    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Greetings Everyone, I searched for this on the net and here and didnt come up with anything, so here goes.

    Apparantly within the past week or so Google has made changes to it's webmaster tools under > search appearance > structured data, I'm getting a slew of errors, actually all pages are showing this: Missing: entry-title Missing: updated. There is this verbiage on the page: This property is missing in the html markup or was not properly highlighted in the structured data markup helper. This may prevent the rich snippet from appearing.

    I have been able to get the Authorship working with the Google Authorship Widget, but it is super ugly.

    I still can't get the following errors fixed though;
    Error: Missing required field "entry-title".
    Error: Missing required field "updated"

    Anybody help with this one?

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    Yes, I do know about this thread - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/google-structured-data-missing-required-field-authorship-thumbnails-gone?replies=13#post-5044548

    The tutorial they mention on that page is not perfect and doesn't completely work as this theme's coding is different.

    Having the same problems here.

    Error: Missing required field "entry-title".
    Error: Missing required field "updated".
    Error: Missing required hCard "author".

    Acknowledgement or a possible fix for the problem would be nice.

    For "entry-title" change in Single.php

    This line:
    <h1 class="post-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    To this
    <h1 class="post-title entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>

    I have made all the necessary amendments to the single.php file, the errors previously mentioned appear under the 'bookmarks' section in the hatom-feed.

    I can't for the life of me find out which bit this relates to and what else requires editing.

    I figured out how to fix these two, but not the hCard author one:

    Error: Missing required field "entry-title".
    Error: Missing required field "updated".

    In content.php, search for "post-title" and then add "entry-title" after it so that the line becomes this:

    <h2 class="post-title entry-title">

    Then search for "post-date" and change the line to this:
    <p class="post-date date updated"><?php the_time('j M, Y'); ?></p>

    Do the same thing for content-featured.php and those two errors should go away.

    @Taikahessu

    Thanx a lot for your contribution.... i tried to give it all, but unfortunately still got the : Missing required hCard "author" in google webmastertools.

    Greetings...

    Strange thing for me is that I added this code

    <p class="post-date date updated"><?php the_time('j M, Y'); ?></p>

    But it didn't make a difference on the Error: Missing required field "updated".

    I added the code to both content.php and content-featured.php

    Am I missing something?

    Hey everyone,

    I got the Error: Missing required hCard "author". FIXED!!

    Go to single.php and search for this line <?php the_content(); ?>

    After that line add the code

    <span class="vcard author"><span class="fn">

    by <a href="https://plus.google.com/b/110952166677946651102/110952166677946651102"
    rel="author"><?php the_author() ?>

    </span></span>

    The numbers will be your google+ profile ID

    Now if I could only get the Error: Missing required field "updated" fixed.

    @thespinsterz

    Try adding a tag with only that specific parameter class="updated", like:

    <span class="updated"><?php the_modified_date('F j, Y'); ?></span>

    I noticed some weird differences when using multiple class parameters. I recall that it worked only in some cases...

    You must build a correct hierarchy of classes. Nest classes like:

    <div class="hentry">
      <h1 class="entry-title"></h1>
      <div class="entry">
        <span class="updated">Date</span>
      </div>
    </div>

    This is my full single.php:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    <section class="content">
    
    	<?php get_template_part('inc/page-title'); ?>
    
    	<div class="pad group">
    
    		<?php while ( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
    			<article <?php post_class(); ?>>
    				<div class="post-inner group">
    
    					<h1 class="post-title entry-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    					<p class="post-byline"><?php _e('by','hueman'); ?>
                        <span class="vcard author"><span class="fn">
                        <a href="https://plus.google.com/+HeikkiLahtela" target="_blank" rel="author"><?php the_author() ?></a>
                        </span></span> · <span class="updated"><?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?></span></p>
    
    					<?php get_template_part('inc/post-formats'); ?>
    
    					<div class="clear"></div>
    
    					<div class="entry">
    						<div class="entry-inner">
    							<div class="entry-content"><?php the_content(); ?></div>
                                <p class="post-byline"><?php _e('by','hueman'); ?>
                                <span class="vcard author"><span class="fn">
                                <a href="https://plus.google.com/+HeikkiLahtela" target="_blank" rel="author"><?php the_author() ?></a>
                                </span></span>
                                · Last modified <span class="updated"><?php the_modified_date('F j, Y'); ?></span></p>
    							<?php wp_link_pages(array('before'=>'<div class="post-pages">'.__('Pages:','hueman'),'after'=>'</div>')); ?>
    						</div>
    						<div class="clear"></div>	
    
