Google Author Support in Synapse

I’m wondering if there is planned support for Google Author in future versions of Synapse? 

I’m running WP 3.8 and the latest Yoast plugin and I’m seeing an error in Google Webmaster Tools that says:

Missing: author
Missing: updated

I’m not sure where I forgot to add in that information. Any ideas how I add that to each post/page or am I incorrect on this?

Are you referring to the Yoast SEO plugin? As far as I know, those elements should be added by the plugin. If you can point me to any documentation the plugin offers in light of specific theme tag compatibility, I’ll be glad to offer suggestions.

When I installed the plugin locally, I was able to see the article:published_time and article:modified_time meta tags (among others) but no author tag was rendered - even after updating my profile settings.
