    I’m noticing that I have come across some errors showing up in Google’s webmaster tools for structured data. For instance, images. The image container used by the layout builder uses the itemprop of “ImageObject”. Google Webmaster Tools gives the following error message:

    “The property ImageObject is not recognized by Google for an object of type WebPage.”

    There is a simple fix… Change this in the “avia-image-container” div…
    itemprop=”ImageObject” itemscope=”itemscope” itemtype=””

    …to simply this. The added declarations aren’t used anymore by Google. The moment I changed it to proper schema markup, it gave no errors.
    itemscope itemtype=””

    Might be a good time to devote an update of the theme entirely to SEO using the Webmaster Tools as a guide for testing. This theme already has a good rep for being highly customizeable…let’s add out of the box SEO ready. I personally have customized things in such a way where all of the basics needed for SEO can be adjusted per page without the need of another plugin…and I have been working on custom layout builder elements that help as well. If any of the devs would like some notes on what I’ve done, they can email me at the address in the private content area. There really are some super simple updates that could be done to the theme to help promote better SEO habits out the box…at least for the most basic needs. If someone really does want more granular control they can either use a plugin or hire someone.


    Hey Kahil,

    Thank you for your input.

    I forwarded your thread to Kriese.

    Best regards,


    Hey Victoria,
    Is there any update on this? I have the same error in my Schema markup but since it´s coming from the gallery module I cannot simply change the code.
    Thank you,


    There hasn’t been an update and likely won’t be. That said…I have been creating custom elements for the layout builder. I will look in to modifying some of the stock elements to allow advanced scheme control.

    I’ll let you know.



    Thanks for reporting this.

    I added this issue to our dev repo and we will have a look into it asap.

    Best regards,



    I replaced the value “itemprop” for images with ‘image’.
    Google’s webmaster tools for structured data does not show any errors after that.

    Not sure if it will come into the next update but it is in the pull requests.

    Best regards,
