Mark up your movies with structured data so users can explore movies through Google Search. You can provide details about the movies, such as the title of the movie, director of the movie, an image of the movie and more.
How to markup Joomla Pages with the Movie Schema
From the main menu choose Components -> Google Structured Data. Click on Items from the left sidebar and then on the New button to create a new Structured Data Item.
On the next page, you will need to prepare the Structured Data Item. Enter a Title (it can be anything) and select the Movie Content Type from the respective dropdown.
Next, click to save the Structured Data Item. Once the page reloads, a new section called Movie appears below where you can map each property with page data.
To read more details on how the mapping works, visit the respective section in the How to Add Structured Data to Pages guide.
