Common Problems

Please confirm that the module is published and assigned to the appropriate menu items or pages within your Joomla backend. You may also check if your custom meta elements already exist in the page you are trying to edit.

Conflicts with other Joomla extensions can sometimes occur if other extensions add the same meta elements in your page. Try disabling the other extensions or making sure that Simple Meta is included in the page last, by setting it to a module position near the bottom of your template.
