Support » Plugin: AMP » 60% of my AMP posts have Critical issues

  • I use this plugin and Yoast’s Glue AMP Plugin. Automattic (this plugin creator) has been an amazing part of my web experience in the past.

    3/22/07 update: Now just under 20% of my posts have critical issues. I think the fact that I added text (a phone number) in the Yoast glue plugin where the design header is may have caused the critical error issue.

    Update after I initially post this: When I manual do the Google AMP test on a few randomly chosen on AMP URLS (for which Webmaster tools said they had errors just 1 hour ago), Google says each Valid AMP page.

    Per Google Webmaster Tools yesterday, 60% of my AMP posts had critical issues. Prior to the update above, I expect this % to rise.

    Each post has these 5 critical issues

    Issue Severity Pages with issues
    1 AMP markup missing or incorrect Critical
    2 User-authored JavaScript found on page Critical
    3 Prohibited or invalid use of HTML Tag Critical
    4 Syntax error Critical
    5 Invalid usage of AMP tags Critical

    Worse yet, the Google search AMP tester froze when seeing if this page is AMP friendly.

    I use a Genesis WP framework that I virtually haven’t altered, so if there is a site that this plugin should work on, it would be mine. However, it doesn’t.

    I would be willing to pay for a premium version of this plugin that has support. This plugin’s support requests in the past 5 or so months haven’t been responded to.

    I am grateful that the authors of this plugin took the time to make it. However, it concerns me that the WP plugin repository says this plugin (and Yoast’s Glue for AMP plugin) hasn’t been updated in 5 months or so.

    I endured with this plugin after spending a week seeking outside help to make it work (because support was so terrible), and for about a month it seemed to be a valid plugin.

    However, in the last couple of months we have seen traffic drop, and upon checking the status of AMP content we have almost a thousand critical issues, and when attempting to use Google tools to check the problem the pages are unreachable.

    This is simply unacceptable from a professional organization dictating to us how the web should be. They have totally failed to provide the simple tools and the basic support to implement their “grand dream”, it’s a failed body with a failed goal and I firmly believe that WordPress should be removing AMP and this plugin from their repository.

    I am convinced that thousands more people using this plugin have actually been harmed by it and simply do not know.
