    Hi all,

    Does anyone know why we are getting the wrong events listed under our event listings in google search?

    Any help deeply appreciated

    Many thanks

    Hi All,

    I worked out is it due to the list view widget being enabled in the side bar and it is pulling the data from there i belive.

    Something to investigate further.

    Thank you

    Howdy Tristan,

    You nailed it with the List Widget. Personally I am not a fan of having a widget display JSON+LD. For some reason some of our users requested it and we eventually built it.

    I would love to see that be a toggle. It is possible to disable JSON+LD across the board using this snippet:

    Are you interested in disabling that everywhere, or just on the widget itself?

    Cheers!

    Hi Brook,

    Thank you for confirming my findings on this issue.

    I would just prefere to disable it on the widget tbh. Having the actual single event information displaying correctly in Google search I see as a plus.

    I will have a look at the widget code and modify to suit.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Matthew and Tristan,

    I┬áhad talked with a few others about adding this toggle a couple months back. Until this minute I did not realize we had already gone ahead and added it! If you go to your Appearance > Widgets, find the widget in question, you should notice a toggle for “Generate JSON-LD data”. Uncheck that box, hit Save, and it should disappear.

    Did that do what you’re after?

    Thanks for adding this idea to UserVoice Matthew! I would have pointed you there if I hadn’t noticed this was already a feature.

    Cheers!
