  • Hi, wonderful plugin!

    Is posible to deactivate rich snippets? I’m trying to apply ratings to pages that are neither products, places, recipes, blogs. Instead, they are something more similar to companies, or groups. I was thinking that maybe have a rich snippets that is not correct can be harmful for SEO.

      It’s not possible with a setting, we’ve to insert a little function in your child theme!

      Is it ok for you?

      • Thank you for your answer!

        We have a customised theme, so no child. So i think that I just should insert the function in the function.php file?

          • Yes, true but the theme (not programmed by me) is a custom teme, so don’t know who will update it and when. Anyway, if I have to apply only some functions without a child theme, I use Code Snippets..
