NOTE: This plugin generates the meta data "on the fly" when the page is loaded, it does not save the meta data to the content's meta data fields seen in the Joomla editor. These fields can then be used to override the auto-generated meta description generated by this plugin. To see the plugin at work, you must view your page's source in your browser.
** SEOSimple 2.0 Features **
** Ability to customize how the front page meta description is handled. You can choose between having it auto generated based on the front page's content, or using the default Joomla site-wide meta description.
** HTML page title configuration. Set your page titles in three different ways:
1. [CONTENT TITLE] | [SITE NAME]
2. [SITE NAME] | [CONTENT TITLE]
3. [CONTENT TITLE] (Joomla 1.5 default)
You can also customize what the separator is (in this ex. it's a pipe |, but can be any character).
** Additionally, you can customize the front page of your site's title tag in a number of different ways (or not at all). Layouts include:
[Disable - Use Joomla Default]
[Custom Title] | [Site Title]
[Site Title] | [Custom Title]
[Site Title] | [Default Title] *NEW*
[Default Title] | [Site Title] *NEW*
[Custom Title] | [Default Title] *NEW*
[Default Title] | [Custom Title] *NEW*
** *NEW in 2.0* We have added the ability to set your category pages to "noindex, follow" -- a common meta robots setting for such pages to avoid duplicate content penalties.
All feedback is greatly appreciated and will go towards making future versions even better. Enjoy!
Besides it works for J3+ though produces a number of strict warnings' because of some deprecated code standards. But this doesn't matter for a production web-site as PHP warnings should be disabled. Removig calls by reference like &JFactoy -> JFactoy solves this minor issue.
And I love the different options concerning site title/page title/custom title and so on.
Nice job. Oh yeah, it's free. Beats paying 147 bucks ;-)

I ask everyone to Please support all the developers by displaying their name while using their free products.
Had to do some digging to know to view 'page source' to actually see the results. I was looking in the meta data fields at the article level.
Not sure if I missed something in the documentation, but if it's not there, would be good to add it (might be good to add this note to the description text at the plugin module).
Thanks for making this plugin freely available!
Hi Brad, thanks! And great point about being clearer regarding how the plugin works. I've adjusted the description text above to better reflect this and help avoid any confusion with the plugin's use.
