1.4.4 - 2013-05-16

  • Fixed use of function that was deprecated in EE 2.6.1

1.4.3 - 2013-04-19

  • Replace &nsbp; and in all tag parameters with normal whitespace (since EE will remove space at the beginning of a parameter people are using or - we replace these with a standard space)

1.4.2 - 2013-02-19

  • Bugfix for using SEO Lite as a tag pair inside an exp:channel:entries loop - use {exp:seo_lite:pair} now - ie. {exp:seo_lite:pair entry_id="{entry_id]"} Meta: {meta_description}{/exp:seo_lite:pair}
  • Added support for hiding the keywords field (use $config['seolite_show_keywords_field'] = 'n'; in config/seolite.php. This can also be overridden in a master config if you use that)
  • Support for Publisher
  • Bugfix: if the client used soft-hypen tag in the title (­) it would display in the browser title as the tag
  • Made {entry_title} available as a tag (no title prefix/postfix etc.)
  • Fixed so that won't be included in the title (if it is used in default_postfix)
  • Bugfix: there was a regression bug where using the "category_url_title" parameter would not work

1.3.6 - 2012-09-18

  • Fixed bug where pagination segment would be duplicated in the "canonical_url" tag on pagination pages (ie. /P4). This seems to have been introduced recently (2.5.x+?)

1.3.5 - 2012-02-23

  • Increased the size of the "default_keywords" and "default_description" fields to 1024 in the database

1.3.4 - 2011-12-19

  • Added support for config override of publish tab title (e.g. $config['seo_lite_tab_title'] = 'SEO';)

1.3.3 - 2011-10-14

  • Fixed bug where {canonical_url} would be blank on standard channel entries

1.3.2 - 2011-09-27

  • Changed constructor name

1.3.1 - 2011-09-02

  • Fix for canonical URLs on pages / structure pages

1.3 - 2011-08-30

  • Added support for category_url_title for fetching titles/descriptions of categories (for use as seo metadata)
  • Added support for using seo_lite as a tag pair (if done the template won't be used, good for overriding etc.)
  • Fixed minor bug in backend where the instructions would not hide after clicking view/hide

1.2.5 - 2011-03-18

  • French language file added
  • Renamed language key "welcome" to "seo_lite_welcome" as this sometimes confliced with other modules who used the same language key

1.2.4 - 2011-02-23

This update includes database changes and requires that you visit the module in the backend (EE will then automatically run the update script).)

  • htmlspecialchars() all metadata before output (there were problems with the use of quotes etc. in default description)
  • Increased size of the default keywords / descripton to 1024 chars
  • Changed coltype of default_title_postfix to VARCHAR(60) instead of CHAR(60) (char would strip trailing space, thus the need for .. that's no longer needed)

1.2.3 - 2011-02-21

  • Added support for {canonical_url} for use in the SEOLite template like this:
  • Added 'ignore_last_segments' parameter which tells SEO Lite to ignore the X last url segments (ie. 2 would be logical for URL: entries/some_entry_here/sort/asc)
  • Improved support for pages - the "Pages URI" will now override "URL Title"
  • Minor change in how the "title_postfix" parameter works - the default postfix (specified in admin) will now always be added after this
