Globally easy to use plugin, although some settings are not clear without a deep understanding of the hreflang attribute. I have not seen any analogues.

When I configure my url, no idea what each item is. Click the question mark, the popup short text is hard to understand. I have to google each item. Can you add an example to the text to help the new designer to get what you mean? For example, what is “the script of the variant?

Thank you to the author for making this plugin! It works well, I didn’t encounter any issues, and now prefer it over the alternative, which was Hreflang Tags Lite – an ok plugin, but not quite as polished as this one. Thanks again!
