How to add Structured Data to Gridbox

Updated 08 Dec, 2020

Google Structured Data integrates perfectly with the Gridbox component and enables you to add Structured Data and specifically the Article Content Type to Gridbox pages.

Enable Integration

As with all of the integrations, you need to navigate to Components > Google Structured Data > Configuration and click the Integrations Tab where all the Integrations are listed.


Find the "Gridbox" Integration in the list and make sure that it is enabled with the green checkmark indicator as shown in the screenshot below.

Add Article Structured Data to Gridbox Pages

Let's see how you can add the Article Content Type to Gridbox pages. From the Components menu, choose Google Structured Data, nagivate to the Items section and click on the New button to create a new Structured Data Item.


On the next page, you will see the following 3 options where you will need to select the Article Content Type and the Gridbox Integration as shown in the screenshot below.


Click Save to return to the same page. Once the item is saved 2 new sections appearing.

  • Article: This section helps you map the content type properties with Page options, Meta Properties, Site info and more.
  • Publishing Rules: This is where you can select the pages where the structured data is going to be generated to.

To learn more details on how you can use these sections visit the How to Add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Publishing Rules

In case, you don't want to generate the Article Content Type to all pages, you can use the available Publishing Rules to target specific pages. The Gridbox Integration implements the following publishing rules:

Name Description
Article Target specific Gridbox items only.
Category Target all Articles assigned to specific Gridbox categories.

To learn more about the Publishing Rules section visit the How to add Structured Data to Pages documentation page.

Remember, in case you don't enable any publishing rules, the structured data will be generated on all Gridbox pages.

The Structured Data is generated only in the Gridbox Page View where a single Page is displayed. The Category or List views are not currently supported.
