This minor update packs a major punch. TSF now supports headless mode, cementing itself as a turnkey solution. We defenestrated the pernicious object caching mechanism, and we updated some options’ defaults effective only on new sites. We improved performance iterably, fixed about 12 bugs, and enjoyed the weather. Lastly, we introduced a new API for user meta handling, among other things — developers that wrote software interfacing with TSF are employed well reading the detailed changelog.
The SEO Framework Changelog
We're continuously working on The SEO Framework plugin. This archive lists the latest changes by version.
Before heading into 2021, we wanted to set free four bugs.
Pro tip: If you can no longer switch TSF’s settings tabs, try hitting CMD ⌘+OPTION ⌥+R (Safari Mac), CMD ⌘+SHIFT ⇧+R (Chrome/Firefox Mac) or CTRL ^+SHIFT ⇧+R (Windows); these keyboard shortcuts will force-fetch the latest scripts from your server.
In this minor update, we ensured compatibility with PHP 8 and WP 5.6. TSF now also fully integrates with WordPress Core Sitemaps, which you can configure via the SEO settings. If you decide to keep using TSF’s optimized sitemap, you can now enjoy prerendering, DoS protection, and full Polylang integration. Lastly, you’ll find various accessibility improvements, and we fixed about a dozen bugs.
In this major-minor update, we improved browser performance by up to 99% (not a typo) by exchanging over 300 jQuery calls for vanilla JS ones. We also added two new options for oEmbed, freed a dozen bugs that got stuck in the UI and generators, and improved accessibility.
This update brings you up to 96% faster browser interaction, up to 30% faster browser rendering times, and up to 26% faster server response times.
You can now use quick-edit to adjust meta titles and descriptions of all your posts and terms.
New custom taxonomy settings are added, so you can quickly deindex custom taxonomies, or exclude SEO for them entirely.
Well-known page builders that aren’t built upon shortcodes, like Elementor, Beaver Builder, and Siteorigin’s, now support meta description generation.
The description generator is now far more intelligent–it can now recognize contractions, and other complex punctuations and marks (¡¿Que?! Y’all’dn’t’ve!? 「やった！」).
WordPress 5.5 support is now integrated deeply. To get there, we had to implement new query listeners, browser observers, and persistent notices.
