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

Same goes for me... but if you submit the tweet, it looks like this. One thing I did notice though is that my meta tags are missing some information...

There is no information in property="" That seems a little odd. Plus there is two more meta tags a little further down.

Did you install any other SEO plugins or make changes in header ?
It feels like Twitter , meebo and few others pulls the meta property that is available first on the page.

Try to *undo* any edits in template

I just discovered that changing the facebook_opengraph template makes my meta tags go from this....


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

To this...


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

I'm no expert but I am pretty sure it's not supposed to do that... Once I reverted my opengraph template my meta tags returned to normal...

I'm using 4.1.10

Should work fine since there is no change in template code.

Try it yourself or else revert to original.

I have installed vbSEO , so it provides built-in meta option.

Why are people working on meta tags, all the big search engines ignore them now, Google, Bing and Yahoo use algorithm's to work out page titles and threads.
