Custom capabilities, compatibility improvements, manual schema refactoring and more – SEOPress 4.6 update release

SEOPress 4.6 is now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

🎉 New – Custom capabilities

From SEO, Advanced, Security, you can now allow or disallow specific user roles to each SEO pages. For example, a contributor can be authorized to edit global SEO titles and metas.

SEOPress uses also three custom post types:

  • Schemas
  • Redirections
  • Broken links

We recommend using User Role Editor (free plugin) to assign our post types capabilities to your user roles easily.

If you update manually the plugins, make sure to deactivate and reactivate them once. You will not loose any settings or SEO metadata.

🎉 New – Dynamic variables for authors

We have added several new dynamic variables related to authors. You can use them for singular posts / pages / post types or author archives. Here is the list:

  • %%author_first_name%% => author first name
  • %%author_last_name%% => author last name
  • %%author_website%% => author website
  • %%author_nickname%% => author nickname
  • %%_ucf_your_user_meta%% => specific user meta, replace “your_user_meta” by your own

🎉 Compatibilities improvements for Bricks, Themify, Oxygen, Elementor and ACF

Our content analysis is now fully compatible with Themify and Bricks page builder.

We have added support for Elementor dark mode.

Custom fields built with ACF are now automatically added to our content analysis. 🎉

We also improved compatibility with Oxygen in specific cases.

🎉 Complete refactoring of manual schemas

The whole system for generating manual schemas has been refactored. This will allow us to quickly add new properties and schemas according to the evolutions of schema.org and Google. If you are currently using our hooks to filter manual schemas, they are now deprecated in favor of those:

  • seopress_pro_get_json_data_author
