WPBook
[resolved] 2 Problems - Description and Sharing (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I am having two problems with WP-Book, and not sure how to fix.

    1. When I share a story on Facebook (automatically using WP-Book), it no longer grabs any description. It will only grab the thumbnail, and the title, but without the description, many people skip over the stories now.

    2. Additionally, when we share our stories, we now no longer have the 'Share' emblem next to our stories, and therefore, our readers can't easily share our stories on their personal Facebook walls.

    Does WP-Book Lite by chance fix any of these issues, or could we have a plugin that is ruining the description? Thanks!

    I don't know of any reason why WPBook would not get a description. If you provide a post excerpt it should be used. Any plugin which filters the excerpt thought could impact WPBook.

    The Share button is under Facebook's control - they don't add, for whatever reason, a share button next to posts which come from APIs.
