    Hello, i just installed this recipe card plugin. I'm testing the plugin with one of my recipes on webpage http://featuredish.com/homemade-guacamole-recipe/ but i'm running into an issue.

    I used the google rich snippet search testing tool, and the recipe image is appearing. The link for the test is http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=http%3A%2F%2Ffeaturedish.com%2Fhomemade-guacamole-recipe%2F

    Can you please help me understand what needs to be done to fix this? Thank you!

    Hi Ronnie -

    If you scroll down on the testing tool page, you'll see a section called hrecipe. In that section, you'll see that Google did recognize the photo, but is choosing not to display it. From what I can tell, this is because Google will only display so much information in the preview. Since your blog is also set up to show your picture as the author and the reviews, it is prioritizing those things over the recipe image.

    Thank you so much for your response.

    I'm not completely savvy with these things, but was able to find and troubleshoot through online instructions on how to set up google authorship for my site so that these types of things show up on my recipes when they appear in searches. However, the whole point of me setting this up was primarily so it would show the recipe's image. So, is there anything I can do to make it show the recipe image instead? If I could, I prefer searches show the recipe image and review/star rating... I don't care much for my author picture to show, I only did what was necessary to show that cuz I thought it was required to show the recipe image.

    Any further advice on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    By the way... i followed instructions on this page https://www.foodbloggerpro.com/community/viewthread/42/#182 to set this up and if you notice the results from the google testing tool for this webpage http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http://pinchofyum.com/crockpot-mexican-chicken&html= you'll notice they have it basically set up just the same as I do, with all the same settings, yet it appears with the recipe image along with the reviews and author pic.

    I really would like to integrate this plugin throughout the rest of the recipes on my site, but would like to get this resolved if possible beforehand. Any further help on this would be appreciated. Thank you.
