HTML Plugin for Confluence

1. I recently installed this:

2. Then added the plugin to my confluence page and included the following HTML segment:

<head><meta name="description" content="Free Web tutorials"></head>

3. Next I viewed the HTML source in firefox.

The meta description tag is shown inside the <body> of the source rather than the <head> tags as it should be. Anyone knows what I am doing wrong please?

In fact every HTML added will be inside the body for security reasons.

To add information inside the head tag, you should go to Confluence Admin > Custom HTML and add the code in the HEAD field.

Thanks Bruna but your suggestion doesn't work when I want to add a meta description tag to each individual wiki page.

I cannot believe confluence doesn't have a easy way to do this. Right now I only have the TechTime's Easy SEO plugin which doesn't support 4.2.2.
