WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.33.1-1 has been released, along with updates for the WPSSO JSON, WPSSO ORG, and WPSSO PLM extensions. One of the big features for this new release is the added support for the Schema http://schema.org/Event type and its sub-types (DanceEvent, MusicEvent, etc.), along with integration of The Events Calendar plugin. The Events Calendar plugin already includes basic JSON-LD support, but the WPSSO Organization Markup (WPSSO ORG) and WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta (WPSSO PLM) extensions allow you to include much more detail about the organizer (as an actual Organization instead of a Person), the event location, and select a performer for the event. The combination of WPSSO and all three extensions can provide extensive Schema markup about your event (see the following example).

WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.31.0-1 has been released, and includes several interesting changes, including support of post / page co-authors and guest authors using the Co-Authors Plus plugin. WPSSO Pro will extend the list of Contact Info under the Guest Author profile page, and include co-authors and guest authors (name, description / bio, image, and all contact URLs) in post / page meta tags. The WPSSO Schema JSON-LD extension has also been updated to add co-authors and guest authors to all Schema types that include author information (Article, NewsArticle, TechArticle, BlogPosting, WebPage, etc.).
Categorized the display of Free / Pro features in the sidebar metabox. Added support for the Co-Authors Plus plugin (including Guest Authors). #coauthors #update #wpsso

I often want to output an array for debugging purposes, but using var_dump() or print_r() on an array that includes true / false values and class objects can be problematic -- false values appear empty, and class objects can include too much information. I wrote the following recursive static method (presented here as a function) to pre-filter an array for readability when using print_r() or var_dump().

WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.25.3 was released this morning. I don't usually write an official announcement for minor releases, but version 3.25.3 includes a small change (the only change, really) that developers have been asking about for several months now -- the ability to automatically hide all warning notices. ;-)
Added a new NGFB_HIDE_ALL_WARNINGS constant - see the NGFB Setup Guide for details. #hide #notices #update #wpsso

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

The more dynamic a site is the harder it is to see errors. Learn how to use debug logging in WordPress to record and detect hidden errors.

If you need to create an array of store hours (for example), the following function can generate an associative array of values quickly, with the hours formatted and stepped (every hour, 30 mins, etc.) as you wish.

The last three versions of WPSSO — including this one — contain significant changes to the JSON-LD code. All non-social related JSON-LD markup — like schema.org/Article markup for example — is provided by a new WPSSO Schema JSON-LD (WPSSO JSON) Pro extension. You can select the Schema type for each WordPress Post Type on the SSO General settings page. The new WPSSO JSON extension creates appropriate JSON-LD markup for all supported Schema types. WPSSO JSON also comes with an additional Schema Type option for the Social Settings metabox, allowing you to customize the Schema type for each Post / Page.
New WPSSO Schema JSON-LD extension announced. New "Google / Schema Image Dimensions" and "Business Banner (600x60) Image URL" options, along with other Schema related improvements. #json #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
