Outputs: Blocks & Formats = Meta Tags?

Is it possible to manipulate meta tags based on the selection of a pages outputs (blocks & formats)?

Put a different way: Let’s say I have a WYSIWYG set by default in my Content Type, is there a way to change that to a plain input field or image selection field by manipulating the (blocks & formats) of that page?

Or is it suggested that I make a separate Content Type, one that has a Data Definition, that outlines a plain input field or image selection field.

I am trying to make this really easy for the users, give them some freedom, but make it structured.

Thanks for the assistance!

    Hi Chris,

    Depending on your specific use case, you could use smart fields and different asset factories to accomplish this.

    So the idea would be that you have maybe a dropdown that toggles the visibility of the WYSIWYG field and plain input field (or image chooser) depending on the selected value. Then, you would create different base assets and asset factories in which that dropdown field has a pre-selected value. So when the user creates a new "WYSIWYG page" the WYSIWYG field is shown, and if they create a new "plain input page" the plain input field is shown.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
