2. Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags added

Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags ("og tags")  have been added to the content and blog modules. The 'og tags' are automatically generated from your Meta Title and Descriptions.

Open Graph Meta Tags allow you to control how your website content appears on Facebook.

At this stage, only the Meta Title and Description are displayed. Being able to display a selected image will be rolled out in the next update.

3. FAQ module updated

FAQ module has been updated to run with or without categories.

4. Removed the 'Keywords' meta tag

Search engines no longer use the keyword meta tag.       

We have re-purposed this field and it is now used for 'Canonicals'

5. Added a 'canonicals' tag to content and blog modules

A canonical tag is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL is the original copy of a page. Using the canonical tag prevents the problems caused by duplicate content appearing on multiple web pages.

Note: you will need to add  {{canonical}} to the header of the template
eg. <head> {{canonical} </head>
