subcategory / subposts titles & SEO
Firstly thank you very much for making this plugin, it's just what I was looking for.
I am trying to create a q and a forum for students https://studywise.co.uk/questions/ , I have structured the forum with natural subcategories, high level to low level, ie A-Level -> Maths -> AQA (gives A-Level Maths AQA forum) or A-Level -> Chemistry -> AQA (gives A-Level Chemistry AQA forum)
The issue is that the title and seo title for the topic is then simply 'AQA', not 'A-Level Maths AQA' or 'A-Level Chemistry AQA' which is bad for SEO + the page title isn't strictly correct. Naming the titles fully would make the parent categories unnecessarily longwinded and messy.
Is there a way to set the title of the topic page, that displays on the topics own page, to be different to the text link to the topic that displays on it's parents page? It would be great if there was a tick box option to concatenated parent titles with child titles? Is there a way to do it manually for now?
Thank you hphi,
I'm sorry but I didn't follow you. How can a plugin know what means the AQA and extend it? You should use the extended form of this title to have SEO friendly title.
Also I see wpForo has a conflict with your SEO plugin, it shows the same Meta title for all pages. Please deactivate the SEO plugin your use to find the reason. if you don't use SEO plugins then this is other plugins or the theme issue.
Hi Robert, just to explain a bit more, A-Level ( is the highest level), there are numerous a levels a level biology, chemistry, maths etc (subjects) (which are the 2nd level) and for each subject there are 3 types of exam papers for the 3 different exam boards we have in the uk (lowest level).
An easier to understand example, would be a business forum with countries as the high level, sectors as the second level and subsectors as the lowest level. For example UK > Technology > Wordpress. It seems silly having to have UK > UK Technology > UK Technology Wordpress display on main parent page (obviously Technology, under category 'UK' is UK technology, no need to repeat). For large forums with categories this gets unnecessarily longwinded and messy.
On seo, thanks for checking, I use yoast and I can't see the issue with the meta. They are displaying the title but I have repeats due to the issue explained above.
Hi Robert, any update on this?
Ok, thank you for detailed explanation. As far as i see you just need a full tree of titles in SEO. At the moment only the latest subForum is included in form name part. We'll take this under consideration and work on this in future releases, but I'm sorry there is no way to do this with current version.
