Thanks for this easy to follow and understand video, Steve. I’d tried
Yoast’s and 2 other “how to’s” before learning about yours on the WordPress
forum. That actually sent me to an earlier one, pre-current plugin update,
but searching your list of videos led me here. Now I feel I have set up the
plugin properly! Your instructional style is excellent. Really appreciate
your sharing this with all of us not-so-technical types!
