Ive been wanting to use fastsocialshare plug in or similar to set my Joomla open graph tags working nicely per article, however when in place for featured layouts, it just takes the text from the bottom article, rather than the main text. I assume this is because the featured layout is made up of a set of articles.
I don’t really want to do it in the template by putting open graph tags into the custom code window as then its the same sharing image and text across the whole website.
Heres an example of one: https://gse.cat.org.uk/index.php/postgraduate-courses/msc-sustainability-in-energy-provision-and-demand-management
When I click to share on Facebook its just getting some irrelevant text from article at the bottom.
I can sort the image as this can be set using an image folder numbered correctly. But for the text…
Its a bit annoying! Any ideas?
Feature intro layout also use the intro image to show on front end. Have you checked with extension provider for using the extension on a blog layout page.
Also test it with category blog pages and see how it works on it.
It works OK on this category blog page: https://gse.cat.org.uk/index.php/postgraduate-courses
Except I need to make my category titles more sharing-friendly
I think Ive found a way round my problem with featured layout, which is to move the share buttons to a section of the page with more relevant text, probably the top banner, as then it reads the text from within the article it sits in.
