Maybe people don’t know about it.</p> <p>I run a search in a directory with about 200 themes and plugins, half of them have been updated for 2.7, and it only returned two instances, in two plugins by Lester Chan. </p> Ian Stewart on "2 suggestions for 0.9: L10n improvement and an SEO issue" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/2-suggestions-for-09-l10n-improvement-and-a-seo-issue#post-1808 Wed, 25 Feb 2009 17:05:28 +0000 Ian Stewart 1808@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>Thanks!

Thematic is getting better and better!</p> <p>To my suggestions:</p> <p>1. HONOURING CUSTOM DATE FORMAT</p> <p>Thematic does not use the date format set in Dashboard &gt; Settings &gt; General. (I can try and submit a patch for review if you are interested. I’ll just copy the code from a theme I trust, like Sandbox, Simplish, or Tarski.)</p> <p>2. USING AUTOGENERATED EXCERPTS AS META DESCRIPTIONS.</p> <p>If a post/page has no explicit manual excerpt, it may be better to not add a meta description at all. I recently posted a request about this on the HeadSpace forum:</p> <p><a href="http://urbangiraffe.com/support/topic/option-to-disable-autogeneration-of-descriptions-if-there-is-no-manual-excerpt" rel="nofollow">http://urbangiraffe.com/support/topic/option-to-disable-autogeneration-of-descriptions-if-there-is-no-manual-excerpt</a></p> <p>Note the Matt Mullenweg quote. It is interesting.</p> <p>See also:</p> <p>The manual Excerpt in WordPress. What, why, how, tips and plugins<br /> <a href="http://op111.net/67" rel="nofollow">http://op111.net/67</a></p> <p>I did a little research on the subject while writing this and, while there is no way to tell, other than extensive testing, I tend to believe that AUTO-generated meta descriptions are not a good idea.</p> <p>Cheers,<br /> -dk </p>
