I'm using NSM Better Meta 1.1.3 with EE 2.7.2 . I'm trying add entry specific meta data, however when I use the tag: {exp:nsm_better_meta:template url_title="{segment_3}"} I get the error below. It seems to the url_title part that's causing the issue, any other nsm_better_tag works just fine.

Any ideas?


Error Number: 1054

You'll definitely need to upgrade to NSM Better Meta 1.1.5a - the release notes mention EE 2.6 compatibility, which likely includes accounting for the database changes which it brought (specifically, the removal of the dst_enabled column).

  • Hi Derek, thanks for help. I've updated the plugin and it looks like that's fixed it. Thanks again.
