For any page created this way, you may add:

  • custom "title" tag instead generated by system;
  • site name may be added or removed for page title using custom divider;
  • "keywords" (optionally), "descriptions" and "robots" meta tags;
  • some of Open Graph Protocol meta tags, such as "og:type", "og:title",
    "og:description", "og:site_name" and "og:image";
  • some of Twitter Cards meta tags such as "twitter:card", "twitter:site"
    and "twitter:creator".

All tags may be set for each page/node or as default set for all pages,
