Occasionally when launching the redesign of a website, I will need to copy over the title tags, meta descriptions, and meta keywords, if they are already optimized. When dealing with a CMS, this means going into the source code, and copying the text within each tag. While repeating this for each page, I started wondering if there was an easy way to copy the title tag, etc, using a Firefox plugin.
There was one “Copy Title” plugin out there, except it had an issue where it wasn’t copying the whole tag if there was a dash in it (whether this was an intended featured, or a bug, I don’t know). I decided to develop my own Firefox extension instead.
Download and install from its page on Mozilla.org:
The add-on adds a right-click context menu allowing you to:
- Copy the title text
- Copy the meta description text
- Copy the meta keywords text
- Copy the HTML of the title, meta desc, and meta keywords
If you have any suggestions or feature requests, let me know. I’m thinking about adding a menu item to quickly check if Google Analytics is on the page, and what the account number is.
Note: This add-on is no longer actively being developed and there are no plans for Firefox Quantum support.
