Google Structued Markup Validation

Recommended Posts

It appears that category and archive pages are not passing google structured markup testing -  getting the error 
Error: Missing required field "updated".
This is because just after the excerpt, some additional code is required - something like 
echo '<br /><span class="updated">Revised: ' . get_the_modified_time('F jS, Y') . '</span>';
The question is where is the best place to add the code.
In addition individual posts show an error. The solution to that is to modify functions.php and post will then validate correctly.
add_filter( 'the_content', 'hatom_mod_post_content');
add_filter('the_content', 'add_mod_hatom_data');
 /* mod content */
function hatom_mod_post_content ($content) {
  if ( in_the_loop() && !is_page() ) {
    $content = '<div class="entry-content">'.$content.'</div>';
  return $content;
 /* add hatom data */
function add_mod_hatom_data($content) {
    $t = get_the_modified_time('F jS, Y');
    $author = get_the_author();
    $title = get_the_title();
      if(is_single()) {
        $content .= '<div class="hatom-extra" style="color:#bbb;font-size:13px;margin:15px 0"><span class="entry-title">'.$title.'</span> - last modified: <span class="updated"> '.$t.'</span> by <span class="author vcard"><span class="fn">My Name</span>
    return $content;

      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!
