    Hi

    i have Genesis 2 with Yoast Plugin

    also i installed custom theme Prestige (zigzagpress)

    But how do i get the schema markup that is supposed to give the rich snippets?

    i can not find settings anywhere for this… would i still have to create custom php files for this??

    cheers Carlo

    Hi,
    The simple answer is that you need the Genesis 2 compatible version of Prestige. Otherwise, HTML5 and Schema markup will not be turned on – this is so that the theme will be backward compatible. I can’t see your site, so I can’t tell which version of the theme you have.

    Zigzagpress is gradually making all their themes Genesis 2 compatible. I see that they do have a Genesis 2 version of Prestige. Do you have it? If you’re not sure, check your downloads or ask Zigzagpress.

    Ciao,
    Dave

    Hi David

    I have Genesis 2 and Prestige 1.6.1

    i can not find the schema markup when creating a post or page… i thought it would be easier with these versions of Genesis and child themes to get the schema markup by just selecting it…

    Unfortunately it is not there i guess

    The only stuff i find is the social stof like the open graph , twitter and google + authorship but that is handled by yoast plugin

    Hi,
    I just looked at the theme demo, and it looks like you may have the latest version. The demo does have schema markup in it, so it’s definitely viable.

    By the way, you won’t see anything in your page editor that refers to schema, this is automatically generated for you. View Source on your site, and do a find on “itemtype”. If you see those, schema is working.

    If you want to alter what’s being written in the schema, that’s another story. :-)

    Ciao, Dave
