  • Additions
  • You can also select the Description Excerpt Separator = by default the plugin highlights the two recommended separators  the dash – and or the ampersand |. You can select any of the other separators but it is not recommended.

Note: In the upcoming version 2.7.1 the recommended separators will no longer be marked as “recommended”. This is because the description does not need to support old browsers or old screen readers. (Quoted by Sybre Waaijer)
