Power SEO an OctoberCMS Plugin

Please note that this plugin was originally created by AnandPatel, however after 2 years of no support and many issues with the plugin, we have taken over the plugin development and maintain it under a new repository. This new version fixes the server errors in the old plugin.

Supports RainLab.Blog, RainLab.StaticPage and Standard CMS Pages

Migration from AnandPatel.SeoExtension

  1. Backup Blog Posts - The fields added by AnandPatel.SeoExtension are renamed and prefixed with powerseo_ in the migrations, which might fail on some servers if the right extensions aren't installed.
  2. Install SureSoftware.PowerSEO
  3. Remove AnandPatel.SeoExtension

As all the syntax for the components are same for the AnandPatel.SeoExtension, to upgrade you only need to remove the AnandPatel.SeoExtension plugin and add SureSoftware.PowerSEO. All settings and component parameters should be migrated across.
