The Add HTML Meta and Title extension allows for easier SEO (search engine optimization) with MediaWiki.

Usage[edit]

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...[1]

<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>Original title, word1,word2</title>         (the string ", word1,word2,..." is added)
<meta name="word3,word4" content="word5,word6" />
<meta google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />

(This is a new meta tag - existing metas are left untouched.)

Code structure[edit]

This extension uses two MediaWiki hooks: OutputPageBeforeHTML (for the meta tag) and BeforePageDisplay (for the title tag).

This extension is based in part on the extension MetaKeywordsTag.

Installation and Download[edit]

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called AddHTMLMetaAndTitle in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/AddHTMLMetaAndTitle/AddHTMLMetaAndTitle.php";
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Changelog[edit]

v0.6.0[edit]

  • added Google's site verification tag

v0.5.1[edit]

  • modified to work with MW versions 1.1.2 and up (Revision by Mic)

v0.4[edit]

  • have put $emt=""; in the parseSEO function because I got some nasty PHP notice for an unitialised variable...

v0.2[edit]

  • 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)

v0.1[edit]

  • Initital version - everything works.
