[resolved] Jetpack Publicize sharing buttons not showing URL (3 posts)

    On my blog, http://mamalovesmedia.com/, I activated Publicize but I am having two issues:

    1) When you share from the buttons at the bottom of the post, only the titles comes up - no URL.

    2) When it shares to Facebook & Twitter, the post it refers back to is a default setting URL not the URL with the month and title that I have set in my general settings.

    Thanks!

    When you share a post on Facebook, or when Jetpack Publicize publishes a post to your Facebook page, Facebook crawls the page and looks for Open Graph meta tags in the head to build a complete post preview (with an image, title, description, ...).

    Jetpack builds these meta tags for you, unless you already use another plugin to do so. On your site, Open Graph meta tags are managed by the WordPress SEO plugin.

    However, your theme or one of your plugins seem to force WordPress to generate relative URLS instead of the default absolute URLs. As a result, Facebook and Twitter cannot gather any relevant information about your post.

    You can see the issue in the Facebook debugger here:

    I would consequently recommend that you deactivate the plugin or the theme function that transforms your site URLs. That should solve the issue on your site.

    Oh, thank you! I will try that.
