Fix Facebook Like

Description

Facebook Like many times gives problems like wrong thumbnail (og:image), wrong title (og:site_name), wrong description (og:description), etc. This plugin fixes them, as it enforces WordPress post thumbnail for image if a post is liked, or your website’s logo if home page is liked, post title if post is liked or blog title if home page is liked, it also uses excerpts for description(optional) or blog tagline if home page is liked.
In addition to these, it also gives the option to add your website type and admins of your website.

NOTE: This plugin doesn’t adds a Facebook Like button, but gives options/settings for it. There are many plugins to add Facebook Like buttons to your website, you can check them out.

It uses Open Graph protocol from Facebook for fixing these.

You can customize these in the Settings section:

  • Using post excerpt for description text
  • Type of website (og:type)

  • Admin Facebook IDs (fb:admins)
