Sharing to Social Media

    Currently when sharing any forum post to a social media site like Facebook, no opengraph info is shown or pulled. Is this by design? Can we force meta info?

    1. Am I understanding correctly, that you want to add OpenGraph related tags to the <html><head>?

      You can add head tags, by adding <head>...</head> to the very top of a Talkyard page, example:

      <title>Page title</title>
      <meta name="description" content="Page description ...">
      <meta property="og:title" content="Page title" />
      And here goes the page text, as usual. This'll be inserted into the correct <body><div ...><div...><article><div ...> tag.

      Only certain tags are considered, namely <title> and <meta>, and only some attributes, namely property, content and name — and that's all that's needed, for OpenGraph?

      (Note to self: Here's the code:

      You'd do this "manually" (i.e. type <head><meta ...>) for each page. Is that an okay approach? Or would you prefer something more automatic somehow, and how would that work and what would it do :- )

          It would be nice if when sharing a forum topic the title of that topic is used for the og:title and the author of the topic is listed as well.
