Upgrade process:

The module SEO Manager is updated at a regular basis. It is fairly intuitive to upgrade the module SEO Manager for Prestashop. Follow the previous installation guide, upload the module archive seomanager.zip. Prestashop will update automatically the module.

 

User guide:

The module generates the meta tags for various pages per languages. As the product pages are probably the most lucrative pages on your website, we focus a lot on those pages. You can generate the SEO fields for many types of pages in the same time. But you cannot generate the module for several languages all at once.

The module allows meta filed content override.

First select a language, click on one of the flags at the top of the page.

Check the box “Override existing product or category meta data” to generate new meta tags for existing meta fields. Today, this option works only for the product and the category pages.

How to generate meta tags for category

The module offers few shortcodes to help you populate the meta fields for the category pages.

The following chapter describes how to select existing meta fields in order to define a boilterplate. The boilerplate is the target template used by the module to generate the meta tags title and description for your category page.

Here is the list of short code available:

CATEGORY_NAME: replaced by the actual category name

CATEGORY_DESC: replaced by the category description text

CATEGORY_NAME_PARENT: replaced by the category parent name

SHOP_NAME: replace by the name of the shop instance. However it is a very lazy/ resource consuming to use this tag as it does not vary per resource page. Please hard code the name of your shop instead. For example, onasus.com rather than {SHOP_NAME}.

 

The previous short codes are available in the drop down list next to the input field. Click on the arrow down to select a short code. Then click on the button ‘Add’ to append the new short code to the meta tag input field.

The module uses a character “-“ between every single new short code. You can remove this character manually. The text box with many blue shapes right under the meta tag input field is the boilerplate that will be applied to a given meta tag. It highlights all the short codes that have been used.

You may just want to empty the input field. Just click on the button ‘Empty’ to reset the boilerplate.

You must tick to box “update categories” to activate the content generation for the category pages on your Prestashop catalogue.

 

Please scroll to the end of the web page, and then hit the button Submit to trigger the meta field generation.

In this web page about the module Prestashop SEO Manager user guide, you have described how to setup or update the module as we release a new version in average once a month. Then you learnt how to generate the meta tags for the category pages.
