Hi everyone, newbie here.

I just want to know how is it possible to use the YAML in the <body>, especially in the <head> of the web page. I can't seem to find any examples on the docs and the web.

For example, if I put the following:
---
robots: noindex, nofollow
---

How can I access that 'robots' to be usable in the web page itself. My goal is to put it to the <meta />, like the following:
<meta robots="robots" content="${}" />

Welcome!
The YAML header data is available for use in templates in the post
namespace. So, with the default templates, you should be able to get
what you want with:

<meta robots="robots" content="${post.robots}" />

in the _templates/site.mako file.

Hi Doug,

When I  tried your solution and rebuild blogofile (to apply the changes), it returns an error.
I do:
>> blogofile build -s blogname

Then it returns the following:

ERROR:blogofile.template:Error rendering template: permapage.mako

I think I have to declare the keyword 'robots' somewhere (correct me if I'm wrong) so the compiler will know that it exist, only that I don't know where should I put it.

Hi Doug,

Using the default installation, I have managed to make it work, however, not in the directory and file you specified but in:
_templates/blog/post.mako

If I try to access it outside this file, it causes an error.
I guess I'll need to study a bit of Mako first then.
Thanks for your help!

Regards,
EJelome
