    It comes from the Featured Image of the WordPress Page and Post editor. Add a featured image and then the plugin knows what image to use.

    OK. Fixed it but now I get a warning:

    The attribute image.width has an invalid value.
    “ImageObject”,”url”:”http:\/\/catskillsbarnwedding.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2016\/01\/Untitled-1.jpg”,”height”:60,”width”:600},

    If you clicked through on the warning message, you can see the reason on the (AMP) Articles page, which have image width requirement “The width of the image, in pixels. Images should be at least 696 pixels wide.”

    The data created by the structured data plugin is valid. Google’s Testing Tool also tests for validity for their Google product requirements, AMP Article in this case. The error and warning messages discussed here are for their product feature requirements.

    So I should ignore?

    That depends, factors might be how much time you / your team have to create a new image vs the value to you of getting that page exactly right and eligible for Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP).

    In other words, if you already have a bigger image use it. If AMP is news to you then ignore it and in the future try to get images that are wide enough. Hope that helps.

    Thanks

    I have one more question. I made an image exactly 600 x 60 and I am getting a warning. see below

    The attribute image.width has an invalid value.
    “ImageObject”,”url”:”http:\/\/www.thenaturalgardens.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2016\/01\/logo600.jpg”,”height”:60,”width”:600}

    I get the same message if I make the image 696 x 60.

    What am I doing wrong? Steve

    If you get a chance, could you answer this question. Thanks

    It sounds like with the new image you’re doing everything right. It could be an issue Google’s structured data testing tool, it’s known to have a sporadic issues. The best we can do is try to meet the guidelines and as Google improves their tools then perhaps the issue will go away. If you would like us to help investigate your site and situation, you may want to consider the support package: http://www.schemaapp.com/product-pricing/

    The problem is with the plugin. It’s because the image width IS incorrect. So is the height, BTW, because these is supposed to be quotes around the data part of the JSON data, {“height”:100,”width”:100} should be {“height”:”100″,”width”:”100″}.

    Hi @mynamealreadyexists, I don’t understand why you think the problem is with the plugin? Please tell me more.

    About the quotes, in the Javascript / JSON specification numeric values do not have double quotes – double quotes are for strings. I prefer to write according to the specification and Google’s Testing Tool is generous handling both ways so it’s a non-issue.

    Ok, I found in another support ticket that Google has started to show warnings for these in the SDTT for ImageObject widths (but not height, not number values in Review … ) It is a recent change to their testing tool as this was not an issue before now.

    Mainly, cause I put quotes around the number in the left hand side of validation tool,manually, and it works. Without quotes, the error. If google is broke then just sit around and hope they fix it one day, I’ll change local copy of plugin and continue for success while you wait.

    Also, tag entry or display on this comment section is broken. I put in “amp”, display is “&”. Maybe you wait for Google to fix that.

    Sorry for “attitude”, just busting your chops… lol.

    Same algorithm (even exact code possibly too) for test tool’s validation likely also used for evaluation of pages by Google’s system beyond the testing tool. Adapt plugin to this and plugin is then better than other plugin that does not adapt. If Google fixes the issue on their end, then adapt again before the competition does and then the plugin get more copies distributed due to competitive advantage imparted to those that consume copies of plugin.

    Hoping plugin will strive & grow, not wither away like some burnt out coal. I’m here pushing on plugin’s chest and shouting for it to breathe. C’mone little fella, you can do it.
