• I am liking this plugin for the most part, however am a little confused as to why it is adding around 150 entries to wp_postmeta for each post.
    It seems to add a new data line for every possible schema type with a ‘a:0:{}’ value assigned. I would have thought it would only add entries related to the activated schema.
    How can this be disabled?

    Hi there!

    As we can say that we only add data when schema is on that post but in your case we do not understand it clearly. Can you give us more details on it.?

    When I go into the database through PHPMYAdmin and then open the postmeta table I suddenly have around 10000 new lines of entry after activating your plugin. When I go into the details of it I find around 150 new entries per post. Each entry appears to be a holding for a different type of schema with ‘a:0:{}’ assigned as the value. So you are correct that data has not been added as there is nothing in there, however the entry has been created in the database table causing bloat. These entries should not be created as they are redundant. Eg if I am only using service schema on a post, I shouldnt see the meta fields created for every other type of schema. But instead I see an entry for music_playlist_track, tv_series_actor, faq_question, perfomer, how_to_step and many many others. I don’t understand why these fields are being created
    Have a look at a test site and see if you see the same.

    Great thanks. I’ll look out for the change before using it on a live site to ensure there is no unwanted data to remove!
