Great Extension Works great on Magento CE 1.8.1, installs with no problems and also use Yoast Canonical extension. February 21, 2014
Messed up my whole site I installed this and all my pages except my home page got errors. I then uninstalled it and then couldn't even access the admin login! Once I got everything working - or so I thought - I found out Yoast added a System Attribute that didn't remove! So then I couldn't edit ANY of my products. Going the long way around through PHPMyAdmin to delete the attribute now. I won't be installing any more Yoast products. September 24, 2013
Works in I downloaded it using freegento.com and installed it no problem. Working fine and applys NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW etc to any page in the pages settings. great extension! :) August 9, 2013
Not Compatible with 1.7 Instant uninstall required. This isn't compatible with 1.7. March 26, 2013
Does not work for 1.7 CE I tried installing it but it does not work at all for 1.7 CE. Instant uninstall required March 21, 2013
I have 1.6.2 and it works fine but breaks my catalog price rules in the product view. When the product is added to the cart its right but the special price listed is the regular price. Any way to fix this? January 3, 2013
Working charm. nice extension. December 13, 2012
It's working on Magento CE ! I've downloaded from: http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Yoast_MetaRobots Really great extension! October 24, 2012
I believe you can set the robots tag from your local.xml file like the following. Say for the contacts page just do lt;contacts_index_indexgt; lt;reference name="head"gt; lt;action method="setRobots"gt;lt;valuegt;NOINDEX,FOLLOWlt;/valuegt;lt;/actiongt; lt;/referencegt; lt;/contacts_index_indexgt; Just do that for each page you want to set the robots tag for. No need to mess with an extension then. September 24, 2012
Installed this extension on a production CE environment. Unfortunately it crashed our website! De-installed immediately and all back to normal. This is a real shame as had it worked it would have been very useful. September 20, 2012
