A WPSSO Core add-on to remove outdated / incomplete Schema Microdata, leaving the Google recommended Schema JSON-LD markup untouched.

Is your Schema *Microdata getting in the way of Google reading its preferred Schema JSON-LD markup?*

Do you need to remove incorrect / incomplete Schema *Microdata from your theme templates?*

Do you need to remove Schema *Microdata added by 3rd party plugins from your content?*

Is Pinterest picking up duplicate / incorrect Schema from your theme templates?

Are you using the WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on, and want to remove old Schema Microdata from your theme templates?

The WPSSO Strip Schema Microdata (aka WPSSO SSM) add-on removes Schema Microdata markup from the webpage body section, leaving the (Google preferred and recommended) Schema JSON-LD markup and Schema meta tags in the head section untouched.

WPSSO SSM filters the webpage content dynamically, allowing you to activate / deactivate the add-on as desired to enable / disable the removal of Schema Microdata. A "Strip Microdata" settings page also allows you to enable the removal of duplicate / conflicting meta tags from the webpage head section.

WPSSO SSM filters are very fast — generally running in under 0.003 seconds — and enabling the removal of duplicate meta tags won't add much to this, but I would suggest not enabling that feature unless required. If your theme and/or other plugins are adding duplicate meta tags, it's always best to disable them at their source instead of filtering them out afterwards — but if that's not possible, then you should find this WPSSO SSM feature very useful. ;-)

WPSSO Strip Schema Microdata is incredibly fast and coded for performance — WPSSO Core and its add-ons make full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching), and load only the PHP library files and object classes they need, keeping their code small, fast, and light. WPSSO Core and its add-ons are also fully tested and compatible with PHP v7.x (PHP v5.4 or better required).

How do you know what it's doing? ;-)

WPSSO Strip Schema Microdata (aka WPSSO SSM) includes a handy activity summary at the bottom of each webpage (as a hidden HTML comment) to inform you of how many matches it removed, and how long it took. Use your browser's "View Source" feature and scroll down to the bottom of the webpage HTML source to review the activity summary.
