Example what happens

In the "body"-field (for example, editable via the CKEditor) you add an image. When you render the template following tag is displayed without AutoSchema:

<img alt="Your image caption" width="600" height="400" src="/site/assets/files/1/my-image.600x0.jpg" />

AutoSchema automatically generates the following code:

<figure itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject" style="width:600px;">
    <img alt="Your image caption" width="600" height="400" src="/site/assets/files/1/my-image.600x0.jpg"  itemprop="image" />
    <figcaption itemprop="caption">Your image caption</figcaption>
    <meta itemprop="width" content="600">
    <meta itemprop="height" content="400">

What is changed automatically?

  • <h1> to <h1 itemprop="headline">
  • <h2-6> to <h2-6 itemprop="alternativeHeadline">
  • <p> to <p itemprop="text">
  • <a> to <a itemprop="url">
  • <img> to <img itemprop="image" /> or complete HTML5 figure
