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.
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.9 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.9 have been released. These latest versions include a new “Theme Integration” tab on the Advanced settings page to help provide better Schema markup support for Developers and/or power-users. By default, Schema itemprop / itemtype markup is added to the
<html> element in webpages, but a better location for this markup would be in the
<head> element. Unfortunately, WordPress does not have a standard filter for the
<head> element (like it does for the
<html> element attributes). If your theme provides a filter for the
<head> element attributes, and/or you feel confident enough to edit your theme’s header.php template, you will find the settings under the “Theme Integration” tab very useful.
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.8 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.8 have been released. The latest NGFB and WPSSO versions include new dismissible warnings for rejected images (too small and/or extreme aspect ratios) when using WordPress v4.2+. When previously dismissed warnings are found, an additional notice will be shown to allow these warnings to be displayed again temporarily.
NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.7 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.7 have been released. The latest NGFB and WPSSO versions include a new module for the WordPress REST API v2 plugin (Pro version).
WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons (WPSSO RRSSB) version 0.2 has just been released this morning.
This new extension plugin for WPSSO adds Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons to posts / pages, custom post types, bbPress, BuddyPress, WooCommerce product pages, and many more. The sharing buttons can be included in your content, excerpts, in a floating CSS sidebar, in a widget, from shortcodes, and on admin editing pages. The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) used by WPSSO RRSSB resize automatically to their container size, so they always look great from any device, including high resolution retina displays.
