Bug Fix For Sama Author Review Plugin For WordPress

Sama Author Review Plugin For WordPress Logo

I’ve used this plugin for around two months now. I just recently decided to audit schema.org data vocabulary markup to make sure everything was passing correct syntax. Well, it was not. The itemprops for reviewBody was completely missing!  So I dug into the code and found the file that dealt with schema markup and compared the definition at https://schema.org/Review and made the changes. The file to fix will be listed at the bottom of this article for Sama Author Review Plugin For WordPress.
