Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Rank Math integration

    Hi, I noticed ACF is integrated with Rank Math. As a Pods Friend, I use Rank Math and Pods plugin, I would like to suggest an integration. Seem Rank Math support is advising so:

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention.
    
    Unfortunately, that plugin uses a custom implementation of the custom fields and Rank Math can only read the normal WordPress custom fields when adding them to the titles and meta settings.
    
    The way to achieve this integration would be for their team to implement our Content Analysis API: https://rankmath.com/kb/content-analysis-api/
    
    You would need to contact the developers of the plugin and show them the link above.
    
    Many known companies have already added the compatibility, as it takes a few hours:
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/divi/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/elementor/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/themify-builder/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/page-builder-framework/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/flothemes/
    
    I hope that helps.

    I wonder if we can cook something up using other custom field plugin integrations they already have. Is this integration in the ACF free or in the pro version? Or is the ACF integration in RankMath itself?

    Hi
    For starters, will I forward this link https://rankmath.com/kb/advanced-custom-fields/

    RankMath support told answered this:
    The integration with ACF is done inside our plugin through a specific module called ACF that you can enable when that plugin is also installed on your website.

    That is handled in this folder: wp-content\plugins\seo-by-rank-math\includes\modules\acf

    Having said that, there are also other places where we make use of ACF and one of them is the option to pull data from them directly with the variable %customfield(field-name)% that uses the ACF function get_field().

    Hope this helps clarify your doubts.

    Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions.

    I hope this helps,

    I’m more than happy to integrate with Rank Math SEO based on that integration but it does look like part of it uses a certain build process that I’d have to get set up with.

    Can you ask Rank Math SEO if they are open to a PR to https://github.com/rankmath/seo-by-rank-math that implements a new Pods module based on the ACF module? If you get the OK from them then I will spend the time to write it up and submit it to them for inclusion.

    If they are not interested then it would take a bit of extra time to get the module PHP/JS to work outside the context of their plugin code so it can be included in our Pods SEO plugin.

    Hi
    This answer I received of Rank Math:

    Hello,
    
    We have talked it over with the developers and the response we got is that we don’t want to add compatibility code in our plugin because it will increase the plugin size and in the future, it will become difficult to manage all this code.
    
    Our Content Analysis API is very easy to use. The developer will only need basic knowledge of JavaScript and WP hooks. It’s a simple JavaScript code that doesn’t require any compiler to build the files.
    
    Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions.

    I hope this helps you,
    See the api: The way to achieve this integration would be for their team to implement our Content Analysis API: https://rankmath.com/kb/content-analysis-api/

    In that case, it will take a bit of time but we’re working on some tweaks in Pods 2.8.x that will give us the ability to add this to our Pods SEO plugin.

    Thanks, looks promising, I will explore the Pods SEO plugin and look forward to the 2.8.x release.
