    Hi Darius,

    So I guess visual composer (whatever that is) does the same thing that Divi theme does. You can read more about it here if you like: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/ogdescription-for-home-page-only-shows-code-instead-of-description-text/

    That said, I don’t have any plans to investigate this issue with relation to visual composer (I’m tied up on other projects), so for now I would suggest trying an alternative plugin.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention all the same.

    Having just installed the plugin and run into the same issue with VC, there is a solution that is easy and worth a try:

    If you have an Excerpt for your page, the plugin will use that for the OG: Description field.

    Excerpts are not available for WP pages by default so you’ll need to force them on by adding this to your theme’s function.php file:

    add_post_type_support( ‘page’, ‘excerpt’ );

    You’ll need to make sure you have ‘Excerpts’ turned on in your WordPress dashboard Screen Options for pages.

    Works for me.
