SEO Page Title form field?

  1. mcdarwin

    I have succesfully installed 1.2 Beta and build a form with the post title, body and category.

    Is it possible to have a form field that contains the browser page title (or "title tag")? Currently the page title contains the post title, but I would like to have complete control of the page title,

    Will this require installing for example All in One SEO Pack, or how would I accomplish this?

    GF is a GREAT plugin by the way, very useful features and a very user friendly interfaces !!

  2. WordPress doesn't do this out of the box. You would have to accomplish this using custom fields and custom code, or by using a plugin like All In One SEO Pack.

    I am not completely familiar with how All In One SEO stores information, but I believe it stores them as custom fields. If that is the case you could create a custom field that uses the appropriate key name that All On One SEO uses for the page title and you could populate it using Gravity Forms that way.

    I will contact Michael Torbert and see if this is how All In One SEO stores it's data, if it is then I can find out from him what the key is for the custom field for the Post Title used in the Title tag.

  3. Just did some digging into All In One SEO.

    It uses the meta key "_aioseop_title" for the title uses in the title tag of the page for SEO purposes.

    If you were to add a custom field to your form and for the custom field name use "_aioseop_title" (without the quotes) then this would populate the necessary custom field that All In One SEO uses for the page title.

    Brilliant - it works!

    I tested this an can confirm that with the All in One SEO Pack plugin installed the form can set the browser page title (title tag) with a custom field named:


    And the meta description is: _aioseop_description

    Meta keywords (if anyone still cares) is: _aioseop_keywords

    This is so cool - thanks!

  5. Glad to see it worked for you, I tested it myself before mentioning it and worked fine for me also. Pretty cool. Just one more way how you can integrate Gravity Forms with other plugins.
