NGFB version 7.7.0.2 and WPSSO version 2.7.0.2 have been released — The description for BuddyPress members / activity / groups index pages has been improved by using a more generic text for the meta tags, instead of using the latest activity text (Pro version). The ‘Use Filtered (SEO) Titles’, ‘Apply Excerpt Filters’, and ‘Apply Content Filters’ Advanced options have also been added to the Free version (previously only available in the Pro version).

WPSSO v2.7.0.2 also includes a small fix for WooCommerce — The WpssoMedia::get_meta_image() method has been replaced by WpssoProUtilPostmeta::get_og_image(), and the WooCommerce addon still contained a call to the old method (Pro version).

Some adjustments were also made for BuddyPress to better detect activity loops (for sharing URLs and activity descriptions).

A possible “infinite loop” condition was also fixed for WPSSO SSB, which affected the Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter buttons.
