Facebook Preview, Pixel counter for all languages and more! – SEOPress 3.7.8 update release

SEOPress 3.7.8 is now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

🎉 New – Facebook Preview / better content analysis

It’s finally here! The Facebook Preview is now available from the SEO metabox, Social tab. Like the Google Preview, all the information displayed comes directly from your source code.
This lets you know exactly what the Facebook bot will see.

We have also added additional checks to the content analysis to detect social tags duplicated by your theme or a plugin.

Hey, why isn’t Facebook taking my thumbnail?

Why is my title wrong?

Now you will know!

All the values of your different social meta will be listed.

🎉 New – Pixel counter for everyone!

We have completely revised our approach to calculating the pixel counter for the meta title and description.

It’s now compatible with any language or alphabet.

Faster, more reliable and universal!

🎉 Other news

wpForo plugin is now fully compatible with SEOPress!

We added two new dynamic variables:

  • %%currentmonth_short%% to display current month in 3 letters
  • %%post_thumbnail_url%% to display the post thumbnail URL (and a hook “seopress_titles_post_thumbnail_url” to filter its value)

We also fixed some issues with the og:image URL encoding, improve compatibility with Jetpack CDN and the check “Keywords in permalink” is not case sensitive anymore.

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!
