Yoast SEO 20.0 Update Makes Huge Modifications

Posted by

Yoast released version 20.0 introduces significant modifications to the user interface that are meant to make it easier to enhance a WordPress site.

New Interface

The Yoast 20.0 user interface eliminates the old approach of making users click numerous tabs to access pages with numerous options.

The new variation of Yoast presents a card-style interface.

The card user interface doesn’t need users to make choices the way a tab interface does. It presents the info as a series of functions that a user can switch on or off. It’s a simpler and more instinctive way of doing things.

Each classification has its own row, with cards representing settings that can be toggled on or switched off.

The structure of the settings page resembles this:

Setting Classification

Card– Card– Card

Each card, which is a setting, has an image at leading, an explanation of the setting below the image, and in the footer area of the card is the on/off toggle and a Find out more link to a Yoast webpage that discusses that particular setting.

/ > When a setting is turned off, the image is displayed in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that suggests the setting is enabled. A user can know, actually with a glimpse, which settings in any category, are switched on or

off simply by

whether a card has color or no color. That’s a macro view of the whole settings page that permits the user to understand the introduction quickly, something that isn’t possible with the old tab-and-click-and-scroll method of navigating the settings.

A user also has the option of clicking the”find out more”button to go to a web page that explains the specific setting in information.
