Google Structured Data Markup v1.2.4 released

Google Structured Data Markup v1.2.4 is now available. The sitelinks search functionality is now more flexible!

We've noticed that the default search component of Joomla! is not always the choice of many of you in terms of searching in your website. It's completely understandable and to accommodate this we upgraded the sitelinks search functionality to include the option of choosing your own custom search component with its special URL. Also, you can even choose Joomla's finder component in case you'd like to use the broadest search available Joomla has to offer!

Another really useful feature we've added in this release is the ability to add your own custom code in case you are versed with Google's Structured Data and want absolute control of your website's schema!


  • Adds support for the Joomla Finder to Sitelinks Searchbox snippet
  • Adds support for Custom URL to Sitelinks Searchbox snippet
  • Adds Custom Code field
  • Minor code fixes


The Custom Code feature is for users who are absolutely sure of what they are doing. We recommend that you use this feature in conjuction with Google Structured Data Markup Helper which guides you through the process of generating the markup you'd want. Don't forget to use only the JSON-LD code and NOT the Microdata.
