    If a post is made via a 3rd party plugin, then the JSON-LD structure data not outputting.

    Hello @dibbyo456

    Thank you for contacting the support and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Can you please tell us the steps to reproduce it so we can check on our end?

    Looking forward to helping you.

    @mythemeshop Github probably the best place to describe this type of bugs for the easy markup codes. Anyway I’m trying my best to describe it.

    I’m using an plugin to generate posts but you can reproduce the same issue with FakerPress plugin.

    1) Generate a post using FakePress, then open the posts and view the json-ld section, you will get something like this –

    2) now update the post, then check source again, you will get something like this –

    See the difference? The json-ld markups not coming up unless we hit the update button.

    Hello @dibbyo456

    Thank you for helping us with the steps.

    We have done that intentionally.

    There are some Schema types where we can not autofill the data, for instance, the Recipe etc.

    Either, we need can complicate the process by adding more fields in the general settings of the plugin or we are auto-filling the data only on new posts or if someone updates an older post(s).

    In the future, we will be bringing a tool which can scan all the posts for the missing Schema data and notify the users.

    For now, one needs to manually enter the data on the older posts or update them to fetch the new information.

    If you have any suggestions for this, please let us know. We would be more than happy to consider them.

    Thank you.

    Hello @dibbyo456

    If you still want to use the data from the settings as the fallback then please add the following code in the functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'rank_math/json_ld', function( $json_ld, $json ) {
        if ( is_singular() && ! isset( $json_ld['richSnippet'] ) && $fallback_schema = \RankMath\Helper::get_settings( "titles.pt_{$json->post->post_type}_default_rich_snippet" ) ) {
            $json_ld['richSnippet'] = [
                '@context'         => '',
                '@type'            => \RankMath\Helper::get_settings( "titles.pt_{$json->post->post_type}_default_article_type" ),
                'headline'         => $json->parts['title'],
                'description'      => $json->parts['desc'],
                'datePublished'    => $json->parts['published'],
                'dateModified'     => $json->parts['modified'],
                'publisher'        => $json->get_publisher( (array) $json->post ),
                'mainEntityOfPage' => [
                    '@type' => 'WebPage',
                    '@id'   => $json->parts['canonical'],
                'author'           => [
                    '@type' => 'Person',
                    'name'  => $json->parts['author'],
            $json->add_prop( 'thumbnail', $json_ld['richSnippet'] );
        return $json_ld;
    }, 11, 2);

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    @mythemeshop That’s very nice of you to give this code. Thank you so much. I will try and let you know.

    One more thing, I’m still waiting for the API docs. For example, I need to change meta title and descriptions on-the-fly.

    What filter do I need to use for that?

    If you can give me the list of available APIs (actions and filters) then it would be very nice.

    thank you.
