Another video in the post editing series where I talk about how to add youtube videos to your b2evolution blog posts.
This is the first in a series on editing posts in b2evolution. This is a beginner video that explains how to add links to posts when not using the WYSIWYG editor.
This is a really simple plugin that is probably redundant now that most browsers will pick up a favicon if it is in the root of your site but I have had this in my dev folder for quite a while so I thought I better get round to releasing it. Basically all it does is put the correct html code in the header of your skin to point to you favicon. It can be useful if you want to keep your favicon file in a different folder that the root of your site.
Download the Favicon Plugin, upload it to your plugins folder and install it via the Global Settings tab. Read the readme file and update your settings. Post a comment here with any questions.
I have to say up front that my skill with languages is very poor. It is something I have struggled with since I was at school when I sat in my French exam blankly staring at the examiner who was expecting me to impress him with some fluent expression of how nice the weather was (or something like that - I have blanked most of it out of my mind). However, one thing that I am pretty good at is testing and tracking different things on my sites.
If you have any kind of analytics package installed on your b2evolution blog, you will probably have more data than you know what to do with about how many visitors come to your site, how long they stay and the pages they visit etc. One of the things that interests me is looking at where the visitors to my site are coming from and Google Analytics has a very nice map overlay allowing you to pinpoint geographically where your visitors access your website from. You can also click on the map and drill down even further to individual cities and towns which is great if you are looking to target specific regions with any of your SEO effort.
This question was sent to me via email and asked “How do I add unique meta description tags in b2evolution?”. You can either watch the video which shows you step by step how to do this or follow along by reading the post below the video.
Before we go into the specifics of how you manage your meta description tags in b2evolution it is important to say what they are and why you would want them in your HTML pages.
