Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

Version 1.5 released. Nothing really major, just some house cleaning and simplifying. Changes:

  • Wrapped set of extra functions into a class, and removed the prefixing from the new methods.
  • Added comments, cleaned up some code.
  • Removed rah_metas_textile() function.

More info and downloads

Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

Dear all,

Just like Destry a couple of months ago, I also find just a blank, where the meta output should be.

Here’s the tag trace you’ve requested when Destry made his post. Are there any errors, I’m overlooking?

Kind regards,
Sharon

I wouldn’t say there are actual errors, the code is actually really fine. It’s just that, as far as I see, there is nothing to build the meta data from. That page is neither an individual article page (it’s a section landing page), the tag isn’t wrapped in an article tag, and there are no defaults set with the fallback attributes.

The tag basically needs an article to work. The tag can only output something when either;

  • Used in an individual article context.
  • Wrapped in an article or article_custom tag, or placed in an article form (as in example #3 or here).
  • Default values are set with description, keywords etc attributes.

Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

Hi Gocom,

I wonder if on a future version of this plugin (or maybe on a new one?), the content-processing capabilities of rah_metas could be accessed, making it possible to output just the processed content.
Let me try to explain:

I’d like to use the “description” (just the string generated by rah_metas) in other places, like the <meta property="og:description" content="STRING_GOES_HERE" />, taking advantage of how rah_metas create that string (i.e. it has a priority list for where to look for the content, it removes/strips html/textile, it cuts the resulting, cleaned, plain text string at certain amount of chars/words).

This may not be in the scope of the plugin, or maybe it’s the task for another plugin (one that receives a least of fields, check one by one until it finds one populated, and if so, it processes that field’s value and breaks the iteration). I’m even thinking the result could be achieved via a mix of smd_each (to iterate), smd_wrap (to process), and, optionally, rvm_substr (to cut).

Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

While here, let me add one issue report.
I’ve set messy_to_clean_redirect=“1”@ and I’m getting a redirect loop. It’s an issue between rah_metas and gbp_permanent_links, as disabling gbp_permanent_links fix the issue (ie. the messy URL is properly redirected to the nice one, thanks to rah_metas).
I wonder if this issue could be addressable from within rah_metas, or if it should be taken care by hacking a little into gbp_p_l.

Unfortunately I can literally do nothing about that. I would just recommend turning the redirecting feature off, and not looking back (the feature is not wroth much anyways).

The thing just is that in rah_metas eyes the URLs are messy, even if they are not. PHP’s core server variables are being altered to tell so by an other plugin. For instance, gbp_permanent_links and MLP both work (to some extent) by modifying PHP’s core variables (instead of creating their own copies). That’s how those plugins hack Textpattern to do the things they do. As it is, it can be expected that other plugins that relay on that same information will malfunction.

Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

Thanks for the prompt reply, Gocom.

No problem.
In any case, I tried a 301 external redirect (via mod_rewrite in .htaccess), which almost worked: it redirected properly from messy to clean.
But that brought another issue: as I wanted to do a redirect for addressing the “issue” of a form (created by yab_shop plugin) POSTing to a messy URL (action="/index.php?s=some_section"), the new problem was that the redirect worked, but it seems that POST request went missing in action.
In other words, the form POSTs to the messy URL, mod_rewrite redirects visitor to a clean one, but then, “nothing happens”: the submitted stuff goes M.I.A.
Anyway, I can live with that messy URL. And if not, I’ll hack yab_shop to submit to a clean URL, not a messy one. :D

Re: rah_metas // new 1.x-versions of SEO/redirecting/automatic meta-tools

Hi Jukka

I have a cheeky feature request for v1.6. I’d like to be able to specify a txp:var in the description_from stack.

I commonly use a single form to set/manage variables for small bits of copy and meta and it includes meta descriptions for pages that don’t have any specific articles, like landing pages.

eg. description_from="news-meta-desc,teaser,excerpt,body"

Does that sound possible?

Stuart,

Noted. We’ll see. There changes that rah_metas is going to get superseded.
