Meta Robots Plugin

Add more Meta Robots options to Joomla Metadata parameters.

A woman in the forums asked "Why can't I set noarchive in meta robots?" I thought to myself, yeah - what she said.

Although a little complicated, it turns out that it can be done with minimal fuss. This plugin extends the follow/nofollow + index/noindex options to include unavailableafter, notranslate, noimageindex, noydir, noodp, nosnippet, and noarchive.

Installation is easy. Install the plugin, enable it, and edit your robots parameters. The plugin functions in Global Configuration, Menu Item Edit, and Article Edit views.

Update 1.3 - resolved issue that occurs when menu type == external URL - rewrote javascript into mootools class
Update 1.4 - Added more forms where robots are extended

4/26/2012 - Joomla 1.6/1.7 availability and support withdrawn.

One of the best Meta-Tools. Thats what i looking for. You can change the follower and noindex attribute in the articles not with an extra Component. It save time.
