I am adding meta tags with the pockets plugin. But i only want the pocket to att content on the home page.
Can this be done?

    Two ways off the top of my head: Hide the Pocket using CSS on all other pages but the homepage or add a custom Pocket to your homepage using Smarty (applies to 2.1 and not 2.0):

    {if InSection("CategoryList")}
        {pocket name="Homepage"}

    I usually use the "All Categories" section as my homepage which is why I used CategoryList in the conditional.

  • @Kasper - can you expand on this please. Where would the code as described go? What is Smarty?

    @demsley That would go in your themes default.master.tpl file.

    The easiest way to control where the pockets show is by giving them an id or a class . This way you can allow one and not the others depending on where you want it to show.The editor is not working for me atm so remove spaces between < > if you copy any of it.

    this is what you would add in the pockets panel where you add the content.
    < div class="PocketA" >your content< /div >
    then use css in the custom.css file where you don't want it to show, each body is a page
    body.Profile .PocketA,body.Vanilla.Categories .PocketA {
