Could itemid be used interchangeably with schema.org/url to get Event Rich Snippets? linclark 9/13/12 8:02 AM
Hi,

I'm leading the microdata integration in Drupal and have run into an issue.

When people are posting event pages, they usually don't have a field that points back to the same page. Google Rich Snippets are only shown if you have a value for "url" on the item. 

However, the microdata module does include the URL as the itemid of the Event item. It's often the case that itemid has the same meaning as Schema.org's url, which has been discussed in the pubic-vocabs mailing list extensively.

Would it be possible for Rich Snippets to fallback to the itemid of the Event if there is no url present?

Cheers,
