how best to apply code from db to page
I was just wondering, what is the best form type to apply snippets of code through out my site. aka should I use a text box for both <meta name="description" and <meta name="keywords" or should i use the wysiwy
thanks for any input.
Meta tags should only contain plain text so use a text box for the meta description and another one for the keywords.

There's no one "right way" to do it, but when I often do is create a single-record section called "snippets" in the CMS and record all the common site elements there. And then I load that record on every page to output common header and footer info, etc.
That's one way you could do it. Alternatively, if you have a section such as "articles" you could add a meta description, and meta keywords field to that section so you could output different values with each record.
Hope that helps! Let me know any other questions.
