Seo plugin for joomla! http://3dwebdesign.org/microformats-seo-votes-for-joomla for joomla is rating plugin, but with microformats, microdata and rdf support.

Цитат
Now you can have votes where you want in Joomla - you have option to have ratings in content, in categories and in 10 of most popular joomla components. You can disable on selected pages only votes or you can disable plugin in general anywhere. In package are plugins for Joomla 3.0, for Joomla 2.5/1.7 and for Joomla 1.5! Plugin is multilanguage - English, Czech, German, French and Bulgarian language files in archive.


Important note: known issues for versions to v.3.6
1. If there is com_ZOO installed and the Widgetkit ZOO system plugin is enabled, the users will not be able to vote as MFV (and every other plugin, which relies on AJAX calls to files, not residing in the root directory) ceases to function. Details on this topic may be found http://3dwebdesign.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=713&view=findpost&p=4798.

Цитат
If you have com_zoo and you want to work with our plugin, just switch off "Widgetkit ZOO system plugin".

2. "Microformats votes" not work in combination with "Mootools Upgrade" system plugin!

Microformats votes plugin is updated - Joomla 1.7 version is now here!

Now in package are Three plugins - one for Joomla 1.7/1.6 (content only) and two for Joomla 1.5 - one for content items and one for K2! Joomla 1.7 plugin is only for content!

Today a new version of the plugin is released. Here are the important changes:

- ver. 1.7.3 for J16 and above: A new setting was added which allows the generated content to be placed at a specific position in the article: at the beginning, at the end or inside the article using the {plgMFV} tag. Two new settings are added which allow the plugin generated content to be encapsulated in custom HTML markup thus allowing you a great freedom in styling your rating system.

- ver. 1.5.3 for J15: A new setting was added which allows the generated content to be placed at a specific position in the article: at the beginning, at the end or inside the article using the {plgMFV} tag. Two new settings are added which allow the plugin generated content to be encapsulated in custom HTML markup thus allowing you a great freedom in styling your rating system.

- ver. 1.5.3 for K2 on J15: A new setting was added which allows the generated content to be placed at a specific position in the article: at the beginning, at the end or inside the article using the {plgK2MFV} tag. A new setting is added which controls the place where the plugin generated content is added: in the introtext or in the fulltext. A bug was fixed which prevented the display of the content rating stars when the introtext is not shown.

Extension is updated again. Latest changes:

Now we have http://3dwebdesign.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=971 also.

Posted by: Ivan Stamenov Mar 30 2012, 08:02 AM

The next version of the plugin (ver. 2.0.0) has just been released for both Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6-2.5.

The most important changes:

Common changes in the versions for J1.5 and J1.6-2.5

1. When installed, the plugin's tables are populated with the existing votes from the following components:



2. When a vote is submitted through the microformatsvotes plugin, it is stored in the relevant component's database too. So if you uninstall the plugin, the components voting system will reflect the votes' actual state (the votes won't be lost).

Note: This is not entirely true for Virtuemart, versions above 1.1.9, however, as it uses a voting system which is fundamentally different then ours.
The J1.5 version comes with the logic for Virtuemart 1.1.9. It works fine.
The J1.6-2.5 version comes with the logic for Virtuemart 1.9.8G. On install it imports the existing votes into the plugin with no problem. It updates the voting summary table in Virtuemart, but it might not be able to import a record for the voting itself in the voting records table due to an existing unique key constraint (in Virtuemart only the registered users are allowed to vote only once per product. MicroformatsVotes might allow all users to vote multiple times per every item.). So the updating behaviour in Virtuemart is disabled by default. If you want to enable it, go to /plugins/content/microformatsvotes/ and open ajax.php Uncomment the lines between 120 and 136 and delete the ToDo line.

3. In com_content and Mosets Tree you may disable the MicroformatsVotes on a per article basis by setting the relevant show_votes article setting to HIDE. You may do this in K2 when using the MFV in Joomla 1.6-2.5 as well, but it doesn't work in K2 for Joomla 1.5.

