  • Resolved marikamitsos


    We use v6.1.5.0 and ran the facebook Object Debugger.

    What we found out was this:

    Open Graph Warnings That Should Be Fixed

    Extraneous Property: Objects of this type do not allow properties named ‘shareaholic:site_name‘.
    Parser Mismatched Metadata: The parser’s result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: ‘shareaholic:site_name’

    And further down:

    Raw Open Graph Document Information
    Meta Tag: <meta property=”shareaholic:site_name” content=”NameOfMySite” />

    We do NOT remember adding any of these:meta property=”shareaholic:site_name”. How did they get there and why?

    Could someone explain what it all means and how it can be fixed/removed?

    Hi marikamitsos,

    Have you cleared all caching plugins after you upgraded to

    Instead of the following (no longer used by Shareaholic):

    <meta property="shareaholic:site_name" content="NameOfMySite" />

    Shareaholic v6.1.5.0+ now uses the following tag, which eliminates all warnings with the Facebook’s debugger:

    <meta name="shareaholic:site_name" content='NameOfMySite' />

    These tags are used by Shareaholic to learn more about your webpages so as to optimize the sharing and related content experience. These meta tags do not interfere with the functionality and/or rendering of your wordpress site.


    Please let us know if you have any more questions and whether clearing your plugin cache fixes it! If not, we’re here to help troubleshoot.

    When I run my webpage on, I still get error.

    Line 76, Column 73: Bad value shareaholic:site_name for attribute name on element meta: Keyword shareaholic:site_name is not registered.
    <meta name=’shareaholic:site_name’ content=’Verity Business Solutions’ />
    Syntax of metadata name:
    A metadata name listed in the HTML specification or listed in the WHATWG wiki. You can register metadata names on the WHATWG wiki yourself.

    Hi Rajesh,

    Please, take a look at this article concerning W3C validation. I hope you find this information useful.

    Hi Celeste,

    The problem is that Shareaholic has not registered the meta names.

    Please register the meta names
