    Hi @dkpminus,

    I’m working on it! 🙂

    I expect the first signs of better title manipulation to be released with TSF 3.1.

    A free extension will soon follow that will mimic the annotated behavior (to some extent).
    For more information, see and feel free to add suggestions to:

    That’s good to know, thank you for the quick reply.

    As a followup question what about Robots Meta Settings for custom post types? Specifically the NoIndex Robots Settings options.

    Last question! What about the ability to not include certain post types or select taxonomy in the sitemap?

    Hi @dkpminus,

    CPT support:
    Each supported CPT will have SEO settings on their pages and terms, to allow setting “noindex”, among other things.

    Using the “noindex” option on any page, post, or CPT post, will exclude it from the sitemap, too. It will save you the trouble maintaining the filters below.

    Adjusting all posts on CPT:
    Adding global options that affect all posts from a CPT is something we’re still evaluating. This consideration will probably be postponed until we work on a redesigned interface.
    In the meantime, you can use filters, like:

    add_filter( 'the_seo_framework_robots_meta_array', 'my_robots_adjustments', 10, 1 );
    function my_robots_adjustments( $meta = array() ) {
    	// Set noindex and nofollow on WooCommerce products.
    	if ( is_singular() && 'product' === get_post_type() ) {
    		$meta['noindex'] = 'noindex';
    		$meta['nofollow'] = 'nofollow'; // why do you use nofollow!?
    	return $meta;

    Like the filter above, not all filters are considered by the SEO Bar. This is something we’re working on by standardizing every single feature; so, the administrative interface might not reflect your use of filters.

    Remove all posts of a CPT from sitemaps:
    To exclude certain post types from the sitemap, use this filter:

    add_filter( 'the_seo_framework_sitemap_exclude_cpt', function( $post_types = array() ) {
    	$post_types[] = 'product'; // Excludes WooCommerce products.
    	return $post_types;
    } );

    I hope this helps 🙂 Cheers!

    Awesome to hear this is coming.

    For what it’s worth, I’d like to use some sort of title formatting on WooCommerce products.

    For instance: %%woocommerce_product_category%% %%woocommerce_product%% Reviews | %%sitename%%

    Doable using Yoast, I know, but I’m loving the lightweight/reliable nature of TSEOF. Massive thanks Sybre!
