  • Within Webmaster Meta Settings, the Google Search Console Verification Code AND Bing Webmaster Verification Code are entered without quotes as is suggested by the fields placeholder text.

    However, when it renders on the frontend the codes omit the quotes ”

    For example:
    <meta name=google-site-verification content=SiU0F_BoHS5QJ-gcpbOs0v_uT8>
    <meta name=msvalidate.01 content=6EC93DCF3319ED47672A379501>

    Should be:
    <meta name=msvalidate.01 content=”6EC93DCF3319ED47672A379501″>

    This is not a problem for Google verification. However, Bing won’t verify. Not a big deal, simply uploaded the xml they provide.

    Thank you!

    Hi Manny,

    TSF renders the attributes with quotes. But, Bing should be able to parse them without, as it’s still valid HTML.

    In any case, the removal of the quotes is a side-effect of an HTML minification plugin. We have no control over the output after it passes through its minification buffer. So, see if you can tweak the minification settings so to reintroduce the quotes, and it’s fixed!

    Cheers 🙂

    You are correct on both fronts @cybr

    Bing should be able to parse them as valid html, but then again we are taking about Microsoft.

    The HTML magnification benefit is worth this minor inconvenience so I will just leave verification to the XML until bing gets their act together.

    I apologize for assuming it was an issue with your plugin. Which is fantastic by the way. Switching from yoast and google xml plugins to just yours. Well done sir!
