WP 3.4 update seems to have messed up page tab headers (13 posts)

    Since updating WP to 3.4, there seems to be a problem with posting links to the social networking sites, whether it's via the sharing buttons at the end of each post or just cutting and pasting the link manually.

    When I try to share the links, all that shows now is ARTICLE as the title, then the description of the article says, Let us help you plan your next big adventure.

    For an example of what it is I'm talking about, go to my website, http://www.explorationtravelmagazine.com and choose any article. Try to share it using one of the social network buttons and see how it comes up. You can also just cut and paste the link and the same result happens.

    Is there some way I can fix this or am I doomed to having troublesome social sharing until WP figures out this is happening?

    The issue is not with WP, it is with the plugin, contact them about this issue.

    Um, thanks for the fast response but... which plugin? It does it whether I use the social sharing buttons or just cut and paste the link without using any plugins at all, I just go to the website such as Digg or Stumbleupon and paste the web address. It does the same thing.

    All of them...

    bit.ly
    Facebook status window
    Twitter
    Pinterest
    Digg
    Delic.ious
    Google+
    LinkedIn
    Reddit
    tumblr

    I think that's it... Anywhere a preview of the link is given, it comes up with the title being Article and the description being Let us help you plan your next adventure

    Also, this only cropped up with the upgrade - the tab at the top of ALL posts now says Article.

    I cannot guess which plugin is causing the issue (but clearly one is) so deactivate it and look for a compatible plugin for WP3.4 or contact your plugin dev. and inquire about this issue).

    If not sure which plugin, deactivate all of them and then activate one at a time testing site each step and reviewing which is causing the issue.

    I just turned off every plugin I had and tried manually posting a link in my FB page and it still did the same thing.

    It's obviously not a plugin problem. I am also in contact with the developers of my theme to see if it's an upgrade they need to do. However, I'm feeling, more and more, as though this is a WP coding issue.

    Switch to default theme and see if problem persists there...

    SwansonPhotos - I used that plugin, got it all setup, was hopeful things would be different. Nope - it still posted the same generic stuff.

    And, WPyogi - I don't really want to go through the whole "switch to the default theme" because I'm simply not that smart when it comes to WP and websites. I don't want to mess things up totally with the site.

    Nancy, I want to help but find it quite difficult to do so...

    Yeah, this seems to be a bit of a poser.

    I'm going to see what, if anything, the theme developers say. I might have to go through the whole process of changing themes. I have one I bought several months ago and never implemented...

    Might be time, so long as there's an update making it compatible with 3.4.
