Classic SEO RC1 released

Classic SEO Release Candidate 1

Classic SEO is the first SEO plugin built specifically to work with ClassicPress.


No new features in RC1 as you might expect. There are some very minor tweaks and improvements but it is mostly a bug fix release.

Unless any serious defects are discovered in RC1, the next release is very likely to be 1.0.0, the first official release.

What’s changed in RC1

Important note

As reported by @Simone, I had neglected to update the link in Update Manager and as a result, it was still pointing to the beta 4 version. The update via the plugin page in admin would have failed. I have now corrected this.

Sorry for any problems caused.

Thanks Simone :slight_smile:


Say 62. I am in the process of installing to two sites this week… You know, I have the early adopter bug…
