I just wasted 4 hours of my life to find useful plugins that one could use on their websites. I enjoy the internet a lot. You find a bunch of information about whatever you want, and you can find your way through absolutely everything. But sometimes it just gets TOO MUCH, and then you don’t know where to start, or what to ask for!
Well, this time I made it. I am not a developer, nor a designer. But I like to have clean, beautiful pages, which display the correct images and descriptions when I post them on Facebook… Wait, is this so complicated? Yes it is!
I noticed that whenever I try to post a blog post on Facebook, the images taken by Facebook were totally random. Than I found out that there’s this thing called “meta” and “open graph” which fixes this. Now I customized the social media part of my website so good. And not only…
So here it is: my list of must-have plugins for a simple, cute website:
Easy Add Thumbnail
Add Meta Tags
WP Facebook Open Graph protocol (this should not be activated in the same time with “Facebook Like”.
The best of all, I found this article which specifies everything about this issue. And then there’s the Facebook Debugger, which shows you exactly what your website will look like on Facebook and what you should fix with it.
Still working at this part… as soon as I find out some other interesting stuff, I will post them here.
