Tilt Social Share Widget
It doesn't share the tagline on the home page (5 posts)

    Hello

    First of all I want to say that I love this plugin, it's what I was looking for because it's a widget, and also because the icons are clean and beautiful.

    I'm also glad that you updated it in order to share the homepage not the last post.

    However, while it shares the correct url, the text displayed is not the tagline but the first lines from the featured page on the homepage slider. Is there anything you can do about this? Or is the problem somewhere else, not in the plugin?

    My website is earthhomethailand.com, using Chameleon theme from Elegant Themes.

    I will keep the plugin anyway and gave it a 5 star rating but it would be great if you could help with this!

    Thanks!

    Hi DanaC,

    I checked out your website, and it's not a plugin problem. If you take a look at the URL for each share button you use:

    http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=http://earthhomethailand.com&title=Earth+Home

    https://plus.google.com/share?url=http://earthhomethailand.com

    http://twitter.com/home?status=Earth+Home+http://Fearthhomethailand.com

    As you can see, what is shared is always the homepage address and site title. However, the share services (Facebook, Google+, etc...) always try to take out some information about the link you're sharing. In this case, they get your articles information.

    For every sharing service, I try to share as much as I can, for some services there's only space for URL and site title. There are other which will give you more control on what you share, and on those cases, the tagline is included.

    Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it, it's a service limitation. Even if you tried other share plugins, you would get the same result.

    Thanks for using Tilt Social Share widget and for your rating. Hope it helps.

    Oh.. :-(

    I kinda suspected it wasn't fixable.

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this!

    Hi again!

    Just wanted to say that it's working fine now. Google searches are now showing the description from my meta tag instead of the text on the page, and so is Facebook.
