Slick Social Share Buttons – excerpt won't update, yucky short code in it

  • Oh, here’s the site. This page is a prime example of the problem: http://baseball-insider.com/insider-blog/

    I am not getting any responses from the plugins home website. I am pretty sure they just took my question and trashed it. Since I can’t get any help with the problem, I have deactivated the plugin.

    Hello,

    I also had this problem. After doing some research I found that Slick Social Share buttons was incorrectly generating the description for sharing to social media. The description was including shortcodes without actually parsing them. As you describe.

    I Disabled Opengraph in the Slick Social Share settings and this fixed the problem.

    I use Yoast SEO Plugin and that generates a nice description.

    You can still use slick social buttons, just disable Opengraph and see how that goes.

    🙂

    Thank you so much for responding to my question. I’ll let you know how it works out

    Hi
    Now you can solve this problem in very easy step
    Open your plugin file dcwp_social.php
    path :wp-content/plugins/slick-social-share-buttons/inc/dcwp_social.php
    and go to line number 629
    and comment the line
    like this
    /*$title .= ‘
    <meta property=”og:description” content=”‘.substr(@strip_tags(str_replace(array(“[“,”]”,'”‘),””,$post_by_id[‘post_content’])), 0, 200).'”/>
    ‘;*/
