It has been a few months since we’ve released the WP Rich Snippets plugin, we’ve put a lot of effort to bring new features and modifications to the plugin to make it work for everyone. We’ve reached version 1.0.0b91, which still a beta.

Thanks to all our active members and their great feedback, we plan to bring out the final version after adding a few other new features and make sure the plugin is working great.

What’s new in version 1.0.0b91

The most noticeable modification in version 1.0.0b91 is the depreciation of tabs, so user reviews are no longer display in a tab, it will just show on page below content.

Also, the older versions of the plugin was saving user rating in comment meta with a specific meta key, we’ve changed the meta key to “rating”, this will allow us to integrate with other plugins like WooCommerce, we are working on the integration add-on to be released soon.
