Hi
I was told to tell about how I imagine adding some features to this great plugin here: [url:1awprm6f]http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/site-management/seo-a-metadata/9882[/url:1awprm6f]

So here's the idea: Add an 'Add new meta' button to the plugin that opens fields for 'content' + either 'name' or 'http-equiv'.
I was trying to 'hack' it together myself by adding a line to the plugins xml file:
<param name="http-equiv" type="text" default="" label="http-equiv" description="This is the http-equiv metadata to set." />
And also change some lines in the php code in the onAfterInitialise function:
// Try to get our http-equiv parameters
			$http_equiv = $this->params->get('http-equiv', '');
			$content = $this->params->get('content', '');

			// If we have both a name and content, set it.
			if($http_equiv && $content)
			{
				$document->setMetaData($http_equiv, $content);
			}

So an http-equiv and a new content filed appeared in the plugin configuration, but it didn't become displayed on the page source. I would guess the $document->setMetaData doesn't accept http-equiv.

Get back to me when you can :D

gabore,

We hired a developer to help us make the changes you were requesting to the setMetaData plugin. If we email you a copy, can you test it out for us before we make it available for everyone?

Thanks for your help!

I installed the plugin and it seems to be doing exactly what I wanted - checked the page source and all the tags were added.
It's nice to have the 'scheme' property, too - though I had to look it up what it is for :D

Cool. Glad it works.

We can add a better description to scheme so people don't have to go look it up. I don't know what it means, either, so I will have to look it up to add the description :D

If it has your thumbs up, I will go ahead and package it up and release it for everyone else.


Thanks again for your suggestion and help testing.

It definitely has my thumbs up. Like this it should become more popular. Well, it is a great help anyway if you want to avoid rewriting (and in some cases breaking) main template files.
