Meta tag depending of selected and title

lenamtl asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27

I'm aware about Google ignore most of the time, meta tag and use content. (This is not the point here)

I'm working on an existing web site, not created by me. I need a quick solution, I guess with variables.

The website construction: (no known template system)

index.html which is presentation page with language selection

 menu, content, footer several content pages that are embedded by index.php

What I need to do only for those 2 pages welcome_en.html and welcome_fr.html (these pages are embedded so no header possible on these page) to have different page title (browser title) and different META tag.

Any solution is welcome


extra information

Language detection code on index.php:

$lang = $_GET['lang'];
$page = $_GET['page'];
if ($_GET['page'] == "" || !$_GET['page']) {
$page = "welcome";
if ($_GET['lang'] == "" || !$_GET['lang']) {
$lang = "_fr";

Open in new window

for the embeded menu, footer ect like this one

<?php include "menu.php";

Open in new window

for the embedded content
        //echo "$page$lang.html";
        $lang = preg_replace('/[^a-z0-9_ ]/i', '', $_GET['lang']);
        $page = preg_replace('/[^a-z0-9_ ]/i', '', $_GET['page']);
        include $page . $lang . ".html";

Open in new window

The header info Meta tag and title are in index.php for all pages with no variables.

PS II'm not using any CMS or Framework or template system and don't want to use them.
