Annotating a document with meta data

    The documentation markdown files are allowed to contain meta data. This is done by adding YAML at the top of the document.

    To add meta data, the metadata is between two lines, each with three dashes. Every line contains a keyword followed by a ':' and then the value e.g.:

    ---
    versionFrom: 7.3.4
    meta.Title: "Contribute to Umbraco CMS"
    meta.Description: "Explanation of how you can contribute to Umbraco, what the process is like and what things to keep in mind when contributing."
    ---
    

    Supported meta data properties:

    • versionFrom: A property with semver notation to indicate from which version this article is valid
    • versionTo: A property with semver notation to indicate till which version this article is valid
    • versionRemoved: A property with semver notation to indicate that the topic has been removed from a given version
    • meta.Title: Used for SEO - Meta Title
    • meta.Description: Used for SEO - Meta Description
