WPSSO – Product Condition and WP / PHP Versions

WPSSO v3.40.3-1 plugin has been released (see the complete Changelog here) — this new version adds a custom “Product Condition” option in the Social Settings metabox, along with updating the minimum & recommended versions for WordPress and PHP.

The new “Product Condition” option will be visible only if the Open Graph og:type meta tag value is a “product” — which is the default value for all product pages from Easy Digital Downloads, MarketPress – WordPress eCommerce, WooCommerce, WP eCommerce, and most other e-commerce plugins (developers can also hook the ‘wpsso_og_type’ filter to change the default value – see the complete list of filters here).

NGFB / WPSSO – Product Rating Schema

NextGEN Facebook (NGFB) version 8.15.0 and WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) version 3.15.0 have been released.

A new “Use Meta Property Container(s)” option has been added to the Google / Schema settings tab to include additional schema properties in webpage headers (product ratings, for example). Support for WooCommerce and Yotpo Social Reviews for WooCommerce product ratings has also been added.

To take full advantage of this new Schema markup, make sure your “<head> Attributes Filter Hook” option under the Theme Integration tab is set correctly. If your theme does not offer a filter hook for the <head> element attributes, consider adding a call to the wpsso_schema_attributes() function in your theme’s header.php template instead (or ngfb_schema_attributes() if you use the NGFB plugin). Example:
