Has the Google Rich Results Test Changed?
4
Up until recently when I tested my json ld in Rich Results Test I was seeing "Page is eligible for rich results".  Now when I test the exact same code I see "1 valid item detected" when there is two. Breadcrumbs followed by Recipes.  I haven't added the code to this post because it hasn't changed at all since the first times it was eligible to now and it is very long.  Has Google changed the Rich Results Test format since September when I tested quite thoroughly and always with success?

Could you share the Rich Result Test with us. There is a share button that provides a url you can post here.

Hi guys, sorry I haven't gotten back to you but I was busy changing all the work I did. 

Everything seems to be passing now but I cannot nest breadcrumbs with articles or recipes so I had to eliminate them and do each one separately. 

The recipe code doesn't work either so I had to use a different approach. 

Here is the code I tried for my recipes that didn't work and the code I settled for, not ideal but I want it pass to help in seo.

Code that didn't pass:
