    If you’re going to include BreadcrumbList markup for the unlinked breadcrumbs, make sure you’re using something like:

    <span property="itemListElement" typeof="ListItem">
        <span property="name">%htitle%</span>
        <meta property="url" content="%link%">
        <meta property="position" content="%position%">
    </span>

    as your unlinked breadcrumb template. The key thing your current unlinked templates are missing is the <meta property="url" content="%link%"> portion.

    Thank you for the detailed reply.
    I have added them in all Home, Page, and Post. Should this be fine?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    We added <meta property=”url” content=”%link%”> But still the error persists. Could you please help?

    Thank you

    Looking on the linked page, it looks like your unlinked breadcrumb template for pages till doesn’t have the <meta property=”url” content=”%link%”>. So either that was set but the breadcrumb trail isn’t actually being generated by Breadcrumb NavXT, or that setting never got updated (maybe the “save changes” button wasn’t pressed).

    Lastly, since it looks like you have the Yoast SEO schema data in your header, you may want to remove the schema.org breadcrumbList markup from the Breadcrumb NavXT generated breadcrumb trail. Otherwise, you will have two instances of essentially the same data and that may throw off the various checking tools.
