Similar plugins exist, but they are either limited in scope, or have terrible configuration interfaces. HeadTag aims to be an all-in-one solution to provide the ability to add the following types of tags to the document -
Linked StyleSheet (CSS) files
Custom tags (of any type)
The plugin can be used in two ways:
1. By using the plugin configuration to designate tags to be inserted by specific menu item, access level, or user group.
2. By plugin tags inserted into content items, descriptions or modules (which process content plugins).
Version 2.0 - Complete rewrite to achieve more tag assignment options, and to implement my tagparser class.
Version 2.1 - minor update to tagparser class resolves multiline script/style issue.
Version 2.2 - fix J3.x version detection issue in plugin config.
Version 2.4 - removed js config statement - we don't need it anymore. now using jtext::script
Version 2.5 - resolved issue introduced in J3.3.1 and J2.5.19

It works great on version 2.5 but it doesn't work on a clean 3.3 installation. On the respective tabs where you have to select the menu items, once you select one, it just doesn't display the rest of the fields "Tag Type" and "Source File".
I wish you all the best :-)
Fixed in version 2.5
Thank you Michael!
Version 2.4 contains the changes made for this user, among other performance improvements I made while hunting the bug.
I've run into the same roadblocks - functionality that's missing - the perfect script that isn't a joomla extension - a necessary file or replacement style for one page.... It can be frustrating to find a way to incorporate these elements in ways that they weren't intended.
Fortunately, I consider programming to be the plaything of my adulthood. When I don't have the toy I want to play with - I make it.
I'm glad to hear this extension is helping you achieve your goals. It may be an abstract concept - but great reviews like this help me to achieve mine!
HeadTag is simply the best. Extremely efficient, allow an incredible simplicity and power.
Using plugin's tags or options is possible get a in-deep control of external styleshhts, js, etc.
Thank you Michael!
