4SEO version 4.5.1


We're pleased to announce the release of 4SEO version 4.5.1. This is a maintenance release with multiple small improvements and bug fixes:

Here are the highlights:

  • Hikashop: do not default to using the website publisher if a brand is not specified for a product
  • More thorough clean-up of Hikashop own generated microdata on product pages
  • Automatic redirect from mixed-case URLs to lower case URLs is now disabled by default.
  • Removed sitemap partial file reading progress
  • Now forcing application/json content type on all POST/PUT/PATCH/DELETE fetch requests, should reduce mod_security incorrectly blocking requests
  • Do not try to log execution of built-in rules (firewall or others), this fills up the log files with useless error data
  • Hikashop structured data records always use default currency instead of actual
  • Automatic redirect to lowercased URLs does not work on multilingual sites if it is only the language code that has the wrong case
  • Automatic redirect to lowercased URLs only works in J4 is a 4SEO custom error page is enabled
  • Search Console integration Connect button is disabled and error message displayed if access key has dashes (-) in it
  • On multilingual sites, OpenGraph OG:locale value is incorrect, uses default language

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.

Best regards
