<?php WA_manageSEO(); ?>

<?php WA_manageSEO(); ?>

<?php WA_manageSEO(); ?>

What is this code for?

Is it actually for website SEO to improve google rankings, or is it just coincidental that SEO has been used as a name?

If it is for improving the likes of google rankings (page title, keywords and descriptions), then I don't seem to have any correlating database content.

Thanks.

It allows you to manage the the SEO Content for a page using Live Edit IF you have configured the SEO content ares for the page.


Create CMS content areas for a page named:
meta-title
meta-keywords
meta-description

then use those content areas for the title description and keywords tags:

<title><?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'untitled24', 'meta-title', true); ?></title>
<meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'untitled24', 'meta-keywords', true); ?>">
<meta name="description" content="<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'untitled24', 'meta-description', true); ?>">



when you access the page while logged in as admin to trigger live edit, there will be a Manage SEO button allowing you to change the Tile, description, and keywords content for that page.

That's a really cool system!!

I did find - and only saying because it might help the next guy.

I usually just create all of the content areas within the online editor and the use the developer notes to paste in the various areas on the page for content (works way faster).
However if you are going to use the SEO system at least once you need to use the WA "Add Content to PowerCMS" within Dreamweaver or else the needed codes will not be present and the page will not load if you only paste the code block Jason so kindly showed above.

Or just add the code: <?php require_once("WA_CMS/WA_CMS.php"); ?> to the head and <?php WA_manageSEO(); ?> to the body....and of coarse the seo block to the head Jason shows above.

Correct me if I am wrong.

These things are not present in the Help documentation that I could find.

Yes, that is true, if you add the developer notes by hand, you will also need to add the so tag in the body.
