    Funny you should ask — full support for WooCommerce, including Rich Pins, was added to NGFB Open Graph+ PRO v6.6 — just released last night! 😉

    From the Changelog: http://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/changelog/

    “Added support for WooCommerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for Facebook Products, Twitter Product Cards and Pinterest Rich Pins. WooCommerce product galleries, stock status, extended attributes, category and tag pages, are all supported.”

    js.

    Is there a way to change the site_name for the rich pins or make it capture only a certain number of characters?
    My site title is my company name and longer description. I would like it only to display the company name on rich pins.

    Thanks

    No problem – you can use the ‘ngfb_title’ filter (see the Other Notes for more info).

    js.

    Thanks, wouldn’t i need to rewrite th esite_name? If I change the ngfb_title wouldn’t that change the title of the whatever product page i was pinning, not the site_name?

    Ah, the ‘site_name’ – right. 😉

    Here you go:

    add_filter( 'ngfb_og', 'modify_ngfb_opengraph', 10, 1 );
    
    function modify_ngfb_opengraph( $og = array() ) {
            $og['og:site_name'] = 'My Custom Site Name';
            return $og;
    }

    js.

    Awesome, works like charm! I just may be upgrading! Thanks

    No problem.

    And if you have 2 mins to rate the plugin, that would be great. 😉

    Hi JS Morisset,

    I’m sorry if I was supposed to start a new thread for this, but since this one was about rich pins, I thought perhaps this goes here.

    I installed this plugin this morning, for the purpose of rich pins. It is working in so far as Pinterest approved them, however I am still rooting around trying to figure out why… (all day) 🙁

    #1 My site_title is not “”.com on pins – and more importantly I cannot seem to find where or how I include the favicon and site name to display on the pins. They are ‘article pins”.

    I see that you wrote to zappyone, to add this css function (somewhere(?)) as he has a site title (so do I) that I do not want to say what I want the site name to say on the pins, ie “.com”

    Please help. At this point in time this is ALL I need this plugin to do. My pins are not displaying a favicon and site name.com

    It would have been better to start a new support thread, but I’ll answer you here.

    Pinterest will use the information / meta tags in your webpage headers. NGFB Open Graph+ constructs the meta tags based on your WordPress configuration and webpage content.

    Do a View Source to have a look at the meta tags, or use the Facebook debugger https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ to display them (Rich Pins are basically Open Graph tags).

    Let me know which meta tag you’d like to change.

    If it’s the “og:site_name”, add something like this to your theme’s functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'ngfb_og', 'modify_ngfb_opengraph', 10, 1 );
    
    function modify_ngfb_opengraph( $og = array() ) {
        $og['og:site_name'] = 'My Custom Site Name';
        return $og;
    }

    js.

    FYI – Since this has come up twice now, I will add a new “Site Name” option on the General settings page. Look for it in the next version. 😉

    Done. Have a look at v6.12dev1 from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/nextgen-facebook.zip. The installation notes at http://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-facebook/installation/ cover the install of an archive.

    Let me know if this addresses your issue.

    js.

    Hi Js,

    Sorry for not starting the new thread. Trying not to be redundant and do my homework before bothering anyone. Since it was already a thread, I thought not to :/

    I have been in the back end, looking through all of the ‘og’ code for about uhhh 24 hours or more now, ugh – I also wrote to Pinterest BECAUSE some pins are pinning as rich pins and others are not.

    I’ve been reading the source code of many posts, using the rich pin validator and seeing that some posts validate, then others do not (they return a 503 when there’s not a thing wrong with my server) and I’m pulling my hair out.

    I also just ran some posts through the W3C validator and found that one line of og code (for facebook) is way up on line 2, and not sure why it is there – but apparently there are also issues from WordPress.
    *huge sigh*

    Site = bcr8tive.com

    Thanks much for the update, I’ll add it now and see how that goes.

    Don’t beat yourself up too much — the Pinterest validator is very flaky. They’re probably the ones having the issue. 😉 The Facebook debugger is a safer bet if you want to see / change / tweek your Open Graph / Rich Pin values.

    FYI – You probably want to disable whatever is creating this:

    <!-- enable attribution -->
    <a href="https://plus.google.com/{+PageId}" rel="publisher" />

    NGFB Open Graph+ will handle that for you (correctly). 😉

    js.

    Thank you JS – I just did disable that.

    THAT was yesterday when I was trying to get the Google Rich Snippet to work (thinking that was an issue ugh)

    Going to go install the update now that I’ve gotten the bulk of those errors to go away!

    Will get back to you to let you know how iit goes.

    Thank you again and please forgive any typos (I think I’m about blind otday ha)

    JS,

    I’ve removed the plugin but I’m very confused now.

    I read through the documentation.

    I don’t understand if I am supposed to REinstall the nextgen-open-graph.6.11.1 plugin and THEN the nextgen-facebook update or JUST the nextgen-facebook.

    Please advise. 🙁
