๐ŸŽ‰ New โ€“ Optimized sharing for LinkedIn

Since several months, if the Oembed feature is enabled on your WordPress site (On by default), LinkedIn will stop using the Open Graph metadata for the benefit of the oembed JSON feed.

SEOPress is now adding your custom Open Graph title and Open Graph Image to this feed to have the same sharing experience between all social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest…

๐ŸŽ‰ New โ€“ Disable automatic schemas per post

It’s now possible to further refine the display conditions of your automatic schemas.

From the Structured data types metabox, under the Automatic tab, you can deactivate all automatic schemas for the current post, or deactivate a specific one.

No need to use a hook anymore to exclude a specific page, post or single post type.
