SEO meta templates

Extend the SEO capabilities of your site with the SEO templates add-on for cs-cart, using templates for automatically generating meta data for products, pages, categories and etc. You don't need to fill the meta data for every object separately. With this add-on you can create the segments you need and each segment can have their own template for generation. Add-on works in real time, is optimized for work on high-load projects and does not overwrite your previously added meta data. It also allows you to set a template for generating the seo-name for new created objects and adds a section for managing all SEO-names on your site. All templates support smarty syntax, which gives almost unlimited possibilities for creating meta templates, including function calls from php (recommended to use only for advanced users).

SEO Name Management page


Often people contact us with the question: How to find an object that has taken some seo-name? Usually only through direct access to the seo-name table database. But now this can be done using the Meta-templates add-on, in which we have added a section for managing seo-names. You can find objects through their seo-name and directly in this section make changes to seo-names with the ability to add redirects from old links.


For advanced users: Besides variables, meta-templates support smarty syntax. This means you can call both default smarty functions like lower, upper, and call functions from php. Usage example: {"[product_name]"|upper} - this smarty function make all letter to uppercase. {"[product_id]"|fn_get_product_name} - the default cs-cart php function will return product name of specified product. Or use {if}... {/if} smarty construction to show part of template in specific situations.
