Clean your source code for search engines and new meta tags – SEOPress 3.7.6 and 3.7.7 release

SEOPress 3.7.6 and 3.7.7 are now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

🎉 New – improve your source code for Google Bot

If your theme uses the “hentry” class in your source code, Google detects it as a structured data (schema) which is wrong. You now have the option to delete this class (it is also unused in CSS in almost all themes) from SEO > Advanced > Advanced tab.

Two new options to clean the comments area (SEO > Advanced > Advanced tab):

  • remove author website in comments to avoid creating useless links to your homepage when the post author answers comments
  • remove website field in comments to avoid SPAM

🎉 New – Open Graph meta tags: article:tag and article:section

On singular post, we now automatically add article:tag and article:section. These Open Graph meta tags improve social sharing on Facebook and other social networks using OG tags.

🎉 Other news

WordPress 4.7 is now the minimum version required by SEOPress to work properly. Please upgrade!

We have added a new dynamic variable, %%page%%, to display pagination in archive pages with the context (eg: page 1 of 10).

We also add the SiteNavigationElement schema. Go to SEO > PRO > Structured data types to activate it.

Compatibility with Toolset, Admin Columns PRO and Oxygen Builder plugins has been improved.

And so much more! Take a look at the changelog below to see all the changes.

Thank you all for your contribution. If you want to submit your feedback, contact us!
