  • Resolved jflopezd


    Currently no links are appearing and the widget, which does show up in the widgets menu, does not show anything next to single posts either. I am using the latest versions of WordPress and the plugin (as of 3.12.12).

    Here is my site:

    Thanks for letting me know. I just released an update that I think will fix this issue for you. Please try the new version and let me know if it works for you.

    Aloha, Eli


    I updated to version of your plugin with no luck. However, I figured out that the links and widget only failed to appear with my current modified theme. Various other themes I tried, even the original version of my Equilibrium theme, worked.

    Happily, I found the exact code snippet that was causing trouble. I had put this in my header:

    <?php if (is_single() || is_page() ) : if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <meta property="og:description" content="<?php the_excerpt_rss(); ?>" />
    <meta name="description" content="<?php the_excerpt_rss(); ?>" />
    <?php endwhile; endif; elseif(is_home()) : ?>
    <meta property="og:description" content="<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>" />
    <?php endif; ?>
    		<?php wp_head(); ?>

    Now that I removed it, the links and widget work as advertised. I don’t know much about php, but I’m guessing you call is_single() in a way that conflicts with putting this code in the header. Luckily I don’t need it because I now have an SEO plugin that handles descriptions. I hope this information is useful!

    if you make a loop like while ( have_posts() ) I think you should have wp_reset_query() after the loop so that any code that follows can use the same loop. I think that is what went wrong. I’m glad you figured it out.

    Could you please vote “works” at the bottom right of this page

    Thanks, Eli
