Thanks again for your help Scott.
Yup I've tried using (:description text:) as seen in the The Markup
Master Index, but it does not produce the meta element that is needed
for spiders to include a specified page description when indexed.
Currently the only information Google is indexing is the page title
and some text from within the body of the page & if there is no text
in the page, text in the GroupFooter is used. (:description text:) is
being ignored completely however and my guess is that it is due to the
below missing code...
<META name="description" content="bla bla bla...">
It does not seem as if meta descriptions are really working with
I considered including the above meta element in my sites skin .tmpl
file but to the best of my knowledge, this is going to produce a site
wide effect where there is only one description for every page within
Still at a loss.
