Description

Creates semantic sitemaps using the meta keywords or tags!

Plugin: EKS - Easy Keyword Sitemap
Function: With this plugin you may create semantic sitemaps in which articles are grouped by their keywords or tags.
Languages: English and German
Joomla! versions: 2.5 / 3.x

This plugin creates a keyword sitemap controlled by the meta keywords or tags. The articles are categorized and grouped based on matching keywords or tags. The plugin can be limited to specific categories. Each article may show a teaser-text which is composed using the existing meta description. The plugin complies with the actual article restrictions, like access level, state or language settings. You may create various lists. For each sitemap you may display an alpha index for quick navigation. EKS displays only items with at least one existing keyword. Articles using multiple keywords, separated by comma, are as well listed several times at the matching keywords.

Features

  • Creates semantic sitemaps of all articles
  • Articles are grouped by the meta keywords or tags and displayed in a list
  • Plugin is triggered by a simple syntax (see tab "Installation")
  • Plugin is completely controlled by the syntax
  • The sitemap can be restricted to any category
  • A teaser text can be displayed for each entry. The text is generated from the meta description
  • It is possible to display an alphabet bar (Alpha Index). The Alpha Index allows a quick selection of the desired articles.
  • It is possible to create as many sitemaps as you need, also in one single article.
  • Include or exclude keywords / tags
  • Languages: English and German

Installation

Install the plugin in the backend and activate it in "Extensions" - "Plugins" - "Content - Easy Keyword Sitemap"

The plugin is activated and controlled by a special syntax. The plugin itself doesn't need any settings as it is fully controlled through an easy syntax.

Activation without parameters {eks}{/eks}

This is the standard syntax where it does load all categories without displaying alpha index nor teaser text.

Additional parameters:

catid - Catetory IDs to include
teaser - Activate the teaser text which will be extracted from the meta description
alpha - Activate alpha index for easy navigation.
keyword - Only these keywords are included in the sitemap
nokeyword - These keywords are excluded from the sitemap
tags - Tags are used instead of meta keywords for the categorization of articles (only Joomla! 3.x version)

Use the parameters separated by a pipe-symbol '|'. Example for a site map using teaser text, alpha index, tags, including the categories 1, 2, 5 and 2 keywords:

{eks}catid=1,2,5|keyword=blabla,blubb|teaser|alpha|tags{/eks}

Tip: Place the EKS syntax in an empty article, name the article for example "Sitemap" and publish it in your menu.

Note: Articles with no or too many keywords / tags will not generate an optimal sitemap. Articles should be categorized with 1 to max. 3 matching keywords in order to obtain an optimal sitemap!
