The Schema update – SEOPress 4.7 update release

SEOPress 4.7 is now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

🎉 New – How-to schema

It’s now possible to add a manual “How-to” schema to your post using our Structured data types metabox when you edit a post, page or post type.

Useful for every “How-to” article to get more visibility in search engine results. We encourage you to download our free ebook to learn more about schemas.

🎉 New – Automatic schemas improvements

We have added a new condition to automatic schemas: Post ID is equal / is not equal to “your post ID”.

Requesting by several users, you can now filter the list of available dynamic variables using these 3 new hooks:

  • seopress_schemas_mapping_select
  • seopress_schemas_dyn_variables
  • seopress_schemas_dyn_variables_replace
seopress custom variables automatic schemas
Add custom dynamic variables to automatic schemas list

Filtering automatic schemas is now super easy with our brand new hooks returning an array:

The previous filters will continue to work as expected but we encourage everyone to use them now.

🎉 New – Schema properties

New properties have been added to both automatic and manual schema to follow the evolution of structured data types:

  • Speakable property for Article schema
  • ReviewBody property for Review schema
  • Menu and acceptsReservations properties for Local Business schema
  • Video property for Recipe schema
  • Author property (custom) for Article schema
  • Start Date Timezone, Organizer Name and Organizer URL properties to Event schema
