Hi

About 2 weeks ago, Schema.org underwent some online attack which resulted in them changing the way they serve the @context file. This change breaks many frameworks that attempt to read the context file in dynamically.

Two workarounds that I know of are:

  1.  Replace the short context reference of “@context”:”https://schema.org”  with “@context”:“https://schema.org/docs/jsonldcontext.jsonld”
  2.  Take a local copy of https://schema.org/docs/jsonldcontext.jsonld and overwrite things locally

I hope that helps people to understand why anything using JSON-LD with the Schema.org context has recently stopped working.

Best regards

Alasdair
