Adds content to the HTML "head" tag of all wiki pages


The extension point adds the provided content to the page HTML head element. It is typically useful for adding HTML metadata to pages. 

It was introduced in version 11.1RC1 with the identifier org.xwiki.platform.head and was later changed to org.xwiki.platform.html.head in 11.5.

The screenshot below illustrates an example of metadata tags injected into the HTML head using this extension point. The second one shows the code used by a User Interface Extension (UIX) to produce such content.


Such custom metadata tags can be produced by the following code sample, copied from the OpenGraph application.

{{html clean="false"}}
#set ($serverUrl = $xcontext.URLFactory.getServerURL($xcontext.context))
#set ($hasImages = false)
#macro(addOpenGraphTagsForAttachedImages $pageReference)
  #set ($page = $xwiki.getDocument($pageReference))
  #foreach ($attachment in $page.attachmentList)
    #if ($attachment.isImage())
      #set ($hasImages = true)
      #set ($path= $page.getAttachmentURL($attachment.filename))
     <meta property="og:image" content="$serverUrl$path" />
<meta property="og:url" content="$doc.externalURL"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:title" content="$tdoc.getRenderedTitle("plain/1.0")" />
## Add all current page's image attachments as "og:image".
## If current page has no attached image, add the ones of the home page, if any.
#set ($wikiDescriptor = $$
#if (!$hasImages && $wikiDescriptor && $doc.documentReference != $wikiDescriptor.mainPageReference)
