Social Meta Settings – Individual Page/Post Settings

Individual Page/Post Settings

The Social Meta Module in All in One SEO Pack also adds a Social Settings tab to the All in One SEO Pack box on every Post, Page and Custom Post Type (where enabled).  This box lets you control the social meta for that Page or Post.

Title

The Title field lets you set the OG:Title for the Page or Post.  If you do not specify a title then All in One SEO Pack will use the SEO Meta Title you set on the Main Settings tab.  If you haven’t set an SEO Meta Title then All in One SEO Pack will use the title of the Page or Post.

Description

The Description lets you set the OG:Description for the Page or Post.  If you do not specify a description then All in One SEO Pack will use the SEO Meta Description you set on the Main Settings tab.   If you haven’t set an SEO Meta Description then All in One SEO Pack will use the Excerpt if you’ve checked the Autogenerate Descriptions box in the main Social Meta screen (see above) and if you have not entered an Excerpt then All in One SEO Pack will use the first 160 characters of the Page or Post content.

If you have not checked the Autogenerate Descriptions box in the main Social Meta screen (see above) and you have not set an SEO Meta Description for the Page or Post then no OG:Description will be displayed.

Image

Image is where you can select the image that will be used as the OG:Image for the Page or Post.  All in One SEO Pack will display any image that is in the content of the Page or Post, any image that is attached to the Page or Post, or the Featured Image if it has been set.  Select the radial next to the image you want to use.

If you don’t select an image then the Default Image you set on the Social Meta screen (see above) will be used.

The OG:Image should be a minimum size of 600 pixels wide by 315 pixels high.  However, Facebook recommends that you use images that are at least 1200 pixels with by 630 pixels high for the best display on retina and high-resolution screens.  See their documentation for more details.

Custom Image

You can use the Upload Image button to upload an image that you want to use as the OG:Image or you can just paste the URL for the image file into the field provided.

Specify Image Width / Specify Image Height

You can use these fields to enter the image width and height in pixels that you want your OG:Image to be.  The OG:Image should be a minimum size of 600 pixels wide by 315 pixels high.  However, Facebook recommends that you use images that are at least 1200 pixels with by 630 pixels high for the best display on retina and high-resolution screens.  See their documentation for more details.

Custom Video

You can use this to add the URL for a video which will be output in the OG:Video tag. Social media networks may display this video when you page or post is shared on their network. When you enter a URL in this field two additional fields will appear for Specify Video Width and Specify Video Height, you can use these fields to set the width and height in pixels for the video.

Specify Video Width / Specify Video Height

You can use these fields to enter the video width and height in pixels that you want your OG:Video to be.

Facebook Object Type

You can use the Facebook Object Type drop down to set the OG:Type for the Page or Post.  The default will be whatever you set on the Social Meta screen for this content type (see above).

Note: There is a standardized list of Open Graph Object Types.  A complete list can be found here – Open Graph Object Types.  It is possible to generate errors that may impact how your content appears on certain social networking sites if you select an inappropriate Object Type.

Facebook Debug

The Facebook Debug button launches the Facebook Debugger Tool and populates the URL of your post or page in the URL field. You can then use this tool to troubleshoot how your post or page will appear on Facebook, check for errors or warnings, and fetch the Open Graph meta to clear any cached information Facebook may have for you post/page.

NOTE: All in One SEO Pack forces Facebook to invalidate cached information about your post or page whenever you publish or update a post or page. This is done via the Facebook Graph API and should ensure that you see current scraped information when you click the Debug button.

Article Section

Here you can enter a category name which represents the section of your website to which the content belongs.

Article Tags

Here you can enter a list of keywords just like you would use Tags in WordPress to tag your content.

Twitter Card Type
