GD Star Rating
Error: No rich snippet will be generated for this data ... (9 posts)

    I activated the Rich Snippets feature but it doesn't seem to work. When I test a link, I'm getting this error:

    "Error: No rich snippet will be generated for this data, because it appears to include multiple reviews of an item, but no aggregate review information. More information about aggregate reviews."


    How can I fix this?

    Many thanks in advance!

    There's something wrong with the rating block/plugin average rating configuration...
    Can you provide more information about the settings you are using?

    The problem is the required class "hreview-aggregate" is missing from page source code....

    So another couple of questions:
    1. Are you using a shortcode in posts for the article-rater - I see the Article settings for Auto-insert are off for everything except "posts displayed on front page" - if so which shortcode

    2. Are you also using another plugin for rich snippets? - there's several classes that look like coming from another plugin - or your theme perhaps. Could be a conflict.

    3. Minify: Have you tried turning off the minify and any cache plugins?

    1. When I create a rating for reviews, I don't use a shortcode in posts, but I select the rating at the 'widget' at the right of the page.

    2. I use this plugins:
    - All in one event calendar
    - cloudflare
    -contact form 7
    - display widgets
    - disqus comment system
    - enhanced text widget
    - extended categories widget
    - facebook like box
    - facebook likes you
    - fancy spoiler
    - gd star rating
    - global admin bar hide or remove
    - lazy load
    - list category posts
    - live blogging
    - mce table buttons
    - nextgen gallery
    - p3 profiler
    - posttabs
    - put
    - really simple captcha
    - Sidebar login
    - Simple local avatars
    - table of contents plus
    - theme my login
    - use google libraries
    - W3 total cache
    - wordpress popup
    - wordpress seo
    - wp optimize
    - wp original media path
    - wp smushit
    - wp youtube lyte
    - yet another related posts plugin

    3. I deactivated W3 Total Cache and tested again but no result :(

    Again many thanks for your help!

    No more ideas?

    Yes... Sorry it took so long

    The answer lies with the theme.

    I see the theme is "score" from ThemeForest. The integrated widgets don't generate the "hreview-aggregate" class required by Google for rich snippets.

    If you look on the theme demo page source code you'll see the hreview-aggregate class is missing there as well.

    As this is a commercial theme - I'd approach the developers to include the class. It's strange they haven't as the theme is advertised being intended for GD Star Ratings.
    There's also a few issues with BuddyPress and GD Star ratings

    You may be able to write a custom function to pull the aggregate - see this thread for more info and an idea for the code - Display average of a multiple rating in loop The code MAY need modding to work with the theme.
    Then enclose the result in the required class.

    Also note - the standard GD Star "Blog Rating" and the multi-article "Star Rating" widget also don't generate the class. That's not a bug - rich snippet star ratings can only apply to a single article.
