Before We Begin...
Before getting started, make sure you have the Web Design and Company Metadata Suite plugin for Joomla. Also, make sure you have Joomla installed correctly. If you don't have Joomla, you can download it here.
Log into the administration panel of your Joomla installation by adding
/administrator/ to the end of the Joomla installation's homepage URL.
Once there, navigate to Extensions >> Manage.
Choose File and choose the tester plugin .zip file that you downloaded from our site for free.
Click "Upload & Install".
You should see a success message as well as instructions on how to continue with the activation and how to use the plugin. Navigate to Extensions > Plugins.
Search for "meta" to narrow the results and then click on the correct plugin's name: "System - Metadata Suite".
Switch the plugin to "Enabled" and save. By default, after the plugin is active, it will remove your generator and author tags. To re-enable both or one, toggle the correct option. You can also designate a custom generator and author by using the text fields.
If you would like to set your Twitter or Facebook to be associated with your Joomla site, enter the username (for Twitter) and page number (for Facebook) in the correct fields. You can also set a banner to be shown by default whenever your pages are shared on social media.
You're finished installing the plugin. If you have any problems with the plugin, see errors, or are unsure how to use the plugin, drop us a line using our contact page and we would be happy to help you out.
