There are a number of SEO plugins available for WordPress, and already one (a fork of a WordPress plugin) available for ClassicPress. Why make another?

Without naming names, we’ve found that most WordPress SEO plugins either offer a bewildering array of options, often presented in a less than clear way, or they go to the other extreme and try to automate everything at the expense of flexibility. There needs to be a middle ground offering, and ZP SEO is our answer.

ZP SEO is a lightweight, fast, free ClassicPress plugin to make SEO truly simple. It’s flexible and functional enough to be genuinely useful without swamping you in settings. For example, the settings for custom post type archives don’t appear unless you actually have custom post types with public archives! We’re working on expanding its functionality but in a way that doesn’t unduly add to a webmaster’s workload (or cognitive load).

ZP SEO is the first SEO plugin created specifically for the ClassicPress platform. It is NOT a fork of a WordPress plugin.

Right now it is under heavy development and we don’t yet advise using it on a production site. We’ll remove this notice when we feel it’s ready to support a mission-critical site.

ZP SEO also works with WordPress 4.9 and later.

ZP SEO Pro is under development and will be a competitively-priced premium add-on.
