Support » Plugin: WP Facebook Open Graph protocol » og:description issues, All In One SEO

  • Resolved JboyJW


    I’m using the All In One SEO plugin and set the page description to auto-generate from the content.

    But the og:description generated by your plugin always shows <meta property=”og:description” content=” “/>. This generally fine because Facebook pulls the description from the content by default.

    But I have a page where I’m using All In One SEO’s feature to override the Page Description on a specific page, which works, but the og:description still doesn’t get the description from All In One SEO. And therefore Facebook still shows the default description generated from the content. The page I’m talking about can be found here:

    Does your plugin not play nice with All In One SEO?

    It used to. AIOSEO changes constantly. If you had an excerpt it should pull that, but it should also pull what’s in the content. I’m not sure how your ‘pages’ are setup but if there’s nothing in the_content() or it’s all in shortcodes it has nothing to display. So.. without some further info on how that’s setup I don’t really have a better answer for you.
    Learning more about how it works… er how it doesn’t work… will help me fix that in a future release.

    It’s using the Dante theme which has its own Swift Page Builder. But it’s just shortcode-based like Visual Composer so there’s still plenty of actual content in the_content. It’s a Page, so there’s no excerpt.
    Either way, the more important issue in this instance is when AIOSEO overrides the description meta tag on a specific Page and I need the og:description tag to acquire the same description.

    Anything following “pagebuilder” is lol. Those are always a problem and they all act differently… anyway, that said. So basically you’d like it to use the aioseo description when it’s filled out. I don’t see their OG output so is that even on in the plugin?

    In the new version I’m rebuilding (insanely slowly w/ client work etc) I need to test all that again; it’s been a while. But almost certainly pagebuilders will continue to screw things up as they do.

    Yep, it’s there. The OG stuff is lines 156 through 164 in the View Source from your plugin. And the meta description that I overrode through aioseo is line 73.

    Anywho, that’s fine. I’ll see if I can override the og:description programmatically for now. Thanks.
