Meta and OpenGraph tags#

The recommended way to add meta and open graph tags information to pages and other CMS objects is using feincms3-meta.

Installation and configuration#

Install the package:

pip install feincms3-meta

Make the page model inherit the mixin:

from feincms3.pages import AbstractPage
from feincms3_meta.models import MetaMixin

class Page(AbstractPage, MetaMixin, ...):

If you define fieldsets on a ModelAdmin subclass, you may want to use the helper MetaMixin.admin_fieldset(), or maybe not.

Add settings (optional, but recommended):

    "site_name": "My site",
    "title": "Default title",
    "description": (
        "The default description,"
        " maybe long."
    "image": "/static/app/logo.png",
    # "author": "...",
    "robots": "index,follow,noodp",

# Only for translations


The dictionary subclass returned by feincms3_meta.utils.meta_tags can either be used as a dictionary, or rendered directly (its __str__ method returns a HTML fragment):

from feincms3_meta.utils import meta_tags

# ...
return render(
        "page": page,
        "page_regions": ...,
        "meta_tags": meta_tags([page], request=request),

meta_tags also supports overriding or removing individual tags using keyword arguments. Falsy values are discarded, None causes the complete removal of the tag from the dictionary.

If you want to inherit meta tags from ancestors (or from other objects) provide more than one object to the meta_tags function:

ancestors = list(page.ancestors())
tags = meta_tags(request=request).add(*ancestors).add(page)

Since you may also need the ancestors when using regions which inherit content from the page’s ancestors when they are empty it is recommended to put the meta tags generation into the page_context function described in Build your CMS. Note that inherit_from wants a reversed list of ancestors (from bottom to top) but meta_tags wants ancestors from top to bottom so that more specific values from lower in the page tree override their ancestors values:

def page_context(request, *, page):
    # page = page or page_for_app_request(request)
    ancestors = list(page.ancestors())
    return {
        "page": page,
        "page_regions": renderer.regions_from_item(
        "meta_tags": meta_tags(request=request).add(*ancestors).add(page),


If you want to further override meta tags e.g. in an application (see Introduction to apps) you may want to run the above function and reach into the context:

page = page_for_app_request(request)
context = page_context(request, page=page)

# Example: Article detail page
article = get_object_or_404(Article, ...)

return render(...)
