    Hello jmlapam,

    I have been using JM Twitter Cards for a couple of months. I was trying to enable Twitter Cards, but had problems to work it correctly. With you plug-ins, I was able to use Twitter Cards. Thank you very much!

    I would like to let you know that since last plug in update, Twitter Card was not working. I checked it on the Card Validator.

    It said the twitter:description is missing.

    Here is an example of my site.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Regards,

    You need content also. If the page or post has not content (e.g just a shortcode [contact] ) it won't work unless you"re using seo plugins to add a description or custom fields.

    Hi jmlapam,

    Thank you for your response.

    The post has content, but does not work. I tested the URL of specific post on the Twitter Cards validation page. It returned there was no description.

    I have been using your plug-in on my blog site for a couple of months. It was working until just recently, probably about one week ago.

    For example you have 1 page with only shortcode [contact] this won't work for meta desc unless you set a custom desc with SEO plugins or custom fields option.

    I see you use Add Meta tags plugin. It could be a bad interaction with this plugin or another.

    However this this page/ works.

    Thank you for providing specific examples.

    Yes, I am using Add Meta Tags plugin. I also thought it might be the reason. So, I deactivated it, and tried again. However, it still did not work.

    BTW, I have not changed the configuration for a while. I have used both JM Twitter Cards and Add Meta Tags, and the Twitter card worked fine.

    Just in case, I now deactivate Add Meta Tags.

    I recall JM Twitter Cards, used to have the setting for the number of words for description. Now, I don't see it.

    Just curious, was there any reasons that you discontinued the setting for the number of words for description?

    Thank you again for your help.

    Hi,

    I'm afraid I do not see why you get this blank desc, I've put fallback everywhere so description is never empty. It's a required meta for Twitter Cards in most of card types.

    The reason for discontinuing excerpt feature is here.

    It is very strange why my posts that have contents don't get description.

    I will try to investigate by myself. I plan to post new articles of my blog. Hope it will work.

    I am using WordPress 3.7.3. May be I should upgrade to 3.9. I don't know it will resolve this issue.

    Thanks for the link for discontinuing excerpt feature.

    Hi,

    It's always a good idea to use the latest version of WP especially for security reasons.

    Let me know if your problem is solved.

    Hi,

    Just to give you heads-up.

    Yesterday, I posted new entry on my blog. Twitter Card worked at this time.

    I updated JM Titter Cards in accordance with this week's update. I am still using WP 3.7.3.

    I plan to post another one today or tomorrow. I will give you update. If it work, I will close this as resolved.

    Thanks,

    Sorry for the delay of my update. Since last update, it turned out it worked some posts, but not all.

    However, it has been working since last week.

    I will close this as resolved.

    Thank you for your help and support. I really appreciate it.
