Editable content, menus, templates

Editable content, menus, templates

Hi there,

A few dumb questions:

1) An interesting extension. Unless I am wrong, I do not see a place to do the metatags. Do I make editable areas there too?

2) I am currently building a large site and have already built a dynamic menu with menuwriter. I presume that cms builder works independently. ie the dynamic menu which uses framework as an include is not editable but is included in the template. So I do not need any menu built on using this extension. Is that okay?

Any comments will be valued and most welcome.

Thanks

1) Yes... if you name the regions "meta-description", "meta-keywords", or "meta-title" they will show in a special metatag section when editing in powercms.

2) This is correct as well.

PowerCMS Builder meta tags are not saving to the DB

In PowerCMS Builder, the meta tags fields don't seem to be updating to the database after I hit the "Save" button. The database is showing those fields as empty.

It seems to work for me... I'll open a support incident so that I can look into this with you over the phone.

sorry as am probably being a bit thick here, once you have added the region, for example meta-title, what code do you put in to the page and where does it go? Does it replace the entire <title></title> tag or does it go within the title tag?

Cheers

after creating the content areas, you need to apply the content areas to the title tag.

in code view, find the title tag and select the current title. then go to Webassist -> CMS -> Insert Content from power CMS. Select the corresponding content group and area.

thanks Jason but I cant do that with a live database as my host only allows FTPS or FTPES connections which DW doesnt support

Basically, would I be right in saying that from what you say, if I have created the meta-title within the About page, the code that would go within the page should be as follows:

<title>
<?php
include('/home/indepheg/public_html/WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'About', 'meta-title', false);
?>
</title>

Would that be right?

Cheers

that looks right, you can double check by going to the developer notes link for the title region on the about us content group.
