DMS 2 SEO Info

4 posts in this topic

I have the Yoast SEO plugin for wordpress. Because of the DMS2 framework on the frontend I did all the SEO information in the backend wordpress page setup, partly because the plugin doesn't read the information on the framework. What I want to know is, because the SEO is essentially hidden will the website be taken off search engines. And is there an accordion style segment or plugin I can use with the wordpress content segment so I can have it on the page but colapsible?

I am not sure what you're referring to when you say "What I want to know is, because the SEO is essentially hidden will the website be taken off search engines." Can you go into greater detail as to what you mean please.


DMS includes an accordion shortcode which you can use in pages and posts, you can find more information here -


If this isn't to your liking, you will want to search the WordPress plugin repository for a plugin version.

There are a lot of articles talking about hidden text, and state things like, "Google will likely either ignore that text and negate the effects of placing it or may even penalize your site for having that text placed in a manner which violates their terms of service." or that a site will be banned from other seach engines. The way everything's setup all the SEO info is underneath the framework, and not visible. Do you know if this is an exceptable method or will it end up violating some search engines terms of service.

The Yoast SEO plugin (best one by the way) analyses your page/post content, it will not work with sections such as Masthead etc.. However, the Googlebot along with other bots will see your page text only and your sections are text so it will them too.

    • Extensions as plugins = Plugins chaos. Some suggestions.
      By butcher+
      I was present at online google meeting and I already then I was expressing my concerns. I agree to some point they could be better as plugins but...
      1. Installing extensions as plugins right now is kinda annoying dont you think ? You have to install it one by one, in a new window. Should be install All option ! A must have. The also could be categorized to some groups with the same Install whole group option.
      2. Having another 20+ plugins in your plugin list creates a messy and long list... Its a good idea with Pagelines plugins sub category, but IF we cant avoid extensions as plugins they shouldnt be connected with all the rest on a default list.
      Please rethink it and consider my suggestions.
      Anyone from Beta testers having similar feelings ?

      Is there no longer access to some of the plugins, even with the developer account?
    • SEO: Content in Pagelines sections vs. content written in WordPress
      By mnagillum
      Hi, is it true that content written in PageLines sections (textbox, PLnextbox, mediabox) doesn't show up in search engines? I am getting that impression. If that's the case, isn't this a significant flaw in PageLines?
      If true, can I place the same text in the box provided for writing on the WordPress dashboard in an effort to improve SEO? Can I actually place better, more SEO-friendly text in the WordPress box, since that text doesn't appear on my site but search engines would be looking for it? Is there any reason not to try this?
      Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    • Certain Plugin Updates Overriding DMS Sections
      By flourishdesignstudio+
      I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
      Original: (authored by @ellenmva)
      Replaced with:
      Original: (authored by Evan Mattson)
      Replaced with:
      I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.
