In a recent website-project i had a WordPress Blog running next to the main CMS Silverstripe, handling the Blog-part of the site.
Integrating the Blog in Silverstripe (which indeed would have made things simpler) was not an option at the time. The usage of loads of WordPress plugins would’ve made a rewrite a major task, which was out of the budget.
The blog was integrated in the same page layout as the rest of the website. So ideally it would at least share the same Templates for header, footer etc. and would integrate the sites navigation built by Silverstripe.
If you want to rename a menu item in the SilverStripe Admin Area, because f.e. you find “Security” or “Sicherheit”(since we are german ;)) a too harsh wording and you prefer “Members” or “Benutzer”:
simply override the translation!
Add a lang folder in your project folder and add the language file:
de.yml or en.yml and place your wording:
A common site type that we build are portfolio pages
which mostly get filled once in the beginning and then only periodically, rather rarely.
They also have almost never User interaction from the Frontend.
So we consider them as almost “readonly” sites.
These sites you can easily speed up “dramatically” with the SilverStripe builtin StaticPublisher.
The tweaks you need for this are moderate to easy.
First off some general thoughts on how to use opengraph metatags.
Since the uprise of Social Media, sharing sites, deeplinking and snippetting content has become a important aspect of SEO and so almost every site has some kind of facebook-like-button to let user easily share the page.
Most sharing endpoints, facebook f.e, bring a more or less good parser/linter to summarize the page content. So the first text paragraph will be taken as text snippet and all images that fit certain requirements will be offered to chose a preview-thumbnail from.
So far so good. Continue reading “Opengraph MetaTags in SilverStripe”