4. There are changes in the code for the Mosets Tree component, so you are advised to read the install instructions carefully. Basically now the MFV may run in Mosets Tree without the need to modify any of the MTree's core files. If you choose to do so (modify the files) you have to turn on the Modified MTree MFV setting in the plugin's parameters in order to avoid the display of the rating stars multiple times in the viewed listing.

Changes in the version for Joomla 1.5 only

1. The check_db plugin setting has been automated. The necessary tables are created and populated the first time the plugin is invoked. This function is run only once.

2. The MFV plugin now works in K2 too.

Posted by: Web Design Seo Apr 5 2012, 03:43 PM

Now Microformats votes work with SobiPro. Guide is included in archive of plugin.

Are added video guides for rich snippets from Google Webmaster channel in Youtube also.

Posted by: Ivan Stamenov Jun 7 2012, 09:01 AM

A new version of the plugin (J1.5 and J1.6-2.5) is released today.

1. A new setting is added: Google+ ID. If set, an authorship info will be added to every page the MFV plugin fires on. You need to add the relevant info in your Google+ account as well.
2. Added functionality: The anonymous users may vote only once per item (based on the anonymous user's IP).
3. The plugin is now updateable. You do not need to uninstall the previous version in order to install the new one any more.


IMPORTANT information for Joomla 1.5 version:
Go to the admin panel => plugins => MFV => settings of plugin and switch on the Check DB option. It will be reset to NO automatically by the update script.

A few parameters has been added to the MicroformatsVotes tag, which now has the following format:

{plgMFV [novote] [item_id] [context]}

The parameters in square brackets are optional and may be given in random order, case-insensitive.
Note that the plgMFV keyword IS case sensitive!

[novote]: if present, the rating info will be shown, but the users will not be able to vote
[item_id]: the ID of the item to be voted for.

Here are some examples:

{plgMFV} - the tag merely marks the place where the rating info will be displayed
{plgMFV novote} - display the current item's rating info, does not allow voting by the users

Plugin is updated, new v.3.1.1 is here. Updated are both versions - for Joomla 1.5 and for Joomla 2.5.

com_component[:disabled_view[=disabled_layout1,disabled_layout2,...]]

E.g.:

Код

Now you can have votes where you want in Joomla - you have option to have ratings in content categories and in 10 of most popular joomla components. You can disable only votes or you can disable plugin in general only on selected page.

IMPORTANT NOTE (for the users of the Joomla 1.5 version of the plugin): after the plugin has been updated, go to the plugin's settings and set the "Check DB Table" option to "Yes". It will be automatically switched back to "No" after the plugin creates and updates the DB tables it depends on. If you fail to do this the plugin may not work properly.

The plugin is now updated so that the code snippet is no longer offset when using Microdata (the -25000px are gone). A fourth rich snippets format is added - Microdata [new schema], which uses the current microdata schema (read more at schema.org), However, somewhat better results are achieved with the Microdata [old schema] rich snippets (at least in the Google's testing tool)...

Posted by: Web Design Seo Oct 26 2012, 11:50 AM

@.band1+, website from your example is with stars working and this is joomla website with our Microformats plugin. I see in html code that there is exact "-25000px" css, and is working.

Anyway, new version of Microformats votes is here. Are updated both versions - for Joomla 1.5 and for Joomla 2.5.

Added are new "meta tags in body" options to show meta tags in html body. Update is related to http://3dwebdesign.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=740&view=findpost&p=4523.

These options are only for microdata - microdata old schema and microdata "new schema".

