Hi Guys, hope you all are doing great? Please I will appreciate if someone can help me out with this.

I recently installed the WP Product Review Lite and used it to publish a post but when I submitted it to search console it came up with a warning, which I will include the image below.

I did everything the way I was supposed to when using the review template but I can see from the warning that some information are missing but unfortunately I can't get these information from the product. e.g, location, phone number, price validity( which doesnt apply since the product is free) etc.

Though it says these infos are optional, so I woud like to know if it is safe to just ignore them?

And if I do will it affect my ranking, as I intend to use this template for every other review post?

Or is there a way to fix this to stop receiving such messages?

And I noticed that once I use the review template the post no longer shows up on my blogroll and I dont know if it is meant to be that way?

Will appreciate all your help in solving this problem.

Thanks in anticipation.

Cheers.

Scott got you. If you are reviewing based on a template, then populating the information is necessary or the review template will have empty fields.

I did provide all the information present about the product. Most of the things listed are not available for the product.
That is why I don't know how to fix this, but will try what Scott said and see what happens.

Thanks for your response. I appreciate it.

Hello,
I don't see the image you said you were going to include but I believe I know the answer.

Edit your post (using the classic, not block editor). Scroll down to the Product Review Extra Settings section and click on Product to bring up a menu. Select Individual Product from the list (see attached image) and then don't forget to hit update to save your changes. Resubmit your page for indexing and wait.

Hi Scott, do you have any idea if these reviews don't show up on our blog roll?
If so, does that mean I have to add them on menus?

The review ends up on the post. The post ends up on the blog roll. The only other place the review ratings might show is in the google search results snippet (rich snippets).

That is what I dont understand, ot doesnt show up in my blogroll, more like a page. I can only view it if I go to my dashboard and click on reviews.
Which means there must be something wrong and I dont understand what.
Thanks for your response though, appreciate it.

You have a post type called reviews? It's actually a menu in your back end?

Hi Mac, I don't know if this is a question or a statement, but yes I have the reviews section at my back end, and when I use it as a template for reviews then the post doesn't show up on my blogroll.
My question is if it is supposed to be that way?

So it looks like your theme or plugin is set to create a new post type called reviews. Because it's a different post type, they won't show on the blog roll.

My guess is that you have this turned on:
Enable review post type

What I don't know is if turning it off will convert existing posts back to normal or only new ones.

Yes Mac, the WP Lite plugin provides that option but I didnt know it will make the reviews not show on the blogroll.
I have done everything to stop receievingthese warnings from google but every review I create using this plugin brings this warning back for each product.
So I am thinking of deactivating the plugin but faced with another problem on how to transfer the review back to my normal blogroll before deactivating the plugin.

There are plugins out there to change post and page types. I don't know a name off-hand but they do exist. The other option is to simply copy from the old and paste into a new post but I'm not sure if you can move comments, etc.
