  • Resolved GNaschenweng


    For clarity please: How can I restrict the number of characters posted as the description on FB?

    Is it possible to take the description provided to SEO Ultimate or is there any other way to control what is displayed as part of the FB post?

    If you provide an excerpt (an actual Post Excerpt) that will be used by WPBook.

    If not, there is currently no way in settings to restrict what gets posted.

    The logic is in the wpbook/includes/publish_to_facebook.php if you want to tackle it in code.

    What should WPBook post? It’s a bit tricky as what FB allows is evolving all the time – should we just post a link, or also some kind of custom message just for FB?



    Hi there,

    the Post Excerpt is perfect. I was not sure what was used for the auto-post, but your suggestion resolves the issue.

    I assume that if the Post Excerpt is changed after WPBook posted to Facebook, the FB post will not be updated – or? (I am thinking of spelling mistakes introduced by our content team).