Example html5 code on product page:

Код
<span itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">
<meta itemprop="brand" content="onlinemerchant" />
<meta itemprop="name" content="Pro PHP Security - 1590595084" />
<meta itemprop="url" content="http://onlinemerchant/index.php?Products&pro_php_security" />
<meta itemprop="productID" content="upc:1" /><meta itemprop="image" content="http://onlinemerchant/public/products/product_info/pro_php_security.jpg" /><meta itemprop="description" content=".... my product description" />
<span itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Offer">
<meta itemprop="price" content="44.99" />
<meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="USD" />
<link itemprop="availability" href="http://schema.org/InStock" />
<span itemprop="seller">
<span itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">
<meta itemprop="name" content="onlinemerchant" />
<meta itemprop="url" content="http://onlinemerchant/index.php" />
</span>
</span>
</span>
<span itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/AggregateRating">
<meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Pro PHP Security - 1590595084" />
<meta itemprop="ratingValue" content="0" />
<meta itemprop="bestRating" content="5" />
<meta itemprop="worstRating" content="1" />
<meta itemprop="ratingCount" content="0" />
</span>
</span>


You can see live example in frontpage of http://3dwebdesign.org/ also, this html code come from Microformats votes:
Код
<div class="plgmfv-box">(334 votes, average 4.84 out of 5)</div></div><span itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Review-aggregate"><meta itemprop="itemreviewed" content="Web design Seo, development of Seo extensions for Joomla" /><span itemprop="rating" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Rating"><meta itemprop="average" content="4.84" /><meta itemprop="best" content="5" /><meta itemprop="worst" content="1" /></span><meta itemprop="votes" content="334" /></span><br style="clear:both" />

Well, it seems that MFV (and every other plugin, which relies on AJAX calls to files, not residing in the root directory) ceases to function when there is com_ZOO installed and the Widgetkit ZOO system plugin is enabled.

As the base dir of the called URL does not coincide with the site root, Widgetkit ZOO causes PHP to die with:

Цитат
Fatal error: Class 'systemHelper' not found in /home/*******/public_html/administrator/components/com_zoo/framework/classes/app.php on line xxx


After a quick search in Google for "joomla class systemHelper" (surprisingly the top results were ZOO related), the following emerged (the user's problem is exactly the same):
Код
http://www.jms2win.com/en/forum/25-extensions-compatibility/8183-zoo-2416-inluding-all-apps-and-tools?lang=en#8215

Цитат("some user")
Hi,
I have contacted Zoo support and they have looked the problem in my website. After they look it, the response was this:
Цитат("Zoo support")
well, there is a problem that is not easy to fix. ZOO actually makes sure that you don't get out of your Joomla root dir. I am uncertain as to how the Multisite extension works exactly, but I guess it is setting the Joomla root directory and thereby confuses the ZOO. But it seems other components like com_extplorer are having trouble there too.

Plugin is updated, new v.3.1.1 is here. Updated are both versions - for Joomla 1.5 and for Joomla 2.5.

Now a layout filter may be added to the Disabled views setting. The format is:

com_component[:disabled_view[=disabled_layout1,disabled_layout2,...]]

E.g.:

CODE
com_content:category=blog


disables the plugin in option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog.


Now you can disable plugin on only on blog view of category pages and is possible to have microformats in categories.
Example: http://3dwebdesign.org/en/website-optimization/
http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http%3A%2F%2F3dwebdesign.org%2Fen%2Fwebsite-optimization%2F

To achieve look of your categories like this in Google, use in plugin configuration -> disabled views option:
CODE
com_content:category=blog;



Hello,

I was wondering how to exclude some articles from showing the snippets. It seems that I have to put something in the "disabled views" but I can't figure out what exactly.

For example, I would like to remove the view in this url and similar ones:

index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=269&id=249&lang=en&view=article

Thanks!

IN product description is this example:

Цитат
{plgMFV virtuemart.product 3 nodisplay} - the rating info for the Virtuemart product with ID 3 will be not displayed and users will not be able to vote for this product.


You can do this only with tag nodisplay - post {plgMFV nodisplay} in article content. You have option to use tag plgMFV in plugin configuration.

He, first thanks for nice component smile.gif i was looking for this for long.

Could you please help me exclude k2 item list in category view from showing stars. Please see url:

Hi 3D Web Design,

I just purchased the plugin today. It was easy to install and configure and stars appeared on my pages right away. However, when I test the page in Google's Data Testing Tool - no stars.

My Google authorship is shown, as are my Google breadcrumbs, but no stars. I tried all the rich snippet options available in the settings, but no stars.

