🎉 New – Massive performance improvement

We have reviewed the way we generate all the metadata for each content on your site.

Result: a drastic performance improvement of up to 2000% improvement for the frontend. However, in absolute terms, this will be difficult to notice, but on sites with high traffic or with few server resources, this should have a significant impact.

  • the compatibility of our breadcrumbs with the WP Job Manager plugin
  • a new option in the Redirections settings to prevent WordPress from automatically guessing and redirecting a mistyped URL
