Phoca Open Graph Plugin Twitter Card Help

Post by tazzarkin » 10 Dec 2020, 18:39

Two things:

1) Are there instructions on how to use Twitter Card Settings in the Open Graph Plugin and the Open Graph System Plugin? I looked at your instructions, and there was nothing listed for those options. If there is a location, please send me the link.

2) Is there a search option in this forum? I tried finding a forum search option (to find Twitter Card questions) and I couldn't find anywhere that would allow me to search the Forum (the Google Custom Search doesn't work).

Thank you in advance for any help.

When I run the Twitter Validator, it does not show the image (see picture below).

How do I get the image to show?

Hi, first of all, check your html source code, if the tags are listed there, if the path to image is right and if the image fits the image rules.

When I make twitter posts, sometimes, the image is not included but when I test it second time, everything is OK there (hard to say what can be wrong in communication between twitter and the server - but this happens now rarely)

Jan,

Thank you for the reply, as well as the suggestions.

I think that maybe it had something to do with the article. My other articles worked fine, but in this one instance, Twitter seemed to be against it. Every other article worked fine.

However, I still think that the forum (and plugin) should have some Twitter Card instructions. Maybe it got added to the plugin later (after the instructions were originally written). Twitter card instructions would really help first-time users.

I just want to say the plugin is really a great thing to have, and thankful to Phoca for making it. It really is a benefit to the Joomla community.

Hi, yes, the twitter card feature was added later, so yes, the documentation needs to be updated.
