Extend Yoast Schema with a New Type

Yoast 11 introduced schema data added by default. If your site already has schema added through your theme then this may break. At the time of writing, the documentation only shows how to extend an existing type (Person), not add a new one. So here I am going to show how to add event data by adding a new piece to the tree.

Remove Yoast HTML Comments in Version 11.0

If you were previously stripping Yoast HTML comments on your website then there is a good chance that updating to v11.0 will show the new schema data at the top of your website.

The problem is that a widely used snippet for stripping out the comments searched for the string ‘yoast’ and then removed the surrounding comment tags. The new schema data added in V11.0 uses the word ‘yoast’ as a class on the script tag, so the script tags get stripped and the schema data shows at the top of the website.

unset( $this->_scripts[ JURI::root( true ) . '/media/jui/js/bootstrap.min.js' ] );

For whatever reason, this doesn’t work anymore with Joomla 3.9.

Block WordPress Image Uploads by Filename Match

Are you continually telling people to optimise their image filenames before uploading them to a website?

Do staff members keep assuring you that they will optimise their filenames in the future whilst having no intention of doing so?

Have they said “I’ll go back and do it later” rather than taking 2 seconds to do the job properly in the first place?

Then it’s time to start blocking their uploads so you don’t have to check up on them like a child 🙂 Continue reading “Block WordPress Image Uploads by Filename Match” ››

Securing ISPConfig Admin Panel the Easy Way

The latest ISPConfig hosting panel includes support for Let’s Encrypt free SSL certificates. This makes it easy to secure all domains added to the panel, but it doesn’t have an option to generate a cert for the actual control panel login.

Rather than manually installing and configuring a new cert through the command line, there is an easier option. Continue reading “Securing ISPConfig Admin Panel the Easy Way” ››
