4SEO version 1.5.0


We're pleased to announce the release of 4SEO version 1.5.0. This is a feature release with multiple additions, changes and bug fixes.

Here are the highlights:

  • Added support for Virtuemart canonicalization, sitemap inclusion and image detection
  • Added support for J2Store canonicalization, sitemap inclusion and image detection
  • Added error pages management: handle different kinds of errors with rules, display custom content within your regular template and suggest similar pages in case of 404
  • All rules (structured data, redirects, replacer, SEO, analytics,...) can now also be based on content language
  • 4SEO can now automatically redirect sh404SEF URLs to their Joomla SEF equivalent, when disabling or removing sh404SEF
  • Added configuration section for extensions
  • Added Italian translation by Guido Tedaldi
  • Added Polish translation by Marcin R√≥wnicki
  • Added priority analysis: links with some assets-like extensions (.pdf, .txt, .png, .jpg, ...) will be crawled and analyzed after regular pages. Helps on some site with large numbers of linked images to prioritize actual content and speed up discovery
  • Hikashop structured data now includes textual reviews present on the page if they have an author and a rating
  • Now showing manual site analysis progress in the browser tab title, to easily view progress when one navigates away during analysis
  • Added stylesheet to sitemaps files for easier viewing and navigation in a browser
  • Optimize rebuilding of sitemaps: less frequent but still catch all changes
  • When checking links to external sites, pages with invalid TLS certificates do not stop a manual crawl anymore. They are now reported as Broken links, with a status code of 421
  • Cannot enter a domain with a dash (-) when listing domains excluded from analysis
  • XML sitemap may have invalid characters in them, preventing parsing by browser
  • Hikashop built-in structured data are not output on Joomla 4
  • Existing structured data in content are cleaned up even if structured data cleanup is disbled
