Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Re-usable Code Translations  

This simple trick allows you to change Thread's Meta tag from ForumHome Meta details to thread description.


Before :



After :


Instruction :

Edit facebook_opengraph in the template

Replace :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's all.

Now when you share in facebook, you will see the Thread desc as the meta tag.


Disclaimer :
  • I tried changing many codes in Template and finally succeeded. So I am not responsible if there is any problem.
  • Length of Meta Keyword/description may be greater than 200 words.

P.S :
Facebook caches the meta title and desc. when you try to share any link. In that case, you won't see any new meta details. So add ?v=1 or &p=19 [something like that]
eg. http://collegers.net/showthread.php?...enter-HOAX?v=1

Otherwise check the meta details using
http://www.seocentro.com/tools/searc...-analyzer.html

**If you are using vbSEO , this Mod is not necessary

Prior to installing this when I posted an article to Facebook only my header and my footer appeared as image options on FB.

The information in the article was not an option, as again only my site info was appearing on FB.

After installing this ALL images on the article page where given as an option to choose from, not just the header and footer.

About 90% of my sites images are hosted at Photobucket - and easily link to FB using this mod.

I love it. Works great for me!

Thanks again!

@CouponWC :
I checked the Meta tag using seocentro .
See the result.

which means Meta tag description has been included from the Thread.

If there is any custom modification , check them.
Also check the URL structure.
