Open Graph Help Please

Post by Bikerdave » Sat Jul 04, 2020 2:59 pm

This may be a stupid question but is there a way of setting Open Graph Titles, Images and Descriptions etc by Article? I would like to control what Facebook shows with Open Graph by setting specific information and image by article.

I have been using Phoca Open Graph but as far as I can see this and other Open Graph extensions set the Open Graph information based on site information and there is no way to customise the information by article.

I am thinking particularly about setting a the OG image for a specific article to an image that is not actually in the article.

Any advice or helpful pages of information will be gratefully received.

Thanks

Hi, yes I did, It sounded like what I want but it didn't appear to do anything and there is no support or documentation at the website https://obs.one/

I found this video https://youtu.be/wVzOG1EvqZ8 where the author of the plugin describes how to make it work but after 2 hours I still cannot figure out why the plugin does not actually work for me.
