Magento Open Source, 1.9.x

Magento 1.x Security Patch Notice
For Magento Open Source 1.5 to 1.9, Magento is providing software security patches through June 2020 to ensure those sites remain secure and compliant. Visit our information page for more details about our software maintenance policy and other considerations for your business.


The settings in the HTML Head section correspond to the <head> tag of an HTML page and can be configured for each store view. In addition to meta data for the page title, description, and keywords, the section includes a link to the favicon, and miscellaneous scripts. Instructions for search engine robots and the display of the store demo notice are also configured in this section.

To configure the HTML Head:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration. Then in the panel on the left, under General, select Design.
2. If you have multiple stores or views, set the Current Configuration Scope in the upper-left corner to the store or view where the configuration applies. Then, clear the checkbox after each field so new values can be entered.
3. Update the fields as needed.
4. When complete, click the Save Config button.
