Important Announcement

Subscriptions are currently suspended!

Unfortunately due to COVID 19 all the United States Application Support Centers (ASC) have been closed which has prevented the timely renewal of my work authorization. As a result I will be suspending the sale of all subscriptions until further notice. The suspension only affects new subscriptions and doesn't affect current subscriptions or new releases. Support for both Core and Pro versions will continue as usual. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Facebook Sharing Guide

Trying to get Facebook to share the correct information?

Facebook Sharing Guide

I get a lot of questions about how and what gets shared when a Facebook button gets clicked so I thought I would put together a check list to make sure you are getting the most out of your share buttons.

When you click a share button a series of mystical things happen in the background attempting to determine what information should be included when sharing a particular page. The hard part is making sure we have the important pieces of the puzzle ready to go before the button get pressed thus ensuring the shared information is as accurate as possible.

It isn't always obvious what we need to check to ensure this process goes smoothly or how to fault find issues that may arise which is where this guide comes in. It covers the general process of sharing content with Facebook along with some Joomla specific information and a few Tips to get you up and running quickly and easily.
