Website freely created in Google Sites is not allowing me to add microdata in it. In HTML editor view, I edited and added itemscope, itemtype and itemprop. But once I saved and opened again the HTML editor, those disappeared. Why isn’t Google Sites editor allowing me to add micro data?

  • As it stands, your question should be directed to Google as a feature request. If you think there is a way to add microdata, but you can't find out how to do it, you should rephrase your question accordingly. Commented Nov 28, 2013 at 10:49

Google Caja

The HTML you're adding is sanitized by the Google Caja Compiler. It will check the embedded code for malicious code, and remove the parts that don't fit.

  • @rajaashok To be honest, I don't even know what microdata is. But since it belongs to HTML5, it will probably be sanitized by the Caja compiler, unless it's being released as safe.
