I have released the Metadata Plugin for Manila. This plugin allows the association of arbitrary metadata with stories in a Manila site. Metadata can be indexed automatically and macros can use these indices to build tables of contents, keyword search results, product summaries, or whatever you can dream up.

At it's most basic level, it allows you to add standard META tags like description and keywords to your Manila web pages. At a more advanced level, it lets you treat Frontier a bit like a relational database.

This makes Manila incredibly powerful. I've written up a bit on this:

The plugin can be downloaded from

and the plugin is subscribable so you can get future updates by updating metadata.root.

Thanks to David Bayly, the Metadata Plugin for Manila now supports remote procedural calls to get and set metadata for a given message.

Version 1.5 of the Metadata Plugin supports adding, editing and deleting of multiple templates in Manila.

I've written a how-to that steps you through the process.

More information about the Metadata Plugin is available here:
