MarkupSEO - The all-in-one SEO solution for ProcessWire.

Recommended Posts

I fixed this bug and changed how customs are rendered. So now they will overwrite existing meta tags if they have the same key.

That means: I won't add a special "robots" field to pages, but if you define "robots := index,follow" in the custom area, that will overwrite config settings. Guess that should do the job, too.

And some more minor changes: I switched to PHP_EOL instead of \n and \n\r, which should solve the double line break issue. And I added a option, to add a whitespace at the beginning if automatically inserted. (will publish it in 10min)

Good idea!

Even more questions ;-)

After a short look into the source i found :

  • seo_tab
  • seo_tab_END
  • seo_title
  • seo_keywords
  • seo_description
  • seo_custom
  • seo_image
  • seo_canonical

As accessible fields in the Template when using manual mode ?

How do i access  things like the generated Open Graph or Twitter Cards or maybe the Robots setting? Are they added to Custom ?

Everything rendered should be available through $page->seo->...

(More complicated keys like "og:site_name" are available through $page->seo->{"og:site_name"})

@ Nico

I believe the Google Preview shows the wrong path. Underneath the title the path of the admin page shows in stead of front end url.

@Nico: Thx! 

Can you also take look at this part:

When you fill in the Twitter Username, it prints in the metatags correctly. But when you visit another page and go back to the modules settings page, the field of Twitter Username is empty!

Getting this nice little error (see screenshot)

The image_main of this template actually is just a single image so i guess $main_image does not return the array or object your functions expects. Plus the "Formated value" of this field is set to  "single item(null if empty)" in field settings.  

But i am not sure if this is the reason ?

Edit: I used the image_main field as fallback for seo_url in module settings , even if this is not wanted for as one is a plaintext(url) field and the other is an image field , i think a fatal error should not happen.

Hi Nico, I tried your module today, installed version 030 first from a previous download, then upgraded to the current version 060. 

After that I tried to uninstall the module to try that out and got an error:

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to Fields::___delete() must implement interface Saveable, null given in /mypath/wire/core/Fields.php on line 265

Hey - the problem is that there are no fields to delete if only updated and not installed. 0.3.0 is not compatible to 0.6.0 and I think the best thing todo is to delete 0.3.0 first and then install 0.6.0. (Still beta until 1.0.0).

In your case you just have to comment the uninstall method out or delete it completely from the module's file.

@everyone with the other bug: I manged to get it working today. Need to do some more test and will upload it tomorrow.

I deleted the module directly from the database and installed it again.

Yes: install/uninstall is fine when doing a fresh, clean install. The update was the problem.

Hi Nico,

Just found out about this module! I'm going to give a spin tomorrow :)

I guess I was away a little bit too long from the forum....

Nico, I'm using your module in many sites, it's great...but just one think, what about pagination? I would like to add something like {pageNum} or similar into title format like

{title} - {sitename} - {pageNum}

Other idea: what about having a title format based on template? I have a photo website and and I would like to create custom title for each photo, I cannot edit each photo one by one, right now I detect the template in my head.inc and for those pages I add a custom title but could be nice having something inside your module
example:
I have "picture" template and I would like the title as:

{phototitle} - This is a Photo by {author} for category {category.title}

where 
phototitle & author & (category is a pagefield so I can access other data like title)
are fields of picture template

PageNum makes sense to me but how do I find out the actual page number? Only by getting "page" from the url?

For your picture profile I would recommend to disable "auto title" and  just to do it like this in your picture template:

<?php

$custom_title = $page->title.' - This is a Photo by '.$page->user->title.' for category '.$page->category->title;

include 'head.inc';

.
.
.

And in your head something like:

<title><?php ((isset($custom_title)) ? $custom_title : (($page->seo->title != '') ? $page->seo->title : $page->title. ' - '.'My cool Webseite')); ?></title>

Nico, when I set a title in the SEO tab, the preview doesn't update according to the default title setting... So, the preview won't match up.

Also, is it no longer possible to set different titles? The site title format is now applying to both the page title and the SEO title. Is this by design?

Well, there aren't "default title settings". If you leave the seo title field empty it uses the "{titile} - {sitename}" thing. If you put a title into the seo field it shouldn't use "{titile} - {sitename}". I'll take a look at the code. Could you add this as an issue on github?

In the previous version (0.3), the title tag and the og:title tag would differ as, before, the title tag was not automatically inserted.

Now, the title field (and not the seo title field) becomes useless when it comes to the title tag, as the seo title field will be used for it if filled out.

With the previous version, it did what I expected it to do: insert og:title for me, so that the Google result title would be different. Of course, I entered in my title tag manually, which worked.

So, I think that there should be an option to not include the title tag, if someone wants to insert it manually.

I'll open an issue regarding making the option available.

Hi Nico,

it's about time for me trying your module. Fist of all: Thank you for sharing!

I have a question about the title (or maybe a wish):

The title can be pre-filled automatically. I like that. But it is limiting for me.

Right now I have a separate field for the window title, called title_window.

The reason:

This gives me the freedom to name the page differently in the admin (for the page list and selections) and the real title output.

The title is filled in by the editor and the title_window is left to set by the seo guy.

In case the title_window (SEO) is not set, there is a fallback to the title, when I output the site.

(I think that is the way Wordpress handles that too, in combination with the SEO module, if I recall this correctly.)

(EDIT: Why an extra field and not the module: I do not like the tab clicking to the SEO area in the normal workflow of an editor.

I want the editor to have the title and the SEO title close together. - But this is a matter of taste)

Is there a way to mimic that in the module?

Select a custom field with a fallback to title?

(Of course there are workarounds for me - maybe this idea finds friends in the community But maybe this makes things too complicated. :-) )

And some small thoughts:

canonical

I would like a comment to the canonical tag field what default you set in case the field is empty.

(it is probably the page url without segments and variables?)

segments and variable

A question is how to handle segments and variables (page numbers) best?

I use segments and page numbers for filtering content.

To avoid double content I set my templates manually at the moment to set a noindex tag in case a segment or page number is found.

I wonder if this is good practice/needed when there is a canonical tag.

link rel="alternate" hreflang

On my multi-language sites I have something like this:

<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="http://mysite.com/en/press/" />
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="http://mysite.com/es/prensa/" />
<link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-us" href="http://mysite.com/us/press/" />

This links same content in different languages together for Google.

Depending on how languages are set up on the site, the module could easily write such code automatically.

(Right now I have some hand coded stuff which does exactly that...)

EDITED

      Please use the new RockFinder2
      #######################
      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
