This weekend, I’ve dedicated to resurrecting a few more plugins which were withering away without updates between 5-7 years!Read More
I’ve just released a new update for Meta Tag Manager, a complete rewrite and bump up to version 2.0.
This was my first ever plugin to be submitted to the WordPress repository over 7 years ago! Back in the day, there weren’t any (or none I found) plugins that would allow you to add meta tags to your site.
