To add an SEO plugin in CodeIgniter, follow these steps:

  1. Download an SEO plugin for CodeIgniter. A popular choice is "SEO-Lite" which can be found on GitHub or other CodeIgniter package managers.
  2. Extract the downloaded plugin files.
  3. Copy the extracted files to the appropriate directories in your CodeIgniter project. Typically, you would need to copy the files to the "application" directory.
  4. Open the "application/config/autoload.php" file and add the SEO plugin libraries to the autoload array. For example: $autoload['libraries'] = array('seo_lite');
  5. Open the "application/config/config.php" file and set the "index_page" to an empty string. This removes "index.php" from the URLs and allows the SEO plugin to work properly. Example: $config['index_page'] = '';
  6. Create a new controller for managing SEO-related actions. For example, create a new file called "Seo.php" in the "application/controllers" directory. Define functions for generating meta tags, title tags, etc. and load the plugin's functionality as needed.
  7. Use the functions in the created "Seo.php" controller to generate meta tags, title tags, and other SEO-related content dynamically in your views. For example, in the header view file:
  8. Customize the SEO plugin as per your requirements. Each SEO plugin might have its own configuration and customization options. Refer to the plugin's documentation for more details.


Note: It's important to thoroughly read and understand the documentation provided with the chosen SEO plugin, and make necessary changes to ensure compatibility with your CodeIgniter version.
