  • I was using Yoast to correct what shared links look like on Facebook/G+ (remove:

    ‘- Site Title’ from the title when you share a link, as well as adjust the description (first 100 or so words of article).

    But Yoast caused a problem on my sites today, and for the small job I want to use Yoast for (editing share info), it’d be better to use a less complicated plugin, if there is one. Anyone know of one?

  • Hi ordresser, I’d give this plugin a try: Sewn In Simple Social Optimization

    It’s neat and simple, specifically designed for Title and Descriptions, but could get really powerful while combined with its siblings plugins like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sewn-in-simple-seo/ of this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sewn-in-xml-sitemap/

    There are also few code snippets in the plugin description (of each one), could use these to further enhance/modify the features.

    Hope these will help đŸ™‚

    Cheers!
    Alex.

    This looks like it does the trick for individual posts and pages. But really I want to set it globally (remove the – Site Name, edit the snippet) as well as individually.

    Then you could go with https://wordpress.org/plugins/complete-open-graph/

    It globally removes the site title part of titles by default and it adds an Open Graph Settings box on individual posts and pages where you could edit shared title and description individually and independently from post/page title and content. Otherwise it pulls these info from the post/page itself (but removing the site title part as I said).

    This is the simple, plugin approach, otherwise there are some code snippets to achieve more customized results with some more effort – please let me know if you would like to go that way.

    Have a great weekend!
    Alex.

    Hi,

    Thanks Alex,

    I ended up just putting some meta info into my head section, which was kind of better overall because no plugins needed. Thanks for your help though!
