  • Within your template files try this

    <time class="updated hidden" datetime="%2$s"></time>

    Hope this fixes Googles webmastertools “updated missing”. I’m waiting for reindexing and post here if it works.

    Sorry! That was wrong

    <time class="entry-date updated" datetime="%2$s" >%3$s</time>

    did the trick.

    It seems “updated” has to be at the end! I’v removed the attribute “pubdate” too because its HTML5 invalid.

    Thanks so much for your quick answer. I am going to make the changes and will let you know.
    Have a great day

    You can test your solution here

    It seems I am doing something wrong…still get when checking :
    Error: Missing required field “entry-title”.
    Error: Missing required field “updated”.

    Did you enter the code in page.php?

    Yes and it depends on your template and your content

    page.php – static content
    single.php – Articles

    Depending on your template look for someting like
    if it supports different types of articles

    Let me know which template you use and provide a link please.

    Some Details and Examples

    HTML markup snippet

    <h1 class="entry-title">X3D Torii Itsukushima Schrein</h1>
    <div class="entry-meta">
    <span class="meta-prep meta-prep-author">Posted on </span><a href="" rel="bookmark"><time class="entry-date updated" datetime="2014-01-11T15:31:06+00:00">11. Januar 2014</time></a><span class="meta-sep"> by </span> <span class="author vcard"><a class="url fn n" href="" title="View all posts by ELExGspot">ELExGspot</a></span></div>

    Snippet from single.php
    <span class="meta-prep meta-prep-author">Posted on </span><a href="%1$s" rel="bookmark"><time class="entry-date updated" datetime="%2$s" >%3$s</time></a><span class="meta-sep"> by </span> <span class="author vcard"><a class="url fn n" href="%4$s" title="%5$s">%6$s</a></span>

    Thanks again
    The template is Delicate and this is the URL:


    Some changes on Delicate needed

    1. find index.php (template)
    2. line 16 add class=”entry-title” to <h2> tag
    3. line 17 change

    <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>


    <time class="entry-date updated" datetime="<?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>" ><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?></time>

    attachement.php and author.php accordingly

    This will fix it 😉

    oh, my god. Thanks so much for this, I do not know how to thank you…let me know if I can share a page or whatever you need in my social network. Really. It is working. Big big thank you from Madrid

    I’m glad I could help, and of course it would be nice if you could set a link to from somewhere, or share any link from there whichever you like.

    Please mark this topic “resolved” if it is 😉



    Hi ELExG,

    I’m also having the same problem.

    I recently bought and started using the Lynette theme from It’s clean and beautiful theme but recently I have been getting lots of errors on my Structured Data on Google Webmaster Tools. These errors are “Missing: entry-title” “Missing: author” “Missing: updated” that have been appearing in all of my posts, tag, categories, date, and author.

    I found lots of sites that provide instructions about how to get rid of these errors but their themes are completely different to mine. Most of them have suggested to edit/add the codes at single.php but my single.php codes are completely different and I’m afraid to add or edit anything as I’m not good with technical stuff.

    I’ve also contacted bluchic support to help me rectify these errors but they are unable to help at this stage. They claimed that those errors are appearing because their themes don’t have microformats built in yet. They also said that they are now working and adding those Microformats in their themes and should be active for the next update. They can’t tell me when they will release the update.

    I am a little bit impatient, as I am concerned about the status and SEO ranking of my site if I leave it any longer. Do you know if this will have a huge negative impact on my site if I don’t fix those Hentry Microformat errors? If you know how to fix this please feel free to help me.

    Thanks a lot!!
