Site Management

The Header Tags plugin gives you more control over the heading tags (h1-h6) in your website. The plugin searches for existing heading tags within the selected content area and handles them according to your specifications. So if want all the H4 tags in your site to be changed to H3, you can!

The default behaviour after installing the plugin, is checking if there is a H1 tag in the output of the component. If none are found, the plugin changes the first H2 tag into a H1.

The content area is where the plugin searches for heading tags. The component output is like the main content section of your website. This way the plugin ignores any heading tags which may exist in your template or modules. If you want to control ALL the header tags of your website, select entire page.

For each tag you can specify if the tag is mandatory, so the tag should exist at least once. If it doesn't, you can select from which tag the first one should be changed.

You can also select how many times a tag is allowed, and to what the excess tags should be changed to.

Exclude (new feature!):
Sometimes the plugins finds more heading tags than you'd want to handle, and this can be excluded but therefor the tags must have some signature. For now the plugin supports excluding by either a class or an id attribute. To exclude tags, enter the value for the selected attribute, you can specify multiple values to test against. Any values entered horizontaly devided by a space must ALL exist in the attribute, any value enter on a new line may EITHER exist for the attribute value to be excluded.
I.e. if you enter on one line 'classa classb', only the heading tags which contains BOTH classes (in any order) will be excluded. If you enter classa and classb on two lines, the tags containing either classa OR classb will be excluded.

A big thank you to everyone leaving these great reviews! It's awesome and keeps us motivated!


Great, and does exactly what it says

Ease of use

3 minutes to install and configure

I used this to: To change the first H2 tag on each page to a H1, where no H1 exist. Great and a must for SEO.

Easy to install and did exactly what I wanted to do.

Ease of use



Didn't need any worked right away but did use documentation.


Explained what I needed to do. I am not a professional web designer.

I used this to: I bought a Joomla template to build my site and all the page titles are

tags which isn't good for search engines. This plugin meant that in literally minutes I could overcome this problem without having to mess around with code or overrides. Thanks very much.

Works excellent

Ease of use

Very easy in use

I used this to: It really helps. I am using Joomla 2.5 and K2, and for me there was a problem to change h2 tags to h1. I tried to find the problem in code, but i have poor knowledge of it. The plugin itself solved the problem in one minute!

Good extension

If you are working with K2, this extension is must have. I haven't had to overide components, just added extension and it worked fine. Good work!!!

This extension is one of the MUST HAVE of Joomla.

I'm using it with Phoca Download which by default makes H3 title, thanks to this extension, I don't need to enter the source code of the component.

Thank you for your great work.

Great Extension

What a great extension. I usually have to jump through hoops and employ script tricks to concert my Article titles to h1 tags, but this extension did it with ease. Thanks so much for the great extension.

The easiest thing to use.!!!!

Sebastiaan was a big help in the forum, I still can not believe the quality of the support (did I mention it was free?), very descriptive. I highly recommend this extension. Like someone else already said: "SHOULD be a standard joomla function", thank you joomla specialist! You rock!

First, this plugin works straight from the box, excellent.

Second, if you use K2 you need this! Category titles are rendered in K2 as h2 and Item Titles as h3. This plugin has resolved the tedious solution I had implemented on other sites.

Great extension

I would give 6 of 5 stars if I could. Works perfectly.

The Simple Mobile Detection plugin does a simple check if the client is on a mobile device. If so, it stores this in the User State and you can check anyware in your code if your dealing with a mobile client. In the update 2.0.5 we've solved the Joomla caching problem, and added a new feature (beta) where you can select which detection system you can use! There are great mobile detection systems out there, which are much more advanced then the default plugin behavior. We've added two for now, the Mobile_Detect class by http://mobiledetect.net. And MobileESP by http://blog.mobileesp.com. In the plugin there is new tab called Detection System where you can select which detection system you would like to use. That's it, nothing else to configure! For the more advanced users, the detecting class itself is available in the user state $app->getUserState('cmobile.detection.system); More will be placed here http://www.joomla-specialist.net/joomla-extensions/joomla-simple-mobile-detection.html Note, that Simple Mobile Detection plugin is not part of these projects. The usage and terms&conditions will remain the same. Please refer to the project sites to read more about it. New in version 2.0: Mobile content in articles! We have finally added the content switch for articles to the plugin. It is still BETA but you can use it for simple setups. In the settings of the plugin you have a tab called Content Switch. Here you can set if you want the feature to be enabled. When enabled the plugin will search through content articles looking for {IfMobile}...{EndIfMobile} tags. Any content between these tags will be displayed only on mobile devices! Go to the extension page for a more detailed view of how to use mobile content switch in articles. The Mobile Detection plugin uses the default Joomla Browser class and extends it with detection for iPad, iPhone, iPod and Android devices. The Joomla iPad detection and iPhone or iPod detection will store on what device the client currently is viewing the website. The Joomla Android detection is a little more advanced and also tries to collect more information about the device, like the model and the Android build. Here you can find example code: http://www.joomla-specialist.net/joomla-extensions/simple-mobile-detection.html Also it contains features to redirect mobile users to a different URL and set a different template for mobile devices. Set viewport meta-tag (new feature) You can select to set a viewport meta-tag for mobile devices. It has the recommended content 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1' set by default, but it's also possible to change the value. Development mode You can set the plugin in development mode to test if the mobile settings work. You can either the plugin in development mode for specific ip addressen, or set it to always for all browsers. Per device options With the per device options you're able to set specific options for a device separately. Currently the plug
