Always making sure your original full-size images are large enough (not to mention older images in your library that pre-date WPSSO) can be a bit of a challenge. :) Sometimes, you'd just like to upscale / enlarge the images you have — not too much, but just a bit. If you've felt that need, then you'll really like WPSSO v3.21.0 — it offers a new image upscaling module, including a maximum percentage limit to make sure your upscaled images don't look too bad. If upscaling sounds right for you, check the updated Setup Guide for additional information on this feature.
Fixed a call to wp_encode_emoji() which did not exist before WP v4.2. Added new "Allow Upscaling of Small WP Images" and "Maximum Image Upscale Percentage" options (Pro version). #images #update #upscale #wpsso

WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.19.0 has been released. After the Schema meta tag improvements of the last two versions, I also decided to review the JSON related code and see if I can't improve / extend it's functionality and flexibility. I've added several new JSON filter hooks to help you modify existing JSON (for the default website, person, and organization JSON scripts), but also contribute JSON scripts for other Schema types as well.
Added a new Google / Schema "Author Name Format" option. Additional schema and JSON improvements, including new JSON filter hooks. #json #update #wpsso

This latest version provides an easy way to connect WPSSO to Custom Post Types (CPTs). If your theme (or another plugin) uses the following CPTs, WPSSO will pre-populate its Open Graph meta tags array with standard meta tags for that type.
Added pre-defined Open Graph meta tags for custom post types (article, book, music.album, product, etc.). The pre-defined meta tags allow developers to easily hook single meta tag names to modify their values. #ngfb #translate #update #wpsso

NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.11.0 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.11.0 have been released.

WordPress recently announced an initiative to import all plugins into their translation system, which means that most plugin and theme authors will have to modify their code to make it compliant, if they haven't done so already (removing variables from the translation functions, for example).

The translation of NGFB and WPSSO has been on my To-Do list for a while now, so after being notified by the WordPress team that NGFB and WPSSO would be imported into the translation system, I decided to update all the code to make it translation ready. Little did I know it would take more than a week of serious coding -- while at the same time testing the new code by translating the plugins into French myself. There were almost 500 text strings to translate (from a few words to several sentences) -- and that's without counting all the help popup text (which will be completed in a later version). Hopefully the new French (fr_FR) translations of NGFB and WPSSO will be useful to some. :-)

#ngfb #wpsso #update #french   #translation  
2015/10/09 Added a French language (fr_FR) translation. Added a check to detect image IDs within class names. Small fixes and a slight performance improvement. #french #ngfb #translate #update #wpsso

WPSSO Social Sharing Buttons (WPSSO SSB) version 2.0.0 has been released. This latest version includes a new E-Mail sharing button, which has been requested a few times in the past. :) All CSS class names have been updated — WPSSO SSB version 2.0.0 will load a new set of default CSS styles. If you’ve customized the default styles in an older version, you will have to apply those changes to these new defaults as well (taking into consideration the new class names). The CSS editing features on the Sharing Styles page has been included in the Free version as well. ;-)
Added a new "E-Mail" sharing button. Added 'ssb' prefix to all CSS class and ID names. Enabled CSS editing features for the Free version. #emailbutton #update #wpssossb

WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.18.0 and 3.18.1 have been released. The latest versions include a new “Schema Item Type by Post Type” option to select the Schema item type for each post type (and custom post types). Since version 3.16.0 WPSSO has offered an automated process to check and modify templates to add schema attributes for <head> elements — version 3.18.0 takes this a step further by checking and modifying all / any header template files (header.php, header-home.php, etc.). Some WPSSO class methods have been renamed, so make sure you update any WPSSO extension you may be using as well. ;-)
Added a new "Schema Item Type by Post Type" option, improved head HTML element checks in theme templates, refactored the post, user, and taxonomy meta code. #schema #update #wpsso

I've started work on a new auto-posting extension for WPSSO, which has led to a few improvements in NGFB and WPSSO. A new "Show Tabs in Social Settings Metabox" option allows you to remove the Social Preview, Head Tags, and Validate tabs from the Social Settings metabox. The meta tag listing under the Head Tags tab has also been improved to include additional schema and JSON-LD code blocks. A new "Force Autoplay when Possible" option has been added to force video autoplay when possible -- the Vimeo and Wistia integration modules have been updated to use this option. The All In One SEO Pack and all video integration modules have also been refactored to standardize their code.
Added new options to manage video autoplay, and include/exclude tabs in the Social Settings metabox. Refactored video integration modules and improved the Head Tags listing in the Social Settings metabox. #autoplay #ngfb #update #wpsso

With a nice little mention about WPSSO in the Social Optimization section. ;-)

"This plugin gives users complete control over the information provided to social networking crawlers, including Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and others. In addition to basic meta tag support for Open Graph, Rich Pins, and Twitter Cards, this plugin will blow you away in terms of all the configurable and customizable options it provides. It should also play nicely when used in conjunction with Yoast SEO."
WordPress is famous for being well designed for SEO right out of the box. All of its features and functions have been built to guide search engines through every post, page and category of your site, so it’s not absolutely essential to install third-party SEO plugins for your sites to rank well. Though...

These new versions add a Show Social Columns option on the Advanced settings page to enable / disable the the "Social Img" and "Social Desc" columns for Posts, Pages, Taxonomy, and Users list pages. NextGEN Gallery's (NGG) image object format has changed in recent versions, breaking some filters that NGFB and WPSSO required to correctly detect NGG image IDs. The detection of NGG images in the content text has been improved in these versions by adding support for NGG's "data-image-id" attribute. A possible undefined index error for Media Library images has also been fixed by adding a check for the full width and height attributes (which may be missing).
2015/10/22 Added a new Show Social Columns option to manage displayed columns (Pro version). Fixed NextGEN Gallery image ID detection (Pro version). #ngfb #translate #update #wpsso

NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.10 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.10 have been released. The Photo Card, Gallery Card, and Product Card were deprecated by Twitter on July 3rd, 2015. NGFB and WPSSO continue to support all current Twitter Card formats, including the Summary Card, Summary Card with Large Image, App Card (exclusive to WPSSO), and Player Card -- in both the Free (New) and Pro versions.
Added Twitter Card features in the Free version. Removed the deprecated Photo, Gallery, and Product Twitter Cards. #ngfb #schema #update #wpsso
