Update: Generate XML sitemaps in the new version of W7 SEO Uplifter (1.1.3)

Hello everyone! We hope you have enjoyed working with W7 SEO Uplifter so far, as much as we have. And today, we bring you a new update with bug fixes, improvements, and new features.

Performance feature improvement

Image optimization now supports Droppics and other galleries. All of the images can be converted to the WebP format in every image type (the thumbnail, large, full, etc.). Image quality and maximum size will be also set by the W7 SEO Uplifter settings.

Coming in this version: Sitemaps

A completely new feature in this version is the ability to create a sitemap for Google and other search engines.

At the moment, three types of content sources are available for the sitemap: menu items, Joomla articles, and Joomla categories. More sources (including e.g. DJ Classifieds ads pages, EasyBlog content, K2 content, etc.) will follow very soon. As well as sitemaps versioning.

The sitemap is generated by Google standard, so you can be sure that it’s working right.
