Seo plugin for joomla! Microformats seo votes 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 here.

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!

Ivan Stamenov
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 microformats in Virtuemart and Mosets Tree also.
Ivan Stamenov
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:
  • com_content
  • k2
  • Mosets Tree
  • Virtuemart


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.

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.

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.
[context]: the context key 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
{plgMFV 1245 com_content.article} - the rating info for the article with ID 1245 will be displayed. Users will vote for this article too
{plgMFV virtuemart.product 3 novote} - the rating info for the Virtuemart product with ID 3 will be displayed. Users will not be able to vote for this product.
Ivan Stamenov
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.:

Код
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/

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)...

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):

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/
This category page in Rich Snippets Testing Tool

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.

We can't check this right now. Try with this code:

#MicroformatsVotes BOM
        if (JPluginHelper::importPlugin('content','microformatsvotes',true)) {
            $seoparams = new JParameter('');
            $mySobi->mfvtext = $itemData['field_description'];
            JDispatcher::getInstance()->trigger('onBeforeDisplayContent', array(&$mySobi, &$seoparams, 0, '_com_sobipro.entry'));
            $itemData['field_description'] = $mySobi->mfvtext;
            unset($mySobi->mfvtext);
        }

The 3.5 version of the plugin has its JS optimized and some offset divs removed (no hidden display). It is available for Joomla 1.5, 1.6-2.5 and 3.0.

Is recommended to use option "Microdata - old schema"!

I think this here means the database tabe '_com_sobipro.entry')); but in sobi2 they are _com_sobi2
Next part is the field: .entry' but there isnґt a field enty

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

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.

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.

  • The resulting rich snippets code is following the Google's specifications exactly, there are no more hidden items or offsets;
  • The new INI based settings system makes the MFV plugin extremely versatile and easy to extend. 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).
  • The new MFV is not affected by the Joomla's caching system, so you may use it with the Joomla cache enabled;
  • The new MFV may be set to work with every component in your site, you will (most likely) not have to alter component files and PHP code. Basic HTML reading skills are required, though. Or, for a small fee (5 USD per component), we may set it up for you.


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

  • com_content
  • com_k2
  • com_mtree
  • com_virtuemart (may require minor adjustments)


----------------
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: Click to view attachment

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).

Ok, thank you fo update.
But what must be ini for virtuemart category page?
Im trying to use suche code:
CODE
[RUN]

id_par = virtuemart_category_id
context = com_virtuemart.category

stars = 1
novote = 0
position = after <div  class="category_description">
HTML_before = <div style="margin-bottom:7px">
HTML_after = </div>

add itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Product"                 after         <div class="productdetails-view productdetails"
add itemprop="name"                                     after         <h1
add itemprop="image"                                     after         id="medium-image"
add itemprop="offerDetails" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Offer"     after         class="product-price"
#add <meta itemprop="currency" content="UAH" />                        before        <span class="PricesalesPrice"