Here is the link that I've been testing with:

Код
http://www.rockstarweekly.com/Concert-Reviews/steve-michaels-brings-realistic-elvis-christmas-concert-to-guelph.html

Can you advise what to do.

When I get this working, this will be the best plugin that I've ever added to my Joomla install and I will purchase for my clients as well.

FYI, my Joomla install is 2.5.8.

Thanks,

Dan

Posted by: Web Design Seo Feb 11 2013, 07:21 AM

Dan, is plugin working? I recommend you to use "microdata old schema" and vote permission: public. Now votes are for registered only. You must have at least 2 votes for this item to test it in Google's rich snippets testing tool.

Posted by: Ivan Stamenov Feb 14 2013, 07:13 AM

Version 4.0 for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 is released today.

As of version 4.0, the MicroFormatsVotes plugin (aka MFV) is now a system one. It is completely revised and has its settings system almost completely rebuilt. Its database structure remains unchanged (it uses the same SQL tables as the content MFV), so no information will be lost if you upgrade from a previous (content plugin) version.



In the config/examples/ subdirectory there are "ready to use" INI files for the following components:



----------------
Fast install, short guide:
1) Install the plugin
2) Enable the plugin
3) Open plugins/system/microformatsvotes/config/examples/com_content.ini via FTP
4) Copy ini files to /plugins/system/microformatsvotes/config
5) Edit .ini file parameters, this part:
Код
[RUN]
view = article
#layout =
#task =
id_par = id
context = com_content.article
#skip
stars = 1
novote = 1
position = after </h2>
HTML_before = <div style="clear:both;margin:7px 0">
HTML_after = </div>


All of these parameters are described in manual file and the most important part is:
Код
position = after </h2>


This mean position where stars will be inserted. Plugin search for tag </h2> and insert stars after this tag (you must have h2 tag on page). If in HTML code of your pages are not present h2 tags, change </h2> with some other tag.

6. Delete the settings cache files manually when doing changes in the INI settings (such a need should arise very rarely).
----------------

How to show stars and votes on homepage?

In most of Joomla websites homepage of website is probably frontpage view. You need to activate frontpage view in your ini file. If your frontpage menu is something like this (clik on edit menu in admin to check):
Код
index.php?option=com_content&view=featured

you need to actvate in your ini file:
Код
view = featured


How to show stars on categories pages?
you need to actvate in your ini file:
Код
view = category


If category page is blog view:
Код
layout = blog
view = category



Цитат
And don't forget to change novote = 1 (mean no votes allowed) to novote = 0 (mean votes are allowed) and to delete again the settings cache files smile.gif


More details, regarding the update from versions before 4.0 and the INI files structure (step by step example included), are contained in the user manual:  manual.pdf ( 142.12K ) : 56

Next part is the field: .entry' but there isnґt a field enty


Sobi2 and sobi pro are 2 different extensions. And integration with other components is "as guide". Plugin is made mainly for content, k2 and virtuemart.

Newest version that support every joomla component over configuration of ini file is already uploaded in our website. Note that custom configuration from us for other components than com_content now cost additional payment (5 USD per component).

But what must be ini for virtuemart category page?

stars = 1
novote = 0
position = after <div  class="category_description">

Its doesn`t work. Where is mistake?

stars = 1
novote = 0
position = after <div  class="category_description">

migors, our extension give you control to place stars where you want. You can place stars probably on more than 50 places in your template and only 2-3 will be right and will not generate w3c validation errors. But thie right place can be find only by you.

In extension price is not included custom configuration for every single user and custom configuration for every template and w3c validation.

Posted by: migors Aug 1 2013, 09:20 AM

I don't want custom configuration just support. I can not find any documentation on how to place your plugin in module or what is right place for your plugin and normal user manual is welcomed. I still don,t understand how to make plugin work on featured content. with old one it was just clear from forum posts and i did not asked single question.

Plugins work in content, not in modules! This plugin can not be inserted inside module position.

