  • in reply to: Table & SideBar Schema Errors – Please Check #440573

    Hi Josue,

    Disabling the markup is not a solution, I need something similar to the fix that Kriesi did for the same issue on the Navigation element. Do you know what did he do to fix that same error?

    Thank you,
    George

    in reply to: Table & SideBar Schema Errors – Please Check #439583

    Hi Josue!

    Is there a quick fix for it? At least for the table element for now since I use it in a lot of pages?

    Thank you,

    in reply to: Bootstrap or Foundation? (Enfold Compatibility) #419870

    Thank you Ismael!

    I have designed the complete plugin but I’m having someone else doing the code. He asked me about what framework I want to use and I have read a few posts here that Bootstrap could have conflicts with Enfold so that’s why I’m asking you guys to make sure.

    I will be using complex Google maps along with data lists using Bootstrap grid and customized Bootstrap sliders so I would appreciate it if Kriesi chimes in with his opinion on any possible conflicts that Bootstrap might have with Enfold.

    Thanks again!
    George

    in reply to: Bootstrap or Foundation? (Enfold Compatibility) #418857

    Anyone knows the answer to this simple question? I really need to pick the plugin’s framework and the development is on hold waiting for your answer so the plugin won’t have any conflicts with the theme.

    Thank you,
    George

    in reply to: Masonry Gallery – Structured Data Bug #380453

    Hi Elliott!

    Brilliant! As you suggested I replaced ‘image_url’ with ‘image_link’ on line 576 in the masonry_entries.php file and then created a new case for ‘image_link’ on the helper-markup.php file that returns ‘itemprop’ = ‘significantLink’ and now both properties for images without a link to a page and for images with a link to a page return the correct markup without producing errors.

    Shouldn’t this fix be added as a permanent fix to the upcoming theme’s update since it also solves the errors on the demo pages?

    Thank you very much for your help… You are brilliant!

    Best regards,
    George

    in reply to: Masonry Gallery – Structured Data Bug #379187

    Hi Elliott,

    Changing line 108 in the helper-markup.php file is the easy shortcut that fixes this particular error on the Masonry Gallery element when page links are used instead of the lightbox. BUT it creates errors on all other elements (sliders, image gallery, etc) that use the “imageobject” markup when the attached images DON’T include a link to a page.

    The problem with the Masonry Gallery is that it does not take into consideration images having links to a page that display the page url link instead of the image url and by default attaches the property “contentUrl” to the page url which should be attached only to an image url. The code needs to be changed so “contenturl” property is correctly attached to an image url BUT “significantLink” or “url” should be attached to images that include page links. By default, Images not attached to a page display the image url in which case the “contenturl” property is correctlu applied, while images that are attached to a page display the title or alt url in which case the “contenturl” property produces errors.

    That is why I suggested earlier that a conditional code is needed to be added so it will apply the correct property on images without a link to a page and to images with a link to a page.

    Thank you,
    George

    in reply to: Masonry Gallery – Structured Data Bug #378536

    Hi Elliott,

    Thank you for looking into this! I added the code below at the end of the functions.php that removes the “hentry” class if it’s a page and it fixed the first error “missing updated & author”.

     function ga_remove_hentry( $classes ) {
        if ( is_page() ) {
            $classes = array_diff( $classes, array( 'hentry' ) );
        }
        return $classes;
    }
    add_filter( 'post_class','ga_remove_hentry' );

    I still need a fix for the second issue reporting that “contenturl” is not part of the “schema.org/webpage” markup. I think that the proper way to fix this is by having a conditional code in functions.php file to replace the “contenturl” markup that comes from “schema.or/imageobject” with “significantLink” or even just a “URL” markup ONLY for images that link to a page, but I don’t know how to code this.

    Thank you,
    George

    in reply to: Customizing Footer Question #371887

    Hey Ismael,

    I didn’t think of using a conditional tag on the footer.php. Thank you very much for the suggestion. It works as I wanted.

    in reply to: How to add an H1 title tag on homepage & other static pages? #360206

    Hi Elliott,

    Thank you for the reply! As I mentioned above, I do use a page to display as the frontpage and I have selected to Display the title only on the Title bar as you also suggested but that does work when Transparent Header is selected. It works with the normal header but NOT with the transparent.

    Using a special heading element or a code block is also not an option as this places the heading either above or below the slider and not on top of the slider…. unless custom css is used in which case it overlaps with the sliders title and caption.

    There should be a code that places the page’s title in an h1 tag that search engines see above everything else on the content even though a transparent header is used and that heading doesn’t actual show on the page.

