Ok here's an update 4 days after using the latest version of this extension, mobile search results for our forum is now showing topic image attachments from our threads as search snippets (thanks to this extension). Very cool :mrgreen:

That's not true, Open Graph is enabled by default:

https://github.com/AlfredoRamos/phpbb-e ... on.php#L58

It was tested on live boards before releasing version 1.1.0
Al, do you mind adding the option for us to retain the attachment names in Meta Description please? Just as it was in 1.0.1-RC2?

Meta Description?, I didn't use any bit of that extension, so It won't be the same.

In my extension, they were removed because on a board with multiple images at the start, the description length is occupied mostly by long filenames, which is not ideal.

It's the same for [img] and [url] BBCodes, in fact attachments were not removed before because of an oversight.

If you want to keep them you can do the following modification, make sure you're using the latest version (1.1.0):

File: ext/alfredoramos/seometadata/includes/helper.php
Find and remove:

Code: Select all

		// Remove attachments
		foreach ($xpath->query('//ATTACHMENT') as $node)
		{
			if (empty($node->nodeType) || empty($node->parentNode))
			{
				continue;
			}

			$node->parentNode->removeChild($node);
		}

Thanks Al, that makes sense. I'll do this and test out how the SERPs go and update this thread.

Apologies for wording it incorrectly I actually meant metadata description (as noted in the changelog on page 1 of this thread under 1.1.0-RC1 - 2019-04-05), not meta description extension.

Ok, so everything seems to be fine from my tests and your comments, so I released version 1.1.0, I'm about to send it for validation.

Note: I changed some file names (migrations), so completely uninstall your current version (data then files) before installing the new version, otherwise you might need to manually delete the module ACP_SEO_METADATA.
How do I do that ?

Done ... but it does not work ...
I get this error:
Ein Modul existiert bereits: ACP_SEO_METADATA
(module exists)

It means that you didn't delete the extension data before installing the new version as you said.

To delete it manually:

- Go to the ACP > System
- Module management > Administration Control Panel
- Extensions > Find "ACP_SEO_METADATA"
- Click on the red icon to delete it and confirm

After that you shouldn't have problems installing the new version.

Once it's validated this won't happen again.

THX for that, but I can't find this in my ACP in your described order.
