This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Shopp SEO Glue


Important! Please note that this plugin is not actively maintained. No further work is planned and it will not
receive bug fixes. Any developers from the Shopp community interested in taking over the reins and resurrecting this
beast are more than welcome to contact me 🙂

This plugin helps WordPress SEO and Shopp to work together coherently. You can even assign titles and descriptions to
virtual pages such as the cart, checkout and account pages. The current version of Shopp SEO Glue was built against:

  • WordPress 3.8
  • Shopp 1.3
  • WordPress SEO 1.4

If you are using a set of different versions – particularly if you are using older plugins – then please proceed with
caution – the 1.6 release of Shopp SEO Glue will not for instance play nicely with the 1.2.x series of Shopp plugins.

This plugin was written by Barry Hughes
with contributions by Lars Koudal. Support is provided on an hoc basis and checks of the plugin
support forum are infrequent: you might get lucky, but don’t count on it 😉


  • Admin page used to set titles and descriptions for virtual pages such as the checkout and cart pages (this has been added for completeness, as otherwise there is no mechanism to extend SEO control to those pages).

  • You can reach the SEO settings page via Shopp’s Setup menu (followed by the SEO tab).


It’s just like any other plugin!

Either upload the zipped plugin archive using the Add New Plugin screen in WordPress, or unzip and upload the
shoppseoglue directory so that it resides within your wp-content/plugins directory … then activate!

Shopp and WPSEO must both be installed and activated or this plugin will not do anything.


Why do I need this?

Shopp uses custom post types and custom taxonomies, it’s true, but it does not use the standard WordPress-generated post
and taxonomy editors. For that reason, WordPress SEO has a hard time integrating with Shopp. This plugin aims to solve
that problem by doing the legwork needed to make these plugins play nicely with one another.

How can I configure virtual page titles/descriptions?

Navigate to the Shopp Setup admin screen then click on the SEO tab.

How about All in One SEO Pack?

To the best of my knowledge All in One SEO Pack works with Shopp without any problems. Consequently, this plugin does
not integrate with AIOSEOP in any way whatsoever (as there’s no need). If anyone becomes aware of a popular SEO solution
other than WPSEO and feels this plugin ought to cover that, too, then please drop a suggestion into the support forum.

Is this actively maintained … what’s next on the roadmap?

Don’t depend upon it! I rebooted the plugin to coincide with the release of Shopp 1.3. At this time however I tend not
to use WPSEO in my own projects and so this plugin does not occupy the upper strata of my to-do list. With that in mind:

  • If you encounter bugs please do report them and I’ll fix them when I can. If you can fix them yourself (or perhaps
    have a developer do so on your behalf) and submit a diff then that’s even better – it will benefit everybody
  • Remember that this plugin is free and open source – and is provided in the hope that it will be useful, but without
    any warranty

This plugin no longer works since it hasn’t been update to work with the latest version of Shopp, or WordPress. There is an alternative plugin called Shopp SEO that works great.

  • Rebooted for Shopp 1.3, WPSEO 1.4 and WP 3.8

This version will not play nicely with Shopp 1.2 or WPSEO 1.3 … and it may or may not play nicely with WP 3.6.x or earlier

1.5.2 =
* Increased virtual page cover – the catalog frontpage can now be targeted (somehow missed this when I wrote 1.5 initially)


  • Bug fix: inaccessible callback made accessible (thanks to Phil for reporting this bug)


  • Virtual page support: titles and descriptions can now be set for the cart, checkout, confirm, account and thank-you pages.
  • Changes to minimize the potential for incompatibility problems with some themes


  • Shopp-generated description is now removed from category pages
    (thanks: dencreativeltd)
