How To Work With SeoToaster Widgets & Tokens

You must add tokens and widgets for your templates to work with SeoToaster. Those tokens and widgets allow you to add powerful features to your web sites in just a few keystrokes.

You can build your own tokens and widgets; however some tokens and widgets are pre-built for your convenience, and they ship with SeoToaster system.

Tokens are placeholders pulling functionalities and values from the database, and write these functionalities and values in place of the token, and this wherever you position the token within the page or template Those tokens often come as one string:

  • {%%page:title} - brings up the title of your page
  • {%%menu:main} - brings the main HTML menu for your site

Find a complete list of tokens here.

Widgets work the same way than tokens do, except that you can configure them to customize results. They are in effect tokens pulling a configurable functionality instead of a set functionality or value. Those widgets come in the shape of a token with one or more attributes.

  • {%%featured:area:Specials:3:250} - show three pages from a featured area named “Specials”
  • {%%content:XYZ} - allows you to create a container that will accept content for an area called: XYZ.
    By the way, you can add as many content holders as you need.

4 types of main content areas:

  • edit headerEdit Content, at THIS place for THIS page{%%content:param}
  • edit containerEdit content at THIS place and it will show on ALL pages{%%content:param:static}
