    Is it possible to customize the URL that gets shared by AddThis? I know I can include the publisher ID to get analytics but I would like to customize the URL being shared on pinterest for example. Is there a place in the code somewhere I can put this? Or can you share where the addthis is being called in the javascript?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Thanks for contacting AddThis Support!

    In order to control what appears in sharing dialogs on social platforms, you need to specify Open Graph meta tags. I would suggest adding the following Open Graph tags to each of your pages: og:image, og:description, og:title, and og:url.

    Check out Facebook’s Developer Documentation for more information:
    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/webmasters/#markup

    If you’ve already added Open Graph tags, I’d suggest looking at the Facebook Debugger to see if Facebook is reporting any errors:

    Please let me know if you need further assistance and thanks so much for using AddThis!

    I want to do something like this, for pinterest specifically – not for everything: https://www.addthis.com/academy/setting-the-url-title-to-share/

    Where is the javascript or call to do the sharing in the plugins code?

    THanks

    Hi there,

    You can specify the share URL as described in the link but it will affect all the services.

    We basically just passes the URL to the service scrappers and its the service scrapper that decide the content to share from the page meta tags. Unfortunately we don’t have any control over this behavior.

    Elsa.

    Can you tell me where in the code this ‘passing’ occurs please?
