Thank you for your time!

Just a doublecheck, did You upload the mod from the mod site or the one SONSiVRi attached?

As said many times before , the mod from the modsite supports only SMF 2.0 .  SONSiVRi ported it to work with 1.1.5 , so install his version, and You shouldn't experience any problems.

AFAIK this file is 2.0 specific, so uploading it to 1.1.5 installation won't change a thing.

OK i installed it.

But i think i understood the meta tags wrong.
Can you give some information about what the meta tags are and what do they help with?
I have searched at google but i would like just a simple answer.

meta tags are descriptor of your web page, that helps to search engines index your web pages properly.
SMF's meta tag management isn't enough and this mods increases it.
it collects some keywords in topics, messages... and writes them in meta tag area.
in summary: meta tag helps to get higher rank in search engines.

Mod for v1.1.x Forums,
I recompiled mod from beginning and I tested on 1.1.5, there is no error detected.
Installation file attached as below.

"rsw686"
*** I will be happy my nick included if you publish this mod.
*** I think its better to add random topic's subjects to the meta keywords when user browsing message index, not only user defined keywords.

Thanks for doing this! This should really be put in the mods list for those of us using 1.1.5 !!

I put this to use(1.1.5), and within one week my post started to show up on google's search with the content of the post .. :D ..instead of the boiler-plate message "Please login...."  ::)

The only problem I have now is that I use utf8-encoding and there are occasional strange ? symbols after parsing.....related to the smilies and   which I have not been able to fix.  >:(   I think my problems could be related to the PHP's configuration(host uses 4.4.8?)....but no problems when I tried my codes on a local machines using XAMPP.  :( Could someone please help?  :D

The smilies are little gif images. It shouldn't do any harm. The searcher is probably intelligent enough to figure out that the symbol stands for SOMETHING. It shouldn't have an effect on search engine results either. I wouldn't disable smilies because of it.

Parsing? I'm a noob. Does that mean the way it's layed out or displayed?

I never got the boiler plate message because I altered the original meta description, which ended up on every single page that was indexd! Google Webmaster tools let me know about it. Hence, my being here to get this mod - the adaptation to 1.1.5! from SONSiVRi !

Thank you both rsw686 SONSiVRi

Craig

I tried to install, but the test failed for this file: ./Themes/default/index.template.php

I have attached a list of the mod packages I have installed.  Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated - thank you!

Maybe the problem "4.    Easy Edit Meta Data    1.0 " mod.
vBulletin mod needs 2 pattern in ./Themes/default/index.template.php, so you need to manually edit it by yourself.
I dunno which mod changed the original, and you can lose that mod if you apply this one.

Thank you SONSiVRi - after parsing both mods, it appears they want to replace the same code in these two edits:

vBulletin Style Meta Tags (1.1) for v1.1.x forums:
Quote
In file $themedir/index.template.php
Find:
<meta name="description" content="', $context['page_title'], '" />

Replace with:
<meta name="description" content="', !empty($context['meta_description']) ? $context['meta_description'] : $modSettings['meta_description'], '" />


Find:
<meta name="keywords" content="PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum" />

Replace with:
<meta name="keywords" content="', !empty($context['meta_keywords']) ? $context['meta_keywords'] . ', ' : '', $modSettings['meta_keywords'], '" />

EASY EDIT META DATA V1.0:
Quote
In file $themedir/index.template.php
Find:
   <meta name="description" content="', $context['page_title'], '" />

Replace with:
';
echo (!empty($modSettings['meta_description'])) ? '   <meta name="description" content="'. $modSettings['meta_description'] .'" />' : '<meta name="description" content="'. $context['page_title'] .'" />


Find:

, '
   <meta name="keywords" content="PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum" />

Replace with:

;
echo (!empty($modSettings['meta_keywords'])) ? '
   <meta name="keywords" content="'. $modSettings['meta_keywords'] .'" />' : '';
echo (!empty($modSettings['meta_copyright'])) ? '
   <meta name="copyright" content="'. $modSettings['meta_copyright'] .'" />' : '';
echo (!empty($modSettings['meta_author'])) ? '
   <meta name="author" content="'. $modSettings['meta_author'] .'" />' : '';
echo '

I'm not experienced at working with code.  Is there a way I can manually edit this code so that the mods will be compatible?  Can I just add the code for this mod after the Easy Edit Meta Data code, or something?

If you insist to apply subsequent mod (vBulletin Style Meta Tags), those 2 patterns wont be touched because "find" criteria doesnt match but the rest of "vBulletin Style Meta Tags" will be applied and it shown installed. After that you have to modify these patterns by yourself and make mod is running. To do that you need to download and edit "$themedir/index.template.php" by finding and replacing proper codes as you wrote above. But I think its the best way uninstall of "EASY EDIT META DATA". Because you dont need that one while you using "vBulletin Style Meta Tags". Both are working for same job and you only need one. I dunno what "EASY EDIT META DATA" mod does but I think "vBulletin Style Meta Tags" is automated version of it.