    Thank you,
    George

    Hi Ismael,

    This code worked. It removed the themes map api as I needed,

    Thank you!
    George

    Hey Ismael,

    Thanks for the code but it doesn’t work. The Google maps element is still there and works as normal on the back end. It seems that the code you suggested all it does is to disable the map from appearing on the front end.

    Is there a code that I can put on the child theme that will completely disable the theme’s Google map element and remove it from the back end?

    Thank you,
    George

    in reply to: Yoast SEO and special heading #349671

    Hi Kriesi,

    Thanks for the reply! You are correct… My bad. I just checked on the Google Structured Data Testing Tool and it actually sees the titles created with the Special Heading element. To my surprise now it no longer sees the headings (correctly marked with itemprop=headline”) within the Accordion Slider element when previously they would appear in the Structured Testing Tool… but that’s another issue that has nothing to do with the Special Heading element.

    I also did some research this morning and I found out that with the recent SE updates Webmaster Tools now only counts keywords within the content in a paragraph, not those found in headings which explains the drop in the number of keywords that I now see in GWT.

    in reply to: Yoast SEO and special heading #349207

    Hi Kriesi,

    By looking the site’s keywords that Google sees at the Google webmasters tools I can clearly see that Google does not also see the keywords within the theme’s special headings. Last time I checked there for a specific keyword 2-3 months ago I could see it 6 times, the same times as I could also see it at the Yoast’s plugin. Now both Yoast and Google webmasters see it only 2 times… I have that keyword in 4 of my special headings and 2 times within a text block in the content. So I guess both Google and Yoast only see the 2 in the content.

    Do you have an estimated date when all those SEO issues will be completed in the upcoming 3.0.3 version?

    Thank you,
    George

    Hi Kriesi,

    I agree with you 100% that during the past few months both Enfold and the Yoast plugin have had changes in the code that have caused all these issues.

    As it is today though disabling some of the Yoast plugin’s features because of it so other plugins such as WPML & Woocommerce work, I think that it is a huge disservice to many of the 40,000 clients who use Enfold without WPML and woocommerce.

    I really, really like Enfold and how easy it is to create a beautiful site with this theme, but as I said it doesn’t help me rank the site if I cannot use Yoast’s SEO plugin’s main feature (keyword analysis) in pages built with ALB.

    Enfold is one of the best selling WP themes so please consider working with the Yoast team to solve these issues prior to adding any new features in the upcoming updates. What can we do with the new features when old ones break and are taken away in favor of having other feature work?

    Thank you for your attention on this issue. Looking forward to hearing back that you found a solution to make Enfold fully compatible with the most widely used SEO plugin.

    Best,
    George

    Hi Kriesi,

    Thank you for the reply! I can see that the warning was manually added to the wpseo-mod.js file and I understand why you did this.

    The problem that I have is that up until the Enfold version 2.8.1 the theme and Yoast SEO plugin were working perfectly fine together. The plugin could in fact see all keywords within a page built with the advanced layout builder. The problems started with the theme’s v2.9 update and got really bad on this latest 3.0.2 update.

    By looking at certain keyword results performance in google, I can tell you with certainty that the front end also has a big issue with the keywords on pages built with the ALB. As I mention above, my site was top 3 on google for it’s main keywords for over 8 years and lasted up until the theme’s v2.8.1. It started slipping to the bottom of the first page after the 2.9 update and right after the 3.0.2 update it dropped to the 3rd and 4th page.

    What’s the point of using the Yoast plugin if we cannot use it’s extremely valuable page analysis for the selected keywords on content built with ALB and what’s the point of using Enfold to built a very nice looking site when the site cannot easily be found on google?

    Is there a way that I can go back on using the 2.8.1 version of Enfold when everything was working right without also having to downgrade the 4.0 version of WP? This latest 3.0.2 version of the theme has made it a liability for my business.

    Thank you,
    George

    Thank you Josue, Unfortunately that modification breaks the table headings when is added. Everything is fixed when the modification is removed.

    in reply to: v3.0 – Tables NO longer responsive on iPad #335895

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you very much! It now works great on iPad portrait screen. I made a small change on the code, changed media screen to 1024 size and it now also works on iPad’s landscape screen the same way it used to work before the update to v3.0.

    Thank you again,

    in reply to: Google Maps Element #334395

    Hey Arvish,

    Thank you for the reply. Please, don’t get me wrong… the theme and the support here is 10 out of 5 stars. I’m extremely pleased with both.

    In this case, I was only using the Map element to display a single address with a single infoWindow in several pages on my site and it was working great for my needs. A few days ago I needed to put a Map element in one of the pages that includes several location addresses with several infoWindows. That is when after trying some solutions supplied by Ismael and doing some research on the issue I found out that having several locations with several infoWindows on the Map is not working because it is not coded according to the Google’s best practices suggestions.

