NGFB, WPSSO / SSB Updates – New Social Preview

wpsso-ngfb-icon-round-2048x2048

The NGFB and WPSSO plugins have been updated with a new “Social Preview” tab in the Social Settings metabox (found on Post / Page admin editing pages). The preview includes the first image from the Open Graph social meta tags, along with a title and descriptive text. The Social Preview is not meant to be an accurate representation of an actual share, since the image size and layout depends on several factors (the social site itself, the resolution and platform of the user, for example), but it should give you a general idea of what a share of that URL might look like. The image dimensions used are those recommended by Facebook as a minimum (600 x 315px). Images smaller than this will include a warning overlay to remind you that using a larger image is suggested.

How Fast is the WPSSO Social Sharing Buttons Plugin?

wpsso-icon-round-2048x2048

Plugins that add social sharing buttons should be fairly light and fast — they generally don’t need to fetch much information about a page, like an SEO or SMO / SSO plugin does. Here are some example “execution time” metrics from the P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) plugin, using WP Test Data, and several popular social sharing plugins (along with the WordPress Core and Twenty Fourteen theme for reference). The plugins were configured to include the Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest sharing buttons at the bottom of single posts and pages.

Developer Special – Buy one, Get one Free

wordpress-logo-blue

The WPSSO and NGFB plugins for WordPress are licensed based on the WordPress Site Address. Typically, a Development, Staging, and Production website – for example – would require 3 licenses. In the spirit of helping our fellow developers, we are offering a free license for every license purchased – on all past and future purchases. So, for example, if you purchased a license for example.com (or www.example.com), you can also register dev.example.com using the same Authentication ID. This allows developers to purchase a license, develop a customer’s website, and then change the Site Address upon delivery, without having to purchase an additional license for the production website.
