Extension:Add HTML Meta and Title
When you enter the following in a wiki page:
<seo title="word1,word2" metakeywords="word3,word4" metadescription="word5,word6" google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />
...or the shorter...
<seo title="word1,word2" metak="word3,word4" metad="word5,word6" google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />
...these words are added to the HTML title and meta headers. This makes SEO (search engine optimization) with MediaWiki easier.
For example, the above would become:
<title>word1,word2 - Wiki Name</title> (the string "word1,word2" replaces page title) <meta name="keywords" content="word3,word4" /> <meta name="description" content="word5,word6" /> <meta google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />
(This is a new meta tag - existing metas are left untouched.)
- added support for PHP CodeSniffer checks
- fixed any remaining errors and warnings.
- added Google's site verification tag
- modified to work with MW versions 1.1.2 and up (Revision by Mic)
- have put
$emt="";in the parseSEO function because I got some nasty PHP notice for an unitialised variable...
- added htmlspecialchars() as a filter to the text that is displayed in the title and meta - anything else needed to prevent malicious people? I think no. (If you are an English speaker you may want to use the htmlentities PHP function, which is more restrictive)
- Initial version - everything works.
- Extension:WikiSEO is based on this extension, but rewritten to modern MediaWiki standards and under active development.
- Extension:MetaKeywordsTag for meta tags only
- If you only want to override the title on pages (not append words to it), you might also look at the DISPLAYTITLE tag in combination with the Manual:$wgAllowDisplayTitle and Manual:$wgRestrictDisplayTitle settings.
- Extension:Semantic Meta Tags for easily setting meta and keywords on entire namespaces or individual pages
