I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES
My site's URL (web address) is:sharepress.org
Description (including timeline of any changes made):
I'm operating a multi author blog. Today i created a Google+Page for my site  and also linked between Google+ Pages and the website. I'm also using the Google+ rel="author" markup on the blog posts for authors.

The issues is that If you try to use both rel=author and rel=publisher markups at the same time in a webpage, you will get the error: Error: Both rel=publisher and rel=author are present on the page, we only verify rel=author link for this case. ( when tried to verify using Rich Snippets Testing Tool )

So is there any work around for this, so that both the markeup's get accepted?

Is there any problem using both?
