Finally; I brought the premium Schema Plugin out to the door.
Schema plugin is the most advanced plugin I’ve ever developed for WordPress CMS.
I believe it’s the most advanced schema.org plugin of all time since it’s packed with great features.
The Story of Schema Premium
Since the success of the free version of Schema that was released at wordpress.org plugin directory, the plugin reached 70,000+ active installs.
I’ve been maintaining and supporting the free plugin for more than 5 years now. I’ve also been active in responding to support threads at wp.org where the plugin is hosted.
In that journey; users kept asking me to add support for new schema.org types rather than Article and BlogPosting, but this isn’t something that I would add to the free version, it isn’t acceptable because it changes goals and objectives of the plugin.
Many of those users asked me to develop a premium version of the plugin because they want to pay for it.
I realized the need for a better schema.org tool, something that can work for professionals. Those, who knows what they are doing and want to have control of every piece of content.
So, I came up with Schema Premium.
It took about 14 months of hard work to get the plugin ready for release.
How I built the Schema Premium plugin
In short, I’ve used past 7 years of experience in developing SEO plugins, and some great tools to create a fully extensible schema.org framework plugin, which allow me to build on top of it amazing things.
ACF is Beautiful!
I needed to find a solution for creating post meta needed in the plugin to deal with post meta across the plugin pages, and on custom post types.
I found that Advanced Custom Fields plugin (ACF) will do the job perfectly.
Schema Premium relies on ACF Pro for registering all post meta fields. This is done based on complicated set of choices made by the user.
The good news is; we can include ACF Pro in our plugin.
So, Schema Premium has the power of ACF Pro as part of its core, which makes using it an interesting and smooth experience.
