SEOPress 4.1 is now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.
🎉 New – FAQ schema for Elementor
Third iteration for Elementor page builder! This time, we have added the possibility to apply the FAQ schema in 1 click from Elementor’s Toggle and / or Accordion widgets. No more double entries!
🎉 New – An improved user interface for greater simplicity and productivity
Adding a dynamic variable in your meta title and description has never been easier thanks to our new variable selector located right next to the fields:
Same goes for target keywords: no more bothering to separate keywords with commas, just type in a keyword phrase and hit Enter. Double click on one of them to modify it. Or on the cross to remove it. Child’s play!
🎉 Other news – CSV import for terms, capabilities for redirects, improved design for user consent message
Our CSV metadata import tool, loved by our PRO users, can now import metadata for terms taxonomies. It is completely transparent and automatic. You don’t need to do anything specific in your file. SEOPress takes care of everything!
The “Video” and “Terms Taxonomies” XML sitemaps now support pagination. We took the opportunity to fix a bug for the XML sitemap of WooCommerce product attributes.
On the redirects side, a new button has appeared from the list of redirects: Delete all entries. Convenient to start from scratch after a CSV import that went wrong for example.
Administrators will be delighted to learn that new capabilities are emerging to more finely manage rights on redirects, namely:
A role management plugin like the excellent User Role Editor will allow you to manage all of this easily.
Regarding the user consent message, each color picker relating to a background now supports the notion of opacity (RGBA) for more possibilities. It is possible to add a backdrop to force people to accept or not your cookies or to define a width in pixels or percentage. Here is an example of a design obtained with the new options.
Finally, the acceptance cookie expiration period set by default at 30 days can be modified via a new field from SEO, Analytics, Cookie bar / GDPR.
Let’s not forget the developers who benefit from many new hooks to filter the settings of SEOPress according to their needs:
- seopress_adminbar_noindex to filter the noindex alert from WP admin bar
- seopress_cookies_expiration_days to filter the expiration date of the user consent cookie
- seopress_sitemaps_max_terms_per_sitemap to filter max terms per paginated sitemap
- seopress_sitemaps_max_videos_per_sitemap to filter max videos per paginated sitemap
- seopress_sitemaps_index_video_query to filter video index sitemap query
- seopress_sitemaps_index_post_types_query to filter post types query in XML sitemap
- seopress_metadata_query_terms_args to filter term query from export metadata tool
Many other improvements and fixes have been made to SEOPress in this version 4.1 (more details in the changelog below).