The right place to place stars for us is exactly after title of content item. Is not about money, we don't have enough people and we don't have possibility to work with more than 3-4 support tickets daily.

Hmm..
its not working. installed, published the plugin and no stars there.
have not edit the ini files-
joomla3 and v4, sef on.

i want to show it in the content, what did i do wrong?
is there a possibility with a {plgMFV}? or how can i view the stars?

Posted by: Web Design Seo Oct 22 2013, 08:38 AM

{plgMFV} tag is for old version only. In new version you must configure where to show code snippet on page.

After no voting stars appears and nothing is changed, I've also tried to delete my browser's cache and I've tried to see if something is changed with the google structured data testing tool.. nothing.. I think that I've made some mistakes:

I haven't got any voting system included in my site because I thought your plugin included this voting feature: have I to activete a voting system like Top Extra Vote or simply Joomla's voting system option for show the stars in Google with your plugin?
Ps I would like to include micro formats vote in com_content (all the articles)
Thanks a lot for your support

There is no need to activate standart Joomla voting system and voting system like Top Extra Vote. You must switch on only our plugin.

I see your steps 1 to 4 and you write that you clear your browser cache. But is cleared settings cache or not?

Цитат
The only downside is, that you have to delete the settings cache files manually when doing changes in the INI settings (such a need should arise very rarely).

How do I have to read this? It seems a little misleading

Latest version of plugin is v.4.0.1, updated on 10 February 2014. Added is Joomla 3.0 support (content and K2 only), Joomgallery, Adsmanager, K2, Mosets Tree, JDownloads, Sobi2, SobiPro, Kunena, Virtuemart, Zoo (only version of Zoo for joomla 2.5) and Agora support (only version of Agora for joomla 1.5), disabled views option, option to add microformats snippet at start, at end or inside content.

I bought the program for SobiPro.


Posted by: Web Design Seo Jun 25 2014, 02:30 PM

Yes, at moment on writing of these guides (on 10 February 2014), this was true. But updating our extension for All these extensions - all the time, for evey new update will be work on 8hours/7days only on this extension.

And with this reason, to product is added warning text about stopping of updating of all these guides all the time - "integration with other components is provided only as guide" - without warranty. This text is added also to documentation page - first post in the same topic: http://3dwebdesign.org/forum/microformats-seo-plugin-for-rich-snippets-in-joomla-t713

Now I want to run Joomla in SEF modus. But the plugin seems only work with SEF off. What changes do I have to make working with SEF?

Posted by: Web Design Seo Jun 27 2014, 08:07 AM

Where you have read this: "seems only work with SEF off" ??? Plugin work with both SEF and non-sef urls.

Posted by: Simpel Jun 27 2014, 08:19 AM

Well for me the sobipro works with Joomla SEF off. When SEF is on. The stars dissapears in front.
maybe it has got something to do with ?

view = {the required view value, if any}
task = {the required task value, if any}
layout = {the required layout value, if any}

Because I use only option = sobipro. The sobipro link got no view,taks or layout... as you can see in my other post.

Unfortunately not with sobipro. I miss the support since last week.... How does your plugin gets the right page when sef is on in joomla?

Okay I test it with Joomla 2.5 and an earlier version of Sobipro. Same problem. SEF off it works so far.. SEF on no stars at all.
The plugin can't find the position where to put the HTML before and after. It seems your plugin can't find the right page with SEF on.

Let me know how to solved. Otherwise this plugin is useless for me.

Цитат(Simpel @ Jul 2 2014, 11:54 PM) *

You can try something.
Open file "\plugins\system\microformatsvotes\microformatsvotes.php" and go to line 35.
Find
Код
$exec = FALSE;

and replace it with
Код
$exec = TRUE;

By hardcoding it to true plugin will skip view, task and layout checks.

Go to line 32
find
Код
$view = $this->jinput->get('view');

Replace with
Код
$view = ($component == 'com_sobipro') ? 'any' : $this->jinput->get('view');

Here you will hardcode view to "any" for com_sobipro.
Save and upload file.

