Bad Microformating

Recommended Posts


All the sites I build rely heavily on microformating of the page (for recipes) both in google search and for pinterest. I had a client point out errors after checking the microformat and then found instructions on how to remove the bad microformating from the theme (from the recipe plug-in:http://www.easyrecipeplugin.com/badmicroformats.php) 


Essentially, if the theme uses any of these (hfeedhentry and vcard), it's causing a problem. I know Pagelines uses hentry in the theme html/css and so I'm wondering if there's an easier way to get ride of the hentry beyond deleting it from the theme? (which, obviously would erase every time the theme receives an update...)

As far as I am aware and I am by no means an expert on this, those are perfectly eligible microformats. The issue would be the plugin itself. I will speak to our developers, but as far as I am concerned the issue is the plugin itself.

Please search our forums, before posting!

I appreciate the response- the plug-in does have an override option, which I've checked and took care of the majority of the warnings I was seeing. However, I'm still seeing warnings/errors when I check a post in the google's data structure tool, so I'm just not sure what's going on.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
