Schema Premium 1.2.6 Update: TouristDestination and TouristAttraction

Schema Premium Licenses

We are excited to announce the release of Schema Plugin version 1.2.6, which includes support for TouristDestination and TouristAttraction structured data.

Also, we’ve extended the ImageObject structured data, and fixed a couple of bugs.

Remember!

After updating the plugin, check plugin settings, flush cache, then test schema.org markup to make sure things looks right.

Key Enhancements!

In addition to support TouristDestination and TouristAttraction structured data types, and extending the ImageObject markup, we have some exiting features in this release.

Schema Properties to show in REST API

In the last 1.2.5 update, we’ve updated ACF PRO to the latest version so we can bring the possibility of introducing property fields to the WordPress REST API.

Now, you can enable all structured data properties saved in post meta to show in REST API within the plugin settings, under the Advanced tab.

Use Existing Structured Data

Now, you can use the structured data generated on any page as a static source of structured data for any property of your liking.

In the Schema > Types > Your Type configuration page, and for any property you can select:

  • Use Existing Structured Data

Then select the page or post you would like to be the source of this structured data.

Properties source of data based on existing structured data

New Custom Structured Data

This is a pretty useful feature and comes handy if you ever tried to override a property value with some more detailed structured data.

In the Schema > Types > Your Type configuration page, and for any property you can select:

  • New Custom Structured Data Field
  • Schema Property Custom Structured Data Field
    Setting property value source to a custom field.

    Then, when you edit your page, you will see an input field to insert your custom structured data.

    Note: Make sure you always insert a valid JSON-LD structured data in this field to avoid errors.

    WordPress Audio Block Structured Data

    In this release 1.2.6, we introduced support for the WordPress Audio Block.

    You can enable this setting from Schema > Settings > Schemas > Embeds settings.

    So, if this feature is enabled; whenever you insert an Audio Block, the plugin will automatically generate structured data from the audio file and include it in the final structured data output.

    Extended ImageObject Structured Data

    We’ve also extended the ImageObject structured data with these properties:

    • headline
    • alternativeHeadline
    • uploadDate
    • dateModified
    • encodingFormat
    • contentUrl

    So, now… your images will have more detailed structured data.
