WP Facebook Open Graph protocol
[resolved] Getting it to work when Blog is not root (2 posts)

    My site has a splash page on the root that is just a simple html/php file. It has no FB OG values defined.

    When a user clicks through to the blog they are taken to root/news/ , however blog posts appear with the URL root/blog-post.html

    The problem arises when linking or Liking a blog post/article as the facebook API tries to pull OG values from the root where no OG values exist.

    It will only work if I specify the URL as root/news/blog-article.html - then this pulls the correct values from your plugin. But this is only going to happen if I share the link manually on facebook and manually edit the path to include the "/news/" sub directory.

    the site is defytheocean[dot]com

    I'm sure you'll see what I'm talking about...

    I have now fixed this by amending my permalinks structure in wordpress with the prefix "/news" .

    Thanks.... This is a great plugin and exactly what I want...
