  • I’m having a hell of a time fixing these google webmaster tools micro format errors for “Missing: updated” and “Missing: author”. A developer that has done great work for me in the past told me all I have to to is:

    1) Find:

    <?php the_date(); ?> and <?php the_author(); ?>

    2) Wrap them with a span as follows:

    <span class="post-date updated"><?php the_date(); ?></span>
    
    <span class="vcard author post-author"><span class="fn"><?php the_author(); ?></span></span>

    2a) If you don’t want them to be displayed to the user or it’s messing up your design, do this instead:

    <span class="post-date updated" style="display:none;"><?php the_date(); ?></span>
    
    <span class="vcard author post-author” style=“display:none;”><span class="fn"><?php the_author(); ?></span></span>

    This worked on other sites for me and it worked to fix the author error but it isn’t fixing the updated error.

    2b) If the_date or the_author doesn’t exist add the code anywhere in the body of the page’s (or post’s) relevant template php file.

    How can I fix this?
