  • What if you exclude <meta property="author" typeof="Person"/> and change the next line to <meta property="author" content="Machtelt Garrels">? Commented Feb 14, 2020 at 20:28
  • I am very new with schema.org..., I thought first should declared Person and later name the person....

  • Try this: replace both of those lines with <meta property="author" typeof="Person" content="Machtelt Garrels"/>. That should cover it. Let me know if it works for you. Commented Feb 14, 2020 at 23:59
  • This seems to work: <span property="author" typeof="Person"> <p><strong>Author:</strong><span property="name" content="Machtelt Garrels">Machtelt Garrels</span></p> </span> Commented Feb 17, 2020 at 3:33

 <span hidden="">–</span>
 <span class="subtitle">A Hands on Guide</span>
<p property="author" typeof="Person">
<span property="name">Machtelt Garrels</span>
