    Did you guys ever decide if you were going to come up with a solution for WooCommerce and Pinterest Rich Pins?

    Funny you should ask -- full support for WooCommerce, including Rich Pins, was added to NGFB Open Graph+ PRO v6.6 -- just released last night! ;-)

    From the Changelog: http://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/changelog/

    "Added support for WooCommerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for Facebook Products, Twitter Product Cards and Pinterest Rich Pins. WooCommerce product galleries, stock status, extended attributes, category and tag pages, are all supported."

    Is there a way to change the site_name for the rich pins or make it capture only a certain number of characters?
    My site title is my company name and longer description. I would like it only to display the company name on rich pins.

    Thanks

    No problem - you can use the 'ngfb_title' filter (see the Other Notes for more info).

    Thanks, wouldn't i need to rewrite th esite_name? If I change the ngfb_title wouldn't that change the title of the whatever product page i was pinning, not the site_name?

    Ah, the 'site_name' - right. ;-)

    Here you go:

    add_filter( 'ngfb_og', 'modify_ngfb_opengraph', 10, 1 );
    
    function modify_ngfb_opengraph( $og = array() ) {
            $og['og:site_name'] = 'My Custom Site Name';
            return $og;
    }

    js.

    No problem.

    And if you have 2 mins to rate the plugin, that would be great. ;-)

    Hi JS Morisset,

    I'm sorry if I was supposed to start a new thread for this, but since this one was about rich pins, I thought perhaps this goes here.

    I installed this plugin this morning, for the purpose of rich pins. It is working in so far as Pinterest approved them, however I am still rooting around trying to figure out why... (all day) :(

    #1 My site_title is not "".com on pins - and more importantly I cannot seem to find where or how I include the favicon and site name to display on the pins. They are 'article pins".

    I see that you wrote to zappyone, to add this css function (somewhere(?)) as he has a site title (so do I) that I do not want to say what I want the site name to say on the pins, ie ".com"

    Please help. At this point in time this is ALL I need this plugin to do. My pins are not displaying a favicon and site name.com

    bcr8tive~

    It would have been better to start a new support thread, but I'll answer you here.

    Pinterest will use the information / meta tags in your webpage headers. NGFB Open Graph+ constructs the meta tags based on your WordPress configuration and webpage content.

    Do a View Source to have a look at the meta tags, or use the Facebook debugger https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ to display them (Rich Pins are basically Open Graph tags).

    Let me know which meta tag you'd like to change.

    If it's the "og:site_name", add something like this to your theme's functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'ngfb_og', 'modify_ngfb_opengraph', 10, 1 );
    
    function modify_ngfb_opengraph( $og = array() ) {
        $og['og:site_name'] = 'My Custom Site Name';
        return $og;
    }

    js.

    FYI - Since this has come up twice now, I will add a new "Site Name" option on the General settings page. Look for it in the next version. ;-)

    Done. Have a look at v6.12dev1 from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/nextgen-facebook.zip. The installation notes at http://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/installation/ cover the install of an archive.

    Let me know if this addresses your issue.

    Hi Js,

    Sorry for not starting the new thread. Trying not to be redundant and do my homework before bothering anyone. Since it was already a thread, I thought not to :/

    I have been in the back end, looking through all of the 'og' code for about uhhh 24 hours or more now, ugh - I also wrote to Pinterest BECAUSE some pins are pinning as rich pins and others are not.

    I've been reading the source code of many posts, using the rich pin validator and seeing that some posts validate, then others do not (they return a 503 when there's not a thing wrong with my server) and I'm pulling my hair out.

    I also just ran some posts through the W3C validator and found that one line of og code (for facebook) is way up on line 2, and not sure why it is there - but apparently there are also issues from WordPress.
    *huge sigh*

    Site = bcr8tive.com

    Thanks much for the update, I'll add it now and see how that goes.

    Don't beat yourself up too much -- the Pinterest validator is very flaky. They're probably the ones having the issue. ;-) The Facebook debugger is a safer bet if you want to see / change / tweek your Open Graph / Rich Pin values.

    FYI - You probably want to disable whatever is creating this:

    <!-- enable attribution -->
    <a href="https://plus.google.com/{+PageId}" rel="publisher" />

    NGFB Open Graph+ will handle that for you (correctly). ;-)

    Thank you JS - I just did disable that.

    THAT was yesterday when I was trying to get the Google Rich Snippet to work (thinking that was an issue ugh)

    Going to go install the update now that I've gotten the bulk of those errors to go away!

    Will get back to you to let you know how iit goes.

    Thank you again and please forgive any typos (I think I'm about blind otday ha)

    JS,

    I've removed the plugin but I'm very confused now.

    I read through the documentation.

    I don't understand if I am supposed to REinstall the nextgen-open-graph.6.11.1 plugin and THEN the nextgen-facebook update or JUST the nextgen-facebook.

    Please advise. :(

    First, remove the existing plugin, using either the "Automated Removal" or "Manual Removal" method.

    Then install the archive you download using either the "Semi-Automated Install" or "Manual Install" method.

    Here the link to the current DEV version again: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/nextgen-facebook.zip

    Hi JS,

    I've done it. It's installed.
    SOME pins are pinning rich. (on a private board to test)

    However there are still issues.

    The W3C reports that the

    <html lang="en-US" xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns" xmlns:fb="http://ogp.me/ns/fb">

    should be on line #2

    Is this line from this plugin?

    Also, I have tall thin fashion images - so far, when I pin those, the pin isn't rich. It SEEMS as though when I pin an average sized image - the pin does pin rich (though I can't be sure yet, still testing)

    Probably related to this question in the FAQ:

    Q20. The W3C Markup Validation Service says "there is no attribute 'property'".
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/faq/

    If you want more specific help, as usual, you'll have to provide a URL to an example page/post.

    Hi JS,

    Thank you, I read that from your link, so I moved on.

    Here is what I am experiencing. Some pins are rich, some are not. Sometimes a pin, pins rich from the very same post that DOES NOT pin a rich pin.

    Example posts:
    http://bcr8tive.com/metin-demiralay-photography/
    This post pins rich and then NOT rich.

    THIS Post pins consistently rich.:
    http://bcr8tive.com/julien-macdonald-spring-2014/

    Example - NO rich pins:
    http://bcr8tive.com/modern-mediterranean-design/

    You can also tell how they are pinning by viewing the source from Pinterest
    http://www.pinterest.com/source/bcr8tive.com/

    This shows what is being pinned from the site live - and if they're pinning rich (if at all - most are not) :(

    Last, the site name over ride doesn't seem to be working..,
    I changed it to .com and it doesn't display .com - it still displays as 'from bcr8tive' when it is a rich pin....

    Hi,

    I've been on this all night again. According to the W3, that line of FB code doesn't belong on line #2 - I have no idea if that is causing an issue though it is perplexing why it isn't included with the rest of the coding for the plugin.

    No matter what I have tried i haven't been able to get the pins to pin rich now. Even more perplexing is I came across a WordPress site that had JUST the OG's from jetpack - and their pins were all rich.

    I'm nearly sick with trying to get this to work. Not sure if you can help but certainly would appreciate it if you can. ALl of this and the documentation etc is very intense and not for the average non-techy person - and I'm techy but not this techy. If I were, I'd have spent the last 2 days writing my own plugin to just add the metas and leave out all of the rest that I don't need. :(

    I just removed the plugin for now until when and if I can get a better handle on it.
