SEO: Looking For Textpattern Plug-In Similar to WP Headspace

I’m doing my first Textpattern site, and am looking for a plug-in / plug-ins that will give me similar features as Headspace does on Wordpress. The feature I’m especially looking for vis a vis Headspace is to have an option to enter a Page Title for SEO and Page Description.

I searched the Plug-ins but couldn’t find anything, perhaps I missed one?

Thnx in advance!

I’m not familiar with the Headspace WP plugin but maybe rah_metas will get you there too?

Page title and meta description are pretty easy to handle with TXP tags.
Search this forum for “meta description”.

I use Article dependent meta description in page header as my personal approach :)

Re: SEO: Looking For Textpattern Plug-In Similar to WP Headspace

With the introduction of txp:variable, it becomes rather easy to have custom titles for various pages.

The below code I have in a Form called head, and I call it from a Page like so: <txp:output_form form=“head” />

<txp:if_section name=",">
<txp:if_category>
<txp:variable name="page-title" value='<txp:site_name /> - <txp:category title="1" />' />
<txp:else />
<txp:if_search>
<txp:variable name="page-title" value='<txp:page_title separator=" - "/>' />
<txp:else />
<txp:variable name="page-title" value='<txp:site_name /> - <txp:site_slogan />' />
</txp:if_search>
</txp:if_category>
<txp:else />
<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:variable name="page-title" value='<txp:site_name /> - <txp:title />' />
<txp:else />
<txp:variable name="page-title" value='<txp:site_name /> - <txp:site_slogan />' />
</txp:if_individual_article>
</txp:if_section>

<head>
<title><txp:variable name="page-title" /></title>
<meta name="description" content="<txp:variable name="page-title" />" />
<meta name="title" content="<txp:variable name="page-title" />" />
</head>

The only condition I don’t test for is an author landing page, that’s because I’m the only author on my sites. If you combine all the if conditions on one line in your head form, only one blank line will be generated in your final output.
