[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] How do you set the og:locale value? (3 posts)

    WordPress SEO version

    WordPress SEO is generating a Facebook open graph og:locale meta tag with 'en_US' as the value.

    I'd like to use 'en_AU' as the value. How can I achieve this?

    I tried changing the WPLANG setting in my wp_config.php file, but that didn't do it.

    Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.

    I used the following in my theme functions.php file to set to en_GB

    add_filter('wpseo_locale', 'override_og_locale');
    function override_og_locale($locale)
    	return "en_GB";

    Yoast has a check for valid facebook locales when using the function above. Yoast will default to 'en_US' if the 'return' value is not in this list:
