Support » Theme: Hueman » Googles Structured Data Update

  • 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?

  • Yes, I do know about this thread –

    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.

    Same here. Would appreciate any help.

    Anyone figure out a solution to this? I have the same problem.

    Same here …. Tried de solution from Roberto, but that didn’t work (for me.)

    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.


    works for me as well….thanx a lot for your solution.

    No problem. Does anyone know how to fix the hCard “author” error?

    Here is an article about this problem and microformats in general:

    Hope it helps.


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


    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=”″
    rel=”author”><?php the_author() ?>


    The numbers will be your google+ profile ID

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


    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…
