[resolved] Google Plus Authorship (5 posts)

    Thanks for the Google Plus author link.

    My problem is that Google's Structured Data Testing Tool finds that my site's home page (The Editor's Blog) "does not contain authorship markup." I tested a handful of other pages and posts from my site and there's no problem--authorship is working for them. It's just the home page that doesn't show the author markup.

    Is that a glitch or had you intended that? Is there something else I should try? Thanks.

    Do you have the URL for your Google+ page entered in under "Google Plus Default Profile" in the General Settings of All in One SEO Pack? If not, try doing that; if so, then this may be a glitch, and I'll test it.

    Yes, I have the Google+ URL entered in the right place in General Settings. And every page and post I tested, even including the results pages from monthly archives and tag-word searches, shows authorship. It's just the site's home page that doesn't verify authorship and apparently doesn't have authorship markup.

    I checked the source code for that page and compared it to the others; the rel="author" link is missing, though the other All in One SEO info is there. Just that one line is missing.

    Maybe the home page is different because it doesn't have a file extension?

    The one that doesn't work: The Editor's Blog

    And two that do work: Twist Words and Writing Advice

    Thanks for your help.

    This does look like a bug, and I believe I have a fix for it; if it isn't fixed in the next release, which should be out soon, let me know here and I'll troubleshoot it further.

    Thank you very much. I'll check back in after the next release.
