While working on an SEO for WordPress course recently, I was looking for a way to manually add meta descriptions to a theme from the functions.php file.
After playing around a bit, I came up with this solution:
This of course raises the bigger question of why would you want to do this instead of using a plugins like SEO by Yoast or All in One SEO. I don’t think that you actually would :p I just wanted to demonstrate how to do it.
If you have a more elegant solution, please suggest away!
