Creates semantic sitemaps using meta keywords or tags!

Plugin: EKS - Easy Keyword Sitemap
Function: With this plugin you may create semantic sitemaps in which articles are grouped by their keywords or tags.
Languages: English and German

This plugin creates a keyword sitemap controlled by the meta keywords or tags. The articles are categorized and grouped based on matching keywords or tags. The plugin can be limited to specific categories. Each article may show a teaser-text which is composed using the existing meta description. The plugin complies with the actual article restrictions, like access level, state or language settings. You may create various lists. For each sitemap you may display an alpha index for quick navigation. EKS displays only items with at least one existing keyword. Articles using multiple keywords, separated by comma, are as well listed several times at the matching keywords.


  • Creates semantic sitemaps of all articles
  • Articles are grouped by the meta keywords or tags and displayed in a list
  • Plugin is triggered by a simple syntax (see tab "Installation")
  • Plugin is completely controlled by the syntax
  • The sitemap can be restricted to any category
  • A teaser text can be displayed for each entry. The text is generated from the meta description
  • It is possible to display an alphabet bar (Alpha Index). The Alpha Index allows a quick selection of the desired articles.
  • It is possible to create as many sitemaps as you need, also in one single article.
  • Include or exclude keywords / tags
  • Languages: English and German


Install the plugin in the backend and activate it in "Extensions" - "Plugins" - "Content - Easy Keyword Sitemap"

The plugin is activated and controlled by a special syntax. The plugin itself doesn't need any settings as it is fully controlled through an easy syntax.

Activation without parameters {eks}{/eks}

This is the standard syntax where it does load all categories without displaying alpha index nor teaser text.

Possible parameters:

alpha - Activate alpha index for easy navigation.
alpha=cyrillic - Activate alpha index in Cyrillic for easy navigation.
cache - Caches the output and loads it from static files in further requests (stored in cache/eks).
catid - Catetory IDs to include.
direction=x - Determines the sort direction, default is ascending (ASC). Possible values for x: 'ASC' & 'DESC'.
keyword - Only these keywords are included in the sitemap.
nokeyword - These keywords are excluded from the sitemap.
ordering=x - Determines the ordering, default is by title. Possible values for x: 'id', 'title', 'catid', 'created', 'created_by', 'modified', 'ordering', 'hits' & 'featured'.
tags - Tags are used instead of meta keywords for the categorization of articles.
tag - Only these tags are included in the sitemap.
notag - These tags are excluded from the sitemap.
teaser - Activate the teaser text which will be extracted from the meta description.
titleLink - The first letter of the loaded articles is used for the sitemap. This option loads all articles regardless of the keywords and tag parameters!

Use the parameters separated by a pipe-symbol '|'.

Example for a sitemap using teaser text, alpha index, tags, including the categories 1, 2 & 5, limited on 2 tags, ordered by hits and cached ouptut:


Tip: Place the EKS syntax in an empty article, name the article "Sitemap" and publish it in your menu.

Note: Articles with no or too many keywords / tags will not generate an optimal sitemap. Articles should be categorized with 1 to max. 3 matching keywords in order to obtain an optimal sitemap!

Latest release

Version - 2024-05-28

  • + Subscriber Interface: The plugin has been rewritten to utilise the subscriber interface, enhancing its integration and performance capabilities.
  • + Improved Pro Security Token validation check. The Pro package contains a token file with an individual security token linked to the user account that is checked against the validation server for authenticity. If the file is missing or the token is invalid, you cannot edit the settings and use the extension. The Pro Security Token field has been extended to handle incorrect tokens and blocked accounts. If you encounter an error message related to the token, download the Pro version with your Pro subscription from the linked download page and install it again!
  • Attention: The Pro extension will not work correctly if the token file or custom field is missing or modified. Never edit or remove the files to ensure correct functionality.
