4SEO version 1.7.0


We're pleased to announce the release of 4SEO version 1.7.0. This is a feature and maintenance release with multiple improvements and fixes!

Here are the highlights:

  • Added configuration to exclude images from sitemap by domain name
  • Added structured data caching when Joomla own caching is enabled, else structured data may not be generated
  • Some faulty extensions can cause 4SEO error page to display as raw HTML code instead of a normal page. Added an attempt at a workaround
  • K2 uses 0000-00-00 00:00:00 for null data, can cause invalid structured data when an item has not been modified
  • Added sanity test for dates used in lastmod sitemap field
  • Removed unneeded Db query to read configuration sections that have not been configured yet
  • Moved sharing image selector at the top of page edit window, validator at the bottom
  • Enabled back pinging Bing with sitemaps, with an updated ping URL after they silently removed the previous one
  • Styled scrollbars for chromium-based browsers
  • Now auto-detecting Article structured data Headline field for non-Joomla content
  • Added clean-up of wrongly stored WAF rules that may have been added to the rules table incorrectly by early beta versions
  • Compatibility issue with YooTheme template on Joomla 4 can cause PHP warnings to be displayed
  • Place the rule after... field offers only up to 10 rules instead of the full list when modifying any sort of rule
  • Option to disable built-in structured data rules does not disable regular Joomla article ones
  • Protocol-relative images URLs on other domains are not properly made absolute when included in the sitemap

Please see this page for a full changelog. This release is immediately available both from the download area and using the one-click Joomla! updater of your web site.
