You can find the methods that generate the HTML tags in the Magento_Framework::view/page/config/renderer.php file.

A simple plugin to extend them that either uses regex or reimplement the logic of them to add the itemprop tags.

The relevant method for the title is renderTitle and the meta tag is within the protected method getMetadataTemplate ¹

Example Plugin, this is untested but a a rough guide


namespace Vendor\Module\Plugins;

use Magento\Framework\View\Page\Config\Renderer;

class RendererPlugin
    public function afterRenderTitle(Renderer $subject, $result)
        return preg_replace('/^<title>/', '<title itemprop="title">', $result);

    public function afterGetMetadataTemplate(Renderer $subject, $result)
        return preg_replace(
            '$1 itemprop="description"',

  • just change the function for description as below: - use afterRenderMetadata(Renderer $subject, $result) - instead of afterGetMetadataTemplate(Renderer $subject, $result) Nov 18, 2021 at 13:08

In order to have the Product schema.org markup somewhere other than the default location of the body tag, you need to first remove the default Magento output.

It is possible to "unset" the schema.org body attributes added by default by adding the following layout update for the default handle (i.e. in default.xml in your theme or a module):

    <attribute name="itemtype" value="" />
    <attribute name="itemscope" value="" />

Now you're able to place the itemtype and itemscope markup elsewhere as needed. Do this either in templates or read on for how to do it via adding attributes to containers in layout XML, as the title of your question seems to request.

Adding arbitrary attributes to existing or new containers is not possible by default. However, by extending Magento 2 it is possible to do it without altering _renderContainer (which is a really really bad idea and not necessary.)

I actually needed to do something similar to you and the OP of your linked question, and have posted a solution to that specific problem there: Magento 2 container custom attribute. Go check that out, it should get you the solution to the other part of your question.
