What's New?


June 18, 2024

🚀 Features

  • New license management that allows activating licenses directly in the Panel.
  • Deprecated the private Composer repository in favor of Packagist.
Prior to v1.7, the plugin was published on a private Composer repository. It is now available on Packagist and can be installed without authentication. Your license key remains the same and is still required in production environments. To migrate your license key to the new location, follow these steps:
  • Open a Panel page that contains the SEO Audit section.
  • Your license key is automatically migrated from the auth.json file in your root directory to the new location in the /site/config/.kirby-tools-licenses file.
  • Update your .gitignore file to exclude the new license file.
You can remove the repository configuration from your composer.json file.

🚀 Features

  • As an alternative to both the keyphraseField and synonymsField properties (which are separate fields that an editor has to fill in) you can define keywords/keyphrases and synonyms directly in the blueprint:

Both of these new properties support Kirby queries. For example, you can use the page title as a keyword next to a list of synonyms:

type: seo-audit
keyphrase: "{{ page.title.value }}"
  - Kirby
  - SEO
  - Audit
