- 2020-07-07 – Fixed a bug in rendering of static Front page Platinum SEO settings (i.e. meta description and canonical tags) when multiple Static pages are used as front page by multilingual plugins like Polylang. This bug had an impact only on users of multilingual plugins.
- 2020-07-06 – A change has been made whereby the user is given an option to choose to display either the Home Page Settings(default) or the platinum SEO settings for the Static Page chosen as the Home Page (Front Page). This option isn’t necessary for everyone, unless you are using, say, multilingual plugins like Polylang where multiple pages can be chosen as the Front Page i.e. one for each language. This need not be enabled by others.
Deprecated noodp, noydir robots meta tags.
- 2020-06-23 – You can now set a preferred Term for every POST. This can be set for the chosen Preferred Taxonomy.
Fixed a bug in sitemap date display.
