WordPress Admin dashboard
To access the settings page for wp-parsely:
- Log in to the WordPress Admin dashboard for a VIP Platform WordPress site.
- Select “Settings –> Parse.ly” from the left hand navigation menu in the WP Admin.
More detailed guidance for configuration options in the WP Admin can be found in Parse.ly’s WordPress documentation.
Decoupled / headless
The wp-parsely WordPress plugin is compatible with decoupled sites that use a WordPress backend. Some configurations in the client application’s code are required in order for the plugin to work as expected. Review Parse.ly’s decoupled documentation and reach out to the Support team if there are remaining questions about configuration.
Metadata is automatically included in one of Parse.ly’s recognized formats (either JSON-LD or repeated meta tags) on all of a site’s core posts and pages. For Custom Post Types, this must be selectively enabled in the Parse.ly Settings page in the WordPress Admin dashboard. If valid JSON-LD metadata is implemented outside the Parse.ly plugin, metadata can be excluded by configuring the
wp_parsely_metadata() filter. By default on VIP, the non-conflicting meta tags format is enabled. This can be modified in the wp-parsely settings page in the WordPress Admin dashboard.
If Parse.ly page metadata is causing issues on a site, report the issues in a Support ticket so that the Support team can assist. In some cases, improvements can be made to the plugin to reconcile a site’s metadata.
