  • Resolved bbllr87


    My website is

    I have three pages where I am using your plugin: Engagements, News and Reviews. For each of them I am using the showlist shortcode as follows:

    [showlist catid="nn" excerpt="true" wrapper="true"]

    Since sometime between 23rd December and 30th December, these pages have been showing the excerpts from the post(s) displayed on the page at the start of the page (before the header image).

    Yesterday I identified the cause – Jetpack. It seems that just having Jetpack enabled causes it to add open graph tags to the page <head> section, and in doing this it also displays the excerpt to the user.

    The tags themselves are no bad thing, since the site does link to Twitter and Facebook; I also use other features of Jetpack, so would rather not just deactivate it.

    However I am not sure where to go from here.

    • Is there something you can do?
    • Is there something you can describe to me that I can do (I do not have access to the fileserver at the moment, so all changes I make have to be through WordPress admin)?
    • Should I raise it with whoever makes Jetpack?

    I have temporarily disabled Jetpack until this is resolved so that the post excerpts don’t show at the moment. However this is not a fix, as I do want to continue to use some of its features.

    Since last night this is happening with WordPress 3.5 (I upgraded), and version 2.2.1 of Jetpack. I have 3.0.6 of Category Pages & Posts Shortcodes.



    Same exact thing happening on I am thankful that you discovered that the issue is with Jetpack and so, like you, I have deactivated it. However, this solution is not feasible for the long term as there are many Jetpack features that I use. Have you been able to get any further information? I upgraded to WordPress 3.5 this morning. It’s always something.

    I was able to narrow it down due to the fact it was happening on my Production site and not on the localhost installation where I cannot use Jetpack.

    I don’t think the problem is anything to do with the upgrade to WordPress 3.5; it was happening on my site before I upgraded.

    After I posted I found an alternative plugin to Category Pages & Posts Shortcodes, called List Category Posts. I have started using this in the interim but it does mean I have been able to re-enable Jetpack. However you would need to go through your website and change the shortcodes.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Sorry people: we tried a lot but we couldn’t reproduce this bug in any way. There are still issues with jetpack?

    Sorry for the delay in replying. I was away.

    Have just tried it again. Yes it still happens. Let me know if there is any more information that may help.

    Think we finally got it. We’re going to release a major upgrade with WP 3.6 and we’ll keep an eye on jetpack-related issues.

    as far as we know, the issue with jetpack is fixed.

    have you tried removing the OG tags via your functions.php?

    you would add this:

    remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘jetpack_og_tags’ );

    a little checkbox somewhere in Jetpack to disable opengraph would be amazing! a lot of us use various OG/SEO tools and the doubling up causes a lot of conflicts.