                            <?php the_tags('<p class="post-tags"><span>'.__('Tags:','hueman').'</span> ','','</p>'); ?>
    
    					</div><!--/.entry-->
    
    				</div><!--/.post-inner-->
    			</article><!--/.post-->
    		<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    		<div class="clear"></div>
    
    		<?php //the_tags('<p class="post-tags"><span>'.__('Tags:','hueman').'</span> ','','</p>'); ?>
    
    		<?php if ( !ot_get_option( 'author-bio' ) && get_the_author_meta( 'description' ) ): ?>
    			<div class="author-bio">
    				<div class="bio-avatar"><?php echo get_avatar(get_the_author_meta('user_email'),'128'); ?></div>
    				<p class="bio-name"><?php the_author_meta('display_name'); ?></p>
    				<p class="bio-desc"><?php the_author_meta('description'); ?></p>
    				<div class="clear"></div>
    			</div>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<?php if ( ot_get_option( 'post-nav' ) == 'content') { get_template_part('inc/post-nav'); } ?>
    
    		<?php if ( ot_get_option( 'related-posts' ) != '1' ) { get_template_part('inc/related-posts'); } ?>
    
    		<?php comments_template('/comments.php',true); ?>
    
    	</div><!--/.pad-->
    
    </section><!--/.content-->
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Did this work?

    I copied and pasted your full code and yeah, it worked!

    Something I wonder about though is the Error: Missing required hCard "author".

    That shows up underneath a category page. Is there a to tell google not to search for the author card on category pages? Or something like that?

    I have attached a screenshot of what I am talking about http://screencast.com/t/DhdOKFisNU. I get that error underneath any sort of category URL.

    Oh and THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

    Google says "The URL/page contains a single article (or subsequent versions of the article) or single piece of content, by the same author. This means that the page isn’t a list of articles or an updating feed.":

    http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.fi/2013/08/relauthor-frequently-asked-advanced.html

    That is however a GOOD question what to do with the homepage and other NON-content pages. My two cents would be to remove the author code from the front page and other places where there are NO ACTUAL CONTENT. It seems that according to Google, rel=author code should only be used in "Posts" in WordPress (or in "Pages" if they have original written content).

    My authorship image is not displaying currently so I have to do some more tests. Snippet is working as my name is seen on the SERP but I cannot say why the image is not.

    PS. It would be nice to have a comment from Alexander on this ...

    You're welcome @sebarbrosur. :)

    However, Google Authorship is not supposed to work on Main or Home pages.
    Authorship is meant only for pages with real content, like blog posts.

    This is clearly stated in my previous post. Information is from Google directly.

    Just wanted to inform here that my face has started showing up on the Google results again.

    I optimized my site heavily and added WP Super Cache and some other plugins to decrease the loading time significantly. From 3 seconds to a 1 second. I'm quite certain this had an effect on the issue.

    I will soon write more about the optimizations I did on my site. But I guess that's more or less off-topic.

    I solved 2 errors Missing: author and Missing: updated. But Missing: entry-title is not getting solved. I added entry-title to class, but it's not working. Structured Data Testing Tool is showing Error: Missing required field "entry-title".

    Here is the post URL for which it's showing this error.
    http://www.adequatecontent.com/how-to-create-your-first-content-marketing-strategy/

    Please help me how to solve it or I missed anything?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Heikki, I've found your detailed solution on your website lathela.com .
    Thanks for that.

    Would it be possible to not have the google plus link in the byline?

    I have a rel author link to my G+ profile in every content page (injected by YOAST).

    And I want my byline link to go to the "about me" page of my website.

    Would it be possible?

    And a question for Alex: are you planning on including these changes in any future release?

    CHEERS

    I am also having a similar problem with my website http://www.hosbeg.com and http://www.kojoenoch.com

    I have searched all over the internet to find a solution to it to no avail. The theme that I am using seems to have no solution so it is likely I will have to change it.
    Can anybody help me?
