thumbs up Bugo

Is it possible for META Description tag to have not first sentence, but for example first 200 characters from the post? That would be awesome.

In the verification metatags section, what type of text am i supposed to be putting in the boxes?
  Thanks.

Bugo

What is written there?

When you try to verify your Site in Google Webmasters Tool, Bing etc., you will get a small verification snippet. You need to enter these snippets in these boxes

Hi there, I'm using Optimus Brave but am running into a problem. It won't change the meta description no matter how I enter the settings. I went to my index.template.php file and saw that I had a meta description in there that it was pulling. But when I remove it, the forum still won't show what I'm asking it to via Optimus. Any ideas? Thanks.

Bugo

You shouldn't change nothing in index.template.php, never. This mod doesn't make any edits with files.

jobey

Apart from entering a description in the forum review....and entering the verification metatags....should i be doing anything else with this mod to optimize the results i get?

Bugo

Not required, but one can use other tabs of this mod.

Of course, it's possible. Open Subs-Optimus.php, find this:
if ($smcFunc['strlen']($teaser) < 150) return strip_tags($teaser);
and replace with
if ($smcFunc['strlen']($teaser) < 200) return strip_tags($teaser);

Then find this:
$teaser = $smcFunc['substr']($teaser, 0, 150);
and replace with
$teaser = $smcFunc['substr']($teaser, 0, 200);

Finally, find
$result = !empty($tmp1) ? $tmp1 : (!empty($tmp2) ? $tmp2 : (!empty($tmp3) ? $tmp3 : rtrim($teaser)));
and replace with
$result = rtrim($teaser);

Uhura!

Great mod! Where are the controls in the Admin Panel?

You wouldn't believe me — Admin Panel => Configuration => Search Engine Optimization :)

Uhura!

It's not that - I thought I would get a faster response in the support thread.

Anyway - it was my lack of attention. i uploaded but did not hit "install"

Sorry LOL!

So back to my original post. Whether or not I edit the index.template.php file is irrelevant. The mod still won't change the meta description no matter how I enter the settings.

alphacaveman

Anyone? Optimus Brave, though I ask it to, won't change the meta description anywhere. Any ideas?

Bugo

Try to use original index.template.php, without ANY changes.

As far as I know, that's what I'm doing. :) Can you tell me what parts are essential so I can check them with the SMF default? Or if you know of a quicker, easier way, I'd certainly appreciate that as well.
