What file actually loads the meta data to the site?  Or any header data for that matter.

Some how I have a site that has meta tags appearing on every skin for every page that need to be removed.  This is got to be on a code or database level.  Any help would be great.  Thanks!

Thats going to depend on a number of factors - firstly ... what version of dnn are you running.
Different versions of DNN handle meta data in different ways.
Secondly - what meta data are you seeing that needs to be removed.
DNN injects metadata as a part of default.ascx but you can just edit that without an understanding of how other parts of the system interact with the metadata.

Thanks for the Response Wes. I am running DNN 7 and ended up finding the place the code was being injected.

/default.aspx

 In general it's not a good idea to edit default.aspx
The reason for this is that your changes will be overwritten on upgrade.
You can also manipulate the meta tags from the skin, but you would need to use our free style helper skin object for that.
(it can change the meta tags dynamically)

That advantage being that your changes stay in place on upgrade.
But it is a bit more work to make the changes.

I inherited a mess, so I have to work with the environment I have... but...

What would you say is a best solution for this problem.

I have two separate installs for DNN. One is for development / testing and the other is for live / production.

I never do a full publish, just the files that have been changed. I don't want the development site indexed by search engines, so the list guy that I replaced, put the meta no-index tags in the /default.aspx page. I didn't know this was the case and an third party developer asked for the file to be published. This caused a deindexing of our site.

Not worrying about an upgrade anytime soon, so i thought I would write a bit of code to check the domain and only put the no-index metas in on the development url.

Thoughts?
