Facebook question

Recommended Posts


When i post an update on Facebook and link to an article, the snippet fetches a few elements that i do not want to show up.

In the image i marked it with red:

  • Author
  • Post date
  • Add comment

How can i customize this output?

Hi there, use the facebook debugger tool to see what content it's pulling from the page, there's some options there where you can make edits like thumbnail choices etc - http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug I don't know if it will separate out the meta info though, worth a shot though as you might be able to isolate it.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks James B I tried it, but apart from some interesting info, it doesnt help to leave out that specific meta info.

When i post an update from another Pagelines blog, it works ok. Perhaps you could see the difference when linking to:

      I know this does not have anything to do with Pagelines directly but this is happening on my PL5 site.  At the bottom of my blog posts I have put the Facebook Comments Plugin and it works well but when people are leaving comments they are the same for every post.  Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this so the comments are for the post they are on.  Does that make sense? Ha!
      Thanks for any ideas folks.

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I'm sure this is just user fatigue...but where is the setting to delete the Facebook button in the Splash section of Teamwork? You'd think it would be in the Splash area, but it seems
      to be hiding elsewhere!  You can barely see it... I didn't even notice it until I changed the image.

      When trying to activate the Facebook Plugin, using the Bootstrap Theme under Platform 5, the following Fatal Error occurs:
      Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' in /wp-content/plugins/pl-plugin-login-facebook/libs/fblogin.php on line 35
      If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated...

      Hi there!
      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!
      Can someone explain me how to create them? I tried a lot but don't know how to realize them...
