Re: use meta description and body tag to create the swishdescription

Thanks for the response.   
I tried all three ways but the "swishdescription" is only filled out if I have the meta description tag is defined.  If the page does not have one then the "swishdescription" is blank.   If the page has the meta description the "swishdescription" is made up of the meta description and the body.  That is fine.  If the page does not have a meta description then the "swishdescription" should be made up of what is in the body.

Any ideas?

You spelled description wrong.

I'd probably do it like:

DefaultContents HTML2
StoreDescription HTML2 
PropertyNameAlias swishdescription description

But you could do this, also:

PropertyNames description
PropertyNameAlias description body

Or maybe like you were trying:

But "swishdescription" is noramlly used with StoreDescription.
