Ya could not find any meta with the name item. There is a missing item in the breadcrumb. I try to find out the solution on google but couldn’t find the proper solution for it. Since I’m using a free WordPress theme, I couldn’t get any support from the theme owner as well. I search in google developers and find out the syntax to add the item in the breadcrumb and it should be content in all positions except the last one.

//find the next postion of ” after :
$lastPos = strpos($matches[1], “\””, $firstPos);

//get the string from postion h to before ”
$mainItem = substr($matches[1], $firstPos-5, ($lastPos-$firstPos+5));

$item = sprintf( ‘%s(Bracket Open)span itemprop=”name”(Bracket Close)%s(Bracket Open)/span(Bracket Close)%s(Bracket Open)meta itemprop=”item” content=”%s” /(Bracket Close)’, $matches[1], $matches[2], $matches[3], $mainItem );
$item = sprintf( ‘(Bracket Open)span itemprop=”name”(Bracket Close)%s(Bracket Open)/span(Bracket Close)’, $item );

/*$item = ( !empty( $matches )) ? sprintf( ‘%s(Bracket Open)span itemprop=”name”(Bracket Close)%s(Bracket Open)/span(Bracket Close)%s’, $matches[1], $matches[2], $matches[3] ) : sprintf( ‘(Bracket Open)span itemprop=”name”(Bracket Close)%s(Bracket Open)/span(Bracket Close)’, $item );
