    Hi sheaney,

    Looking at the source for that page, I can see…

    <meta property="og:title" content="What is “Kiai”?" />

    …and so Facebook should indeed be picking up the title.

    I just ran the page URL though the official Facebook debugger, and can see everything looks fine: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/?q=http%3A%2F%2Fthe-martial-way.com%2Fwhat-is-kiai%2F

    I’d say it was just a case of Facebook’s scraping engine was a little slow getting the open graph meta from your page. That can sometimes be the case, and if you ever have that issue again just run the page URL though the Facebook Debugger (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/) and hit the ‘Scrape’ button.

    It is pulling the ARTICLE/BLOG title, but it isn’t pulling the SITE name. Which it shows in your url above. It has the blog title but not the site. It should say:

    What is “Kiai”? | The Martial Way

    <meta property=”og:site_name” content=”The Martial Way” />

    Is missing

    Hi again,

    Sorry I misunderstood you the first time.

    og:site_name and og:title are two different things for a good reason.

    The post name is: What is “Kiai”?.

    It post name is not: What is “Kiai”? | The Martial Way.

    Facebook is not going to magically string them together, so I’d have to modify the plugin so that the site name is also output into the og:title (it would be easy), which honestly I have no plans to do.

    Other plugins that handle open graph might be able to combine those two, and if it’s critical to your blog then it might be a good idea to try an alternative.

    Sorry I can’t be of any more help.

    For what it’s worth I plan to give this plugin some long overdue attention soon.

    Good luck.
