    Using Yoast 11.5 and Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool, I found the following in my structured data:

    
    author
    	
    @type
    	
    Thing
    @id  https://www.hypnoticdreams.com/schema/person/daniel/#author
    name A value for the name field is required.
    
    

    The URL in the @id doesn’t exist, and Google is reporting that the NAME is a required field missing a value.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Enabling Author Archives from Search Appearance settings fixed it to me. Although this seems to be a plugin bug, because it outputs wrong id and creates a separate Person object with different id.

    I am NOT going to enable author archives. I’m the only person posting to my web site, and I altered the author byline link to take visitors to my About Me page.

    The latest update’s fixed the problem.

    No. Yoast 11.6 fixed the name. But the URL in the @id is even more ridiculous than before.

    @id    https://www.hypnoticdreams.com/#/schema/person/f4f5495a034c61c50f277d2bb1e80088
    name   Daniel
    description  Reclusive evil mind-controlling genius, and a science fiction author who creates whole universes in my head.
    
    

    I don’t know where it’s getting that URL from, but it’s not in my user settings.
