I’m attempting to add JSON-LD structured data on articles. It’s a bit of a chore to get the right data that Google is looking for and, apparently, won’t display the structured data if invalid. I’ve fixed all the issues—even adding in new routines to find image size. Will see if this works or not.

Oops. While my last time change looks good, it also broke a few things. Namely, the RSS feed was using the wrong times. I figured this out while adding some additional OpenGraph tags, one of which was published time. While troubleshooting the correct format (ISO 8601), I realized that two things were wrong. First, I had the arguments wrong on the
nice_date() routine. Second, I overwrote the $month variable, which starts as a number, with the name. All fixed now, plus articles have more data now in Facebook.

I noticed that when sharing images, such as those from Flickr, I didn’t always want to use that image as a top float. They are usually larger images that don’t look well on the featured articles page. I can still add the image tag for sharing, but when previewed there isn’t an image. To fix that, I added two new
meta tags. You can use
meta-preview-image-alt to display an image on the featured site, but not within the article view. I also fixed an issue where I didn’t allow hyphens in the
meta tag itself.
