After a time of scripting SeoPress we decided to rework the project. The whole user interface, the usability, the special tag engine, everything has been reworked. We are not ready yet, but we have thought that we want to present you the reworked user interface and give you the opportunity to discuss the changes we’ve made.
SeoPress start page
As you can see, the whole structure have been changed. All SEO settings can be made at one page. The Tabs are shown automatically, depending on your wordpress installation. Also the meta boxes are now ordered in an accordion. Anything is much more clear now.
In the old version of SeoPress, it took much efforts to get the special tags you needed. With the new special tag engine it’s much more easy to get the right one. The autocomplete function will show you a set of special tags you can use in the field. Also there is now a config file where new special tags can be added very easy (for programmers ;) ). You only have to write a function to get a value and add it to the config array.
The components of Buddypress are a bit more complex, but we tried to make it a bit more understandable. Now you can config the components and the fields which have to be shown at one tab. At this time it is nessesary to setup the fields of the buddypress components you have installed, by clicking which components are creating pages in other components. In some of the coming versions of SeoPress there will be setup presets for the components, stored in a config array.
At the global options page you can setup some SEO configuration you use at the whole plugin.
We decided to add action hooks for the plugin. So everybody can create additional plugins for SeoPress.
So be on edge whats happening the next weeks. We planned to give you a beta in the next two weeks. If you have ideas, let us know!