    To make it work according to best practices, all is needed is to move the infowindow creation code outside the marker creation function. This is not a feature request, just a suggestion on how to make the element work according to best practices. A feature request would be something like to include an SEO friendly nfoWindow list under the Map element. :)

    Thanks again,
    George

    in reply to: Google Maps Element #333454

    Hey Arvish,

    If you take the time to read this thread from the beginning you might realize that the “customization” that I wanted was just to replace the ‘click’ with ‘mouseover’ code.

    However after some reading and research on the Google maps implementation, it turns out that this simple “customization doesn’t work because the map element is NOT coded according to the Google best practice suggestion guidelines as it can be seen at the Google Maps – Developers section here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/infowindows#add

    Best practices: For the best user experience, only one info window should be open on the map at any one time. Multiple info windows make the map appear cluttered. If you only need one info window at a time, you can create just one InfoWindow object and open it at different locations or markers upon map events, such as user clicks. If you do need more than one info window, you can display multiple InfoWindow objects at the same time.

    Suggesting that I hire an outside coder to fix the map element so it is coded according to Google’s best practices is not a customization but a fix for the element that was not properly coded.

    I hope that the above link makes it clear that this is no longer a help for customization request but a request to code the element based on best practices.

    Best regards,
    George

    Hey Courtney,

    If you use the Yoast SEO plugin you can easy redirect the images to the images to the post url under the Advanced tab while editing the image or you can add the post’s url in the image’s url box directly on the WordPress Media Library while editing the image. Hope that helps.

    in reply to: Google Maps Element #331111

    Hi Ismael,

    Thank you again! This last code works fine if you only have 2-3 markers on the map. Currently having 20 markers with plans to add at least 50 more, it makes it the worst solution as it opens many infoWindows on hove which cover the markers and it’s impossible to click on them to close the open infoWindows.

    Reading the Google suggestions and best practice on infoWindows here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/infowindows#add as well as seeing several other solutions on github, only one infoWindow shall be open at any given time when having multiple markers. This is achieved by creating the infoWindow before creating the marker. in other words the

    var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
          content: info
      });

    code must be outside and before the code that creates the marker that the infoWindow will open upon an event as it is shown on the Google suggestions and on several other sites. Here’s the simplest example: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1875596/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out)(Purchase code hidden if logged out)

    I tried moving it but since it is coded a bit different on the theme and I’m really bad coding java, I’m not sure where to move that infoWindow code so I break the element.

    By looking at the Google example and the other site’s code example above, do you have any suggestions on what to replace on the theme’s code to make it work by opening just one infoWindow at a time?

    Thank you very much for your help!
    George

    Hey Courtney,

    You are probably in the Grid view on the Media Library. Under the Media Library heading there are 2 icons, the one to the left is the List icon and the one to the right is the Grid icon. click the one to the left to see the images on a List. Then you’ll see the “Uploaded to” heading.

    Go to Media Library and under the “Uploaded to” heading attach all unattached images to the pages or posts you want… It works for me :)

    in reply to: Google Maps Element #330304

    Thank you very much for the code. It works as it should!

    The only problem I have with this code now is that as soon as I move the mouse from the marker the tooltip closes right away before it allows to click on the links inside the tooltip, so basically this solution makes the tooltip unusable if there are links in it. Sorry, my bad I didn’t think about this.

    Is there an option for the tooltip on a marker to stay open until another marker (not just moving the mouse away) is hovered or clicked to allow time to click on the tooltip’s links? Although I’ve seen this done, especially on sites with home listings on a map, I realize that this option requires a lot of additional code. So I guess the easiest option would be for to use the “click” option to open a tooltip on a marker and then when another marker is clicked and the new tooltip opens the previous one closes.

    So far I use the code below which allows for the tooltip to open on click and then when the map is clicked it closes all open tooltips.

    google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
    				    infowindow.open(map,marker);
    				});
    				
    				google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'click', function() {
    				    infowindow.close(map,marker);
    				});

    What code can I use instead so when a new marker is clicked and a new tooltip opens the previous tooltip closes?

    Thank you so much for your help,
    George

    in reply to: Google Maps Element #329292

    Hi Ismael,

    Thank you! On shortcode.js – line 616, I replaced ‘click’ with ‘mouseover’ and the tooltip now opens on hover as I wanted.

    However now, when I hover to another marker a new tooltip opens and the tooltip on the previous marker remains open which is fine on a map with just a couple markers. On a map with a bunch of markers however it makes it impossible to look at the info of all markers when all those tooltips remain open.

    What is the code that I can add to have the previous tooltip automatically close once I hover to a another marker? I’m pretty bad when it comes to java.

    Thank you for your help,
    George
