Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Re-usable Code Translations  

This simple trick allows you to change Thread's Meta tag from ForumHome Meta details to thread description.


Before :



After :


Instruction :

Edit facebook_opengraph in the template

Replace :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's all.

Now when you share in facebook, you will see the Thread desc as the meta tag.


Disclaimer :
  • I tried changing many codes in Template and finally succeeded. So I am not responsible if there is any problem.
  • Length of Meta Keyword/description may be greater than 200 words.

P.S :
Facebook caches the meta title and desc. when you try to share any link. In that case, you won't see any new meta details. So add ?v=1 or &p=19 [something like that]
eg. http://collegers.net/showthread.php?...enter-HOAX?v=1

Otherwise check the meta details using

It doesn't do anything for Search Engine Ranking Position. The most prominent use of Meta description in a page is, It is the text that will be displayed in Search Result near the link. If it is not relevant (other than thread info), users may ignore your page.

I'm no expert but I am pretty sure it's not supposed to do that... Once I reverted my opengraph template my meta tags returned to normal...

I'm using 4.1.10
Same problem here... does anyone got a fix?
Im using 4.2 version.
