How to Fix Missing required field entry-title,Update,hCard Error in WordPress

LIKE & COMMENT

Recently when I tested one of my WordPress blog via Google Structured Data testing tools,i got the Following errors:

Error: Missing required field “entry-title”.
Error: Missing required field “updated”.
Error: Missing required hCard “author”.
It was weird,as Everything was already mentioned in my wordpress theme codes,but still I was getting the error and I had to resolve the issue.
What I observed that it was mentioned in the theme but not as Google wanted them to be,obviously altering the code was going to be a hectic task,as it means changing lots of codes.So,Here in this tutorial,I’ll try to help out each and everyone in an easy way.
The First step will be Navigate to appearance>Editor and open the single.php and now we will try to resolve the issue one by one(I hope you will use your Intelligence as I am not sure who coded your theme).

Fixing “Error: Missing required field “entry-title”.”

Now Find out the below code

Change the above code with the below one:


If you failed to find out the first code,in that case find out a code which uses something like “title”,now observe the difference in both the above codes carefully,the difference is just of “entry-title”,which isn’t in the first code,these are the two words google needs,add them between the quotes as you can see in the above code… remember don’t remove anything.

Fixing ” Error: Missing required field “updated”.”

Find out the below code:

Change the above code with the below one:

Failed to find out the first code? Find out something which refers to “Date” or “Time” and carefully observe the difference in both the above codes,it’s “date updated”,these are the two words google needs to fix out the problem,add them carefully.

Fixing “Error: Missing required hCard “author”.”

Find out the below code:

Change the above code with the below one:

Failed to find out the first code? Find out something which refers to “author” and carefully observe the difference in both the above codes,you have to add two lines,one above the code and one below the code,just do it and you are done.

Can’t find single.php?
There are some themes in which you will not find the file single.php,in that case find out file which resembles to single.php,like in some themes it is content.php,content-blog.php etc.

I hope this will resolve the issue,But In case it doesn’t you may ask us,or if you wish to resolve the issues immediately, share the codes of your single.php with us via pastebin,we will look into it or get in touch with us via email admin[@]techparadise.info