I've installed the SONSIVRI version of the MOD on my SMF 1.1.5 version forum, and it installed normally, but, the keywords that are installed by default are still there, mixed with the keywords that the MOD generates, however, my index.template.php was successfully changed by the code of the MOD, this is the entire code of my index.template.php file:

Code: [Select]
<?php
// Version: 1.1.5; index

/* This template is, perhaps, the most important template in the theme. It
contains the main template layer that displays the header and footer of
the forum, namely with main_above and main_below. It also contains the
menu sub template, which appropriately displays the menu; the init sub
template, which is there to set the theme up; (init can be missing.) and
the linktree sub template, which sorts out the link tree.

The init sub template should load any data and set any hardcoded options.

The main_above sub template is what is shown above the main content, and
should contain anything that should be shown up there.

The main_below sub template, conversely, is shown after the main content.
It should probably contain the copyright statement and some other things.

The linktree sub template should display the link tree, using the data
in the $context['linktree'] variable.

The menu sub template should display all the relevant buttons the user
wants and or needs.

This is my forum URL: http://forums.drpennystock.com

If you see the source code of this URL, http://forums.drpennystock.com/general-discussion/ptsh-pts-inc-nasdaq-bb/, it's from a topic, you will see that the first 6 keywords are related with the topic, but, from "PHP" till "forum" the keywords are the default keywords, this is very annoying, can someone help me to solve this issue, please?

"PTSH, PTS, Inc, Nasdaq, BB, PTSH - PTS Inc. - Nasdaq BB, PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum"

Thanks

Problem solved, I just deleted the keywords in the "Basic Features".

How can I include the topic title in the description?

Right now the description is the first 55 characters of the message, what I want is the description begin with the title of the topic and only after that the first words of the message.

In a SEO perspective, the description is also very important, and, 99% of the time, the first words of a message has nothing to do with the topic.

Thanks

I don't know if it's the best solution but this is what I did to add the topic title in the meta description.
 In index.template.php
Code: [Select]
<meta name="description" content="', $context['page_title'], ' - ', !empty($context['meta_description']) ? $context['meta_description'] : $modSettings['meta_description'], '" />

Many thanks, chadon, it worked.

I have one question that is not totally related with this mod, but, maybe you or someone can help me, look at this piece of code that I have on my index.template.php and tell me if this small piece of code is ok this way, look specially this code:
Code: [Select]
', empty($context['robot_no_index']) ? '' : '
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />', '

This code belongs to the default code that comes with smf, but, looks like it's not closed, can someone help me, please?

Thanks     



Code: [Select]
<meta name="description" content="', $context['page_title'], ' - ', !empty($context['meta_description']) ? $context['meta_description'] : $modSettings['meta_description'], '" />', empty($context['robot_no_index']) ? '' : '
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />', '
<meta name="keywords" content="', !empty($context['meta_keywords']) ? $context['meta_keywords'] . ', ' : '', $modSettings['meta_keywords'], '" />

This seems like the mod of my dreams, but please clear up the confusion. I'm running 1.1.5 and there was a post here with a mod that will let me use this mod. Confusing? Well, what happened to the mod of the mod? Seems like a large demand for a non 2.0 compatible version. Did the author edit that post with the attachment? I can't find any links, downloads, info elsewhere. This has turned into a confusing thread imo. The author needs to clear this up, or at least include the mod to his mod. Anyone?

Okay just to update. In fact, if you are viewing this thread as a guest you will be quite confused. It seems guests cannot view or download attachments. So the 1.1.5 mod of this mod wasn't appearing in that post. Just a note to people who find themselves as confused as me.

Overall, I think this took about 3 minutes to implement. I'm like everyone else and using a different theme. Because of this, you simply can't just install the 1.1.5 mod and be done. You must go back to the original mod and view the manual instructions, and edit your template page (index.template.php) with two really simple pastes. I couldn't find the language file in my theme, but the changes made by the mod installation were fine as is.

I will post back to confirm the brilliance of this mod. If I don't post back, then my forums must really suck.

Also, to the person saying that this should be part of SMF and not a mod, I say forget that idea! Keep the regular n00b user in the dark. If everyone has this advantage then it isn't an advantage right? As it stands, I hope to have an advantage in the search engines thanks to this mod.

In closing, Sonsivri should press to have his mod of the mod included somewhere. Having it in this thread is hardly justice. I appreciate the original author, but to me seems a little stubborn as to not include 1.1.5. Thanks for your time everyone.
