  • Bugfix: when the og:image is not hosted on the same domain as the website/blog.


  • If the option is set to true, the same image obtained to the og:image will be added to the RSS feed on the enclosure and media:content tags so that apps like RSS Graffiti and twitterfeed post them correctly.

  • It's now possible to choose how the post/page og:image tag is set. It means that if the user doesn't want to use the featured/thumbnail image, or the first image in the post content, or the first image on the media gallery, or even the default image, he can choose not to.

  • A final trailing slash can now be added to the homepage url, if the user wants to. Avoids 'circular reference error' on the Facebook debugger.

  • Fixed the namespace declarations.


  • Type "website" was being used as default for all the urls beside posts. This is wrong. According to Facebook Open Graph specification only the homepage should be "website" and all the other contents must bu "article". This was fixed.
  • On Category and Tags pages, their descriptions, if not blank, are used for the og:description tag.
  • If the description comes out empty, the title is used on this tag.


  • Changed the plugin priority, so that it shows up as late as possible on the tag, and it won't be override by another plugin's Open Graph implementation, because other plugins usually don't allow to disable the tags. If you want to keep a specific tag from another plugin, you can just disable that tag on this plugin options.


  • Settings link now shows up on the plugins list.
  • Small fix to ensure admin functions only are running when on the admin interface.
  • Some admin options now only show up when the tag is set to be included.

  • Added the option to use a Custom text as homepage og:description instead of the Website Tagline.
  • Fixed a bug that wouldn't allow to uncheck the og:image tag.
