Why do I get unparsed [media-credit] shortcodes in my Facebook/Twitter/... previews with JetPack Publicize?

Unfortunately, this is a known bug in JetPack that can only be fixed by Automattic. As a workaround, use a different plugin for posting to social networks. Alternativel, if you make sure that you haven't got any images with credits within the first 55 words of your article, you should be fine, too.

Other Notes

Options

This plugin provides a few options which appear on the Media page under Settings. These options are:

  • Separator
  • Organization
  • Display credits after post

Example

This is best explained with an example. With a separator of " | " and an organization of The Daily Times, media inserted will be followed with a credit line appearing as follows, with the username linking to the author page for that user:

John Smith | The Daily Times

Further explanation

Separator: These are the characters that separate the display name for a user on your blog from the name of the organization, as described below. The default separator is " | " but feel free to change this to suit your needs.

Organization: This is what appears after the separator as listed above. The default organization is the name of your blog.

Display credits after post: With this option enabled, media credit shortcodes will not appear by default when inserting media into your posts. Instead, the plugin will look through the content of your posts for any media attachments and display something like the following at the end of each post with the CSS class .media-credit-end:

Images courtesy of John Smith | The Daily Times, Michael Scott and Jane Doe.

In this example, John Smith is a user of your blog, while the latter two credits are not.
