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

@Bosanci :
Go to "Search in Template"
Select the style,
type headinclude ,
Choose Yes in Title only
and click FIND

check whether the following code is available or not:

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

P.S : Sorry for the delay. Suffering from viral fever
