Well, I’ve officially smashed together my first Joomla 1.5 plugin – autoMetaDescSEO – crappy name, I know.
You can get all the details about the plugin at its “official” homepage, but briefly, the plugin simply takes a set chunk of text from the page’s content and slips it into the page’s meta description tag.
This was initially created for a site I was working on that had a number of pages, which I had no intention of hand-inserting meta data for on a article by article basis. This plugin automates the process.
It’s likely full of errors, and may make your computer mate with your printer. I take no liability for their offspring.
