    When publishing to a Facebook fan page from the social publisher feature in the Facebook plugin for WordPress, it appears to post on something that starts with <p>"a few characters" followed by ... then "a few characters" repeated again with some more of the message

    For example, this post to WordPress resulted in the following on our facebook page:

    How do I get WordPress to send the correct title/description for each post to Facebook when publishing via Social Publisher? Correct title/description is one that does not include HTML code or repeat the same content.

Send your input to the Search Committee today! In addition, the College is hosting regional forums...

    Hello,
    Thanks waldito!
    I applied it on my blog, and it works...
    However, this strips out the html tags, but the repetition of the first line remains.
    Is it possible to get rid of those repeated characters?
    Thanks!

    Hi, I have the repetition issue as well, this is after i had the html markup problem too. This plugin seems more trouble than its worth?

    anyone got a solution?
