according to the blog written Aug 24, it sounded like another version of wbAMP was going to come out in 2 weeks but the current community edition seems to be last updated Dec 2020? anyways, just wondering so we can try to figure out some AMP pages we been needing to do.
Sorry but wbAMP is not ready for J4. It's mostly done but needs some work to iron out a few bugs. The Community and Full versions are built on the same code so both will be released at the same time.
wbAMP has fallen behind because we concentrate on 4SEO and 4SEF, which have higher priority for us and most of our users.
would you say that 4seo could take over the google structure data plugin by tassos?
metadata information? open graph? sitemap? we currently use a plugin for each of those things.
It already does and has been for a while. And JSitemap Pro for sitemaps as well.JoomUnited just published a blog about how they replace JSitemap pro, Tassos GSD, a redirect plugin and another one just with 4SEO (and you get a replacement for RegularLabs ReReplace as well, together with a broken links detector which I'm not sure exists anywhere else).
In my mind, only an all-in-one SEO extension make sense because the same data has to be shared between various uses: sitemaps should only include canonical URLs, OpenGraph should be (mostly) the same as page title and description. Automatically discovering images in a page should be used for structured data and open graph. With 4EO, when a page is loaded, there's only one database read to get all the data for it.
And of course, being an SEO specialist for such a long time, all these features are not quickly put together, they are the result of a long experience. Lastly, 4SEO also implements a modern, single-page application interface (there's no page reload anywhere, you're just using an app) which I think all large extensions should be using these days.
along with sh404sef.. would 4sef take over sh404sef?
4SEF is (will be) sh404SEF with everything removed except SEF URLs creation and management. All the rest is done in 4SEO. Honestly, the main goal of 4SEO is to allow sites to keep their URLs when moving from J3 to J4 (it will run on both). It will still build the same menu-independant URLs, and allow customization.
In 4SEO, I use canonical tags instead of actually building unique SEF URLs per piece of content. That's less efficient but not touching Joomla routing/URLs is also less hassle when your site has 3rd-party extensions or is rather complex.
