following, where relevant:

Metadata type Select from the drop-down list. This list of metadata is the list of configured section meta data and special mappings.
Date format If outputting the date created or date last modified, enter the date format e.g., dd.MM.yyyy hh:mm:ss.
For more information about date formatting, refer to the T4 tags page.
Before HTML Enter the HTML code to output before the meta value
After HTML Enter the HTML code to output after the meta value

Review your entries and selections, if you are satisfied with your entries, click Next to generate the object.

Once generated, highlight the T4 Tag Embed Code, copy to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and paste into a Page Layout or Content Layout.
