What is White Labeling?
White Labeling allows you to hide the original identity of a plugin and replace it with your brand name. This will make it appear that you own the plugin.
White labeling is usually done when you are building websites for a client and you want to show that you are the whole and sole developer of that website. You can white-label plugins and take credit for all the features and functions of that plugin.
Schema Pro can also be white-labeled and be presented as your plugin branding.
How to Use it?
Here are the steps you can follow to white label Schema Pro plugin –
Navigate to the Settings > Schema Pro > White Label
You can change the following information through the white label settings –
- Plugin Name: This will replace the name of the plugin with your brand name.
- Plugin Short Name: This will replace the plugin short name that may be visible in the backend.
- Plugin Description: This will replace the original plugin description that was added by default.
- Author / Agency Name: This will replace the original author’s name with your preferred name as the author.
- Author / Agency URL: This will replace the URL link to our website.
Hide White Label Settings: This will hide the white-label settings from anyone accessing your website’s backend. Please note that the white-label settings will appear again when the plugin is deactivated and then activated again on a website. If you wish to hide the white label settings permanently, you can refer to our article about how you can hide white-label settings permanently.
This is how the white-labeled plugin will appear on the plugin’s page
Does White Labeling cause changes in the Code?
If we remove the mentions of Schema Pro from the code, even the WordPress will not identify that the Schema Pro plugin is the one being used and so it will not detect any future updates from Schema Pro.
However, some plugins take a different approach and can help you white label WordPress itself completely. Hide My WP Ghost plugin is an example of this. If you need to white-label your website completely, you can consider using similar plugins.
