SEOPress just rolled out version 5.3 of their WordPress SEO plugin, introducing Regex and conditions in redirects, a Page Speed and Core Web Vitals redesign, an accordion for the FAQ block, and more.
Regex & Conditions In Redirects
You can now use regular expressions to create complex redirections, e.g. ^/product will redirect every URL starting with “product”. In addition, you can run redirects for all users, only logged in users or not logged in users. In version 5.5, SEOPress improved the regular expressions in redirections. If you have multiple groups in your regular expression, you can now use the matches in the destination URL.
Redirects With Better UI/UX
The redirect URL field now comes with an autocompletion feature that suggests matching URLs based on post titles and/or slugs.
PageSpeed Insights With Core Web Vitals
From the PageSpeed tab on the SEOPress dashboard, you will see both your Desktop and Mobile scores along with the Core Web Vitals Assessment (passed or failed). You can also download the full report as a PDF at SEO > Pro > PageSpeed.
New FAQ Block Accordion
When you edit an existing FAQ block or add a new one, you can now enable an accordion which automatically matches the look and feel of your theme.
Finally, they improved the SEOPress dashboard allowing you to drag & drop the following SEO cards: SEO management, Latest News from SEOPress Blog and Site Overview. Two new notifications have also been added to inform you of an existing physical robots.txt file and a Disallow: / for all user agents in robots.txt.
