TwitterCard and OG on Zoo categories page

TwitterCard and OG on Zoo categories page

Hi Steven,
I'm using Social Link on a 3.5.1 Joomla with Zoo 3.3.17 and CW Social Link 0.3.1 installed.
I can get all metadat, twittercard and OG and each items, that's works great and it is a realy plus :-)
Now what i'm trying is to get that kind of info on Zoo categories pages.
I have tried filling CW tab on the menu link, but i couldn't get anything, and by itself, CW Social doesn't show any twitter nor OG on Zoo Categories pages.
Is there anything to do i missed for that ?
If you could have any suggestion, it will be welcome...

Hi,

Open Graph tags for Zoo categories is quite complicated give me some time to run some tests and see if I can come up with some options.

Cheers,

Steve

OK so I cant do it through the same method as the individual items due to layouts only being applied to Articles and or Authors. I'm now looking into extended my system plugin to see if I can pull in at least the title, description and image of a Zoo category to included with some Open Graph tags.

I will let you know when I have some thing to test ;)

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Steven, thanks a lot for your obstinacy on this topic, that's great!
I'll wait for news about this...
I'm choosing Zoo instead of K2 recently on all my news websites, for differents reasons, CoalaWeb Social LInk is one of them :-)

So change of plan, after doing some testing I have decided the cleanest most reliable way is to use the CoalaWeb menu editor tab to add tag info to a Zoo category.

I have attached an updated version of the system plugin cwmenumeta so grab a copy here and download/extract it and then upload/overwrite the current one found at :

plugins -> system -> cwmenumeta

Then enter the details you want through the menu editor for the Zoo category and the tags should be added.

Let me know how it goes.

PS. I'm also looking into integrating the fallback options from the component for Zoo too.

Thanks,

Steve
