[resolved] Feature Request: Compatibility with official facebook plugin (2 posts)

    First, thanks for the great plugin. I just wanted to ask if you plan to enhance compatibility with the official WordPress plugin from facebook.

    Right now, both plugins, yours and facebook’s, add pretty much the same Open Graph tags, including "og:url". However, the official facebook plugin does not add "og:image" (actually, there are a lot of things it doesn’t do), so I’d still like to use your plugin.

    Do you think you could add an option to select which Open Graph tags should be generated (or, alternatively, which should be ommitted)? It would be very much appreciated.


    Edit: Oh, and I know about the "fb_meta_tags" filter, but I’d rather avoid writing code for what seems a simple feature.

    Yeah there are issues with the "official" plugin. As far as I remember you could turn off the meta output in that plugin's settings. Probably do that.

    They asked me to help and/or advise on the project... i'd love to i'm just too busy. perhaps that collaboration will take place in the near future.

    I released this a long time ago before anybody had any OGP plugins out... there was one before mine... now there's like 298472398472. Just need to know what plugin is outputting what info. This plugin still, in my opinion, handles the information better than most. Yoast has updated his enough as of late to where his is good too but the others have a lot of technical catch up to do.
