FAQ

How do I configure the Open Graph plugin?

There is nothing to configure and there is no admin page. By default, it will use standard WordPress data which can populate the Open Graph.

I installed OG and … nothing happens!

Please be patient, sometimes you need more a day to see results. The reason for this is cache on Facebook. But check your plugins too and if you use caching plugins, try to do „flush cache“ on your site.

You can force FB to refresh OpenGraph data by using this page https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/. Just go to Sharing Debugger, enter your URL and hit the button „Scrap Again“.

What is OpenGraph?

The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. Most notably, this allows for these pages to be used with Facebook’s Like Button and Graph API.

The Open Graph plugin inserts the Open Graph metadata into the page head section and provides filters for other plugins and themes to override this data, or to provide additional Open Graph data.

What plugin add for all types of content?

  • og:locale – site locale
  • og:site_name – blog title
  • og:title – post/page/archive/tag/… title
  • og:url – the post/page permalink
  • og:type – „article“ for single content and „website“ for all others
  • og:description – site description
  • og:site_name – site name

What plugin add for single content?

All above and more:

  • og:image: From a specific custom field of the post/page, or if not set from the post/page featured/thumbnail image, or if it doesn’t exist from the first image in the post content, or if it doesn’t exist from the first image on the post media gallery, or if it doesn’t exist from the default image defined in the options menu. The same image chosen here will be used and enclosure/media:content on the RSS feed.
  • og:video – add links to YouTube movies.
  • article:author – author of post link
  • article:published_time – date of first article publication
  • article:modified_time – date of last article modification
  • article:tag – tags used in post
  • twitter:card – summary
  • twitter:title – the same line og:title
  • twitter:description – the same like og:description
  • twitter:image – the same like og:image
  • twitter:player – the same like og:video
  • og:see_also – Pinterest related if you use the supported „related posts“ plugin

What plugin add for a single WooCommerce product?

All above and more:

  • og:price:amount – price amount
  • og:price:currency – price currency
  • og:availability – stock status

How plugin get video data?

Plugin grabs data from content and if contains YouTube URL, then the plugin tries to get a movie thumbnail and use it in og:image.

If the post contains YouTube or Vimeo links, this plugin saves it as a post meta video thumbnail link and adds it to og:image as a post thumbnail.

If I need to change some values?

You can use Simple SEO Improvements plugin, which is integrated with OG to:

  • set a default image
  • set facebook app_id
  • set twitter id

I need more!

Rich filters implementation allows to change almost every output of this plugin, but this is for technicians: learn more on OG Plugin Documentation Site.

Rezensionen

23. Mai 2022
The plugin corresponds to the declared purpose. There is no need to set the markup of shared link. Very simple. Recommend. However, if I have shared some page before the plugin installation, its markup is not recorrected even if I shared it once again.
5. Mai 2022
I don't claim to understand how all of this stuff works, but this did the trick to get my images to show up in Facebook links again!
12. April 2022
Does what is expected of it. Also clean enough code for making custom changes. Thank you!