In your com_sobipro.ini file put
Код
[RUN]
view=any
context = com_sobipro.any

Save and upload.

Delete the \plugins\system\microformatsvotes\config\cache\com_sobipro.dat file (to rebuild the settings) and refresh the page.

Tell me if this works for you!

Joomla CMS routing is based on view, task and layout parameters.
If "sobipro" works in different way this is not by our fault.
I can't change plugin just because "sobipro" is decided not to follow joomla conventions(right or wrong).
If sobi wants to work in different way, they should provide consistency layer in their component.

Posted by: Simpel Jul 3 2014, 01:22 PM

As described before. The stars works with SEF OFF

The link for the sobipro component is:

index.php?option=com_sobipro&pid=177&sid=304:marti&Itemid=53&lang=en

What I did is taken the "pid" and put this into the com_sobipro.ini

So with SEF off your plugin takes com_sobipro and the "pid" from id_par

QUOTE
[RUN]

id_par = pid

context = com_sobipro.pid

stars = 1
novote = 0
position = after </h10>
#HTML_before = <div class= "uk-panel-vote" style="clear:both;margin:9px 0">
HTML_before = <div class= "uk-panel-vote" >
HTML_after = </div>


The problem is SEF ON

As you can see there are no view, task and layout parameters.
$exec = TRUE; or FALSE does not matter for the id_par = pid

So you want to make a view by hardcode? a view to "any" for com_sobipro.

What do you mean by "any"?

Your solution does not work on both sides with or without SEF.

So, You must change in your ini file position to after h1:

After this, http://3dwebdesign.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=713&view=findpost&p=5563, delete cache files located in /config/cache/ folder.

zenon abdalla, the problem is in your ini file:

Код
http://zenon-portretschilderen.nl/plugins/system/microformatsvotes/config/examples/com_content.ini


Problem is in parameter:
Код
novote = 1


This mean no votes allowed!

Change it to:
Код
novote = 0


Цитат
And don't forget to delete cache files!



Check also plugin configuration, votes must be allowed and public:
Show stars: Yes.
Access level: Public.

Hallo,

i want to change languge, where i can do it
??in wich file??

thanks

Posted by: Web Design Seo Nov 16 2015, 07:18 AM

You must create language file for your language and to place file in:

Код
public_html/language/


For example file must be:
Код
/public_html/language/nl-NL.plg_system_microformatsvotes.ini


Take one file from folder "languages" inside plugin zip, rename it, translate it and upload file in joomla folder: /public_html/language

This is not problem, code is ok. Google is slow. And one more thing: there is no warranty that Google will show any site with stars.

For now you can see results from your site in Bing: https://www.bing.com/search?q=site%3Azenon-portretschilderen.nl

Hi,
I just bought your plugin and I want to use it for rating of products which are placed in modules (its not a shop solution). How is that possible?
I don't want to rate a whole article so it makes no sense to place the stars at the top or end of a page.
I use Joomla 3.4.8
It seems that you have discontinued the shortcode {plgMFV}

How can I use it?


Thanks for your support

Posted by: Web Design Seo Dec 29 2015, 08:47 AM

Yes, shortcode {plgMFV} is for old version - was content plugin. Latest version of microformats votes plugin is system plugin. You can try to parse content plugins in modules with activating option "prepare content" - YES. Option is in "options" tab settings in any Joomla module.

Only version plg_microformatsvotes_v3.6 for Joomla 3.0.zip probably can work with this, but we never test it.

See also https://docs.joomla.org/Triggering_content_plugins_in_your_extension.

That sounds rather difficult (I am not a programmer) and because you don't recommend the use of your old version it seems to make not at lot of sense that I use it.

It seems then that I can not use it sad.gif

Posted by: Web Design Seo Dec 29 2015, 05:17 PM

Sorry, but we can't help you with this. On product description is not described that our extension will work in module. Is written: "is Joomla system plugin".

I check today - there is no solution at all to insert Joomla! system plugin in module. So, you probably need custom solution, with hacks over Joomla core - very risky and not recommended.
