Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Pinterest validator AUTHORS ERROR

  • Resolved sarahimirelesr


    I have been trying to get Rich pins to work on my recipes website, when I do the validation of the page I get the “Congratulations! Your rich pins are approved and on Pinterest.” message but then no APPLY BUTTON appears anywhere.
    BUT if I scroll down the only error seems to be a field called “Authors” which I haven’t been able to identify anywhere on my plugins and that appears like this: “- -“.

    I already configured the social tab on YOAST for Facebook profile and I am using Tasty recipes for the creation of the recipes. Don’t know what else could it be.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    The apply button only appears if your site has not been approved. The validation returns an approved message which means your site can use rich pins.

    Pinterest uses the same meta tag for author that Facebook uses but the two sites expect different data in the same tag. Unfortunately, this means that Pinterest will not see an author in the validation but it does not impact your ability to use rich pins.
