rich snippets fields (Article)

  • In the description field is only possible option %excerpt%.
    I need to have a field analog description of the post.
    You must automatically add a description of the first 160 characters or written by hand.
    Priority: manual description, and if there is no manual, then use 160 characters from the post.
    It worked great for yoast seo.

    Thank you for the follow up.

    The error on the structured data testing tool suggests that you are using very long titles for your posts that might affect the rankings on your content. I would suggest that you truncate the titles to the recommended range of 0-110.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.


    Can the plugin do this automatically?
    Similar to the description with a limit of 160 characters.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Yes, you can add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file:

     * Filter to Short-circuit Schema if a 3rd party is interested in generating their own data.
     * Replace $schmea_type with schema name like article, review, etc.
     * @param array $entity Snippet Data
     * @return array
    add_filter( "rank_math/snippet/rich_snippet_article_type", function( $entity ) {
            $char_count 	= 110; // number of characters
    	$entity['headline'] = mb_strimwidth( $entity['headline'], 0, $char_count, '');
    	return $entity;

    I hope this info helps.

    Hi Gemuz,

    Unfortunately, we do not truncate your meta title. Sorry.

    I will ask the dev. team and see if there is a filter to attain that.

    I will get back to you.

    The script does not work. Waiting for a decision.


    Please check here:

    You can use this filter and wp_trim_words to change trim the title.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    wp_trim_words() – this is the number of words

    For what reason does the code above not work?

    Can change the code in the plugin to trim the title? In most topics I saw that they themselves forcibly cut the title. editing

    I changed the code myself.
    It would be nice to see similar code in the next update of the plugin.

    Hi Gemuz,

    Thanks and I am glad you were able to fix the issue.

    We will see about offering it in the plugin itself but I am not sure how helpful that would be the majority of the users. We will definitely consider it.

    Thank you.
