UB Rich Snippets Release

UB Rich Snippets extension uses JSON-LD to automatically add valid structured data information (using schema.org vocabulary) about your Magento 2 site in the background. This way, the extension entirely separates the markup data from the HTML code, so you do not need to tweak the HTML elements directly to integrate the snippets.

The extension will primarily focus on supporting the following types of rich snippets:

  • Product Snippets
  • Category Snippets
  • Organization
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Facebook OpenGraph
  • Twitter card (work-in-progress)
  • Sitelinks search box
  • Website

Migrating Configurable Products

For anyone familiar with Magento 1, it’s quite common that a configurable product is one of the most popular product types and powerful when you sell complex products with multiple attributes.

Before we dig deeper, let’s talk briefly about what simple products versus configurable products are. Continue reading
