eorisis: DCMI Plugin

eorisis DCMI plug-in brings all the Dublin Core set of metadata elements into Joomla. DCMI metadata tags are HTML5 Valid and can be used for Search Engine Optimization, semantic tagging, for higher ranking/score, as well as for other implementations that are not necessarily Web-based. Dublin Core metadata can be used to describe any kind of resource, i.e., software, music, releases, events, artworks, paintings, products, collections of documents and non-electronic forms of media such as a museum or library archives. The Semantic Web standard promotes common data formats on the World Wide Web, by encouraging the inclusion of semantic content in web pages.

Owner's reply

Thank you for your review ! It is much appreciated indeed and I am very glad it is useful for your website(s). In the next plug-in version you will be able to set dcmi metadata to Joomla menu-items as well, which will result in being able to set that meta data to all your website's html pages (hopefully independent of component in use -- this is the goal).

If you need any kind of help, questions, suggestions or anything else, contact me directly anytime, using the email provided within the extension, or the page.

Best wishes
