What does it do?¶
This Extensions enables you to easily get control of what is shown on facebook if you like or share your page.
The Result on facebook;
The input dialog on facebook:
The new tab inside TYPO3 page records:
Just install this extension and it's ready to run.
You can define your own information for facebook, or use the fallback: The meta information. If you don't define special information for facebook in the new tab, the extension will use your defined meta information and the page title.
Install the extension and use the facebook debugging tool to check if it's working: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug. Just paste a link of your frontend and check wether facebook is gathering your information. Please notice that facebook will cache this result. If you make changes, you have to wait or check with another URL.
Another way is to take a look at the generated source code. The <html> should be extended with two attributes:
1 <html xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
And you should see the generated open graph tags:
1 <meta property="og:title" content="Welcome to TYPO3"/> 2 <meta property="og:url" content="http://dev.layne-obserdia.de/get-started/"/> 3 <meta property="og:description" content="This website is a default website setup for TYPO3. You can use it to demonstrate the basic features of the TYPO3 Content Management System, but you are also welcome to use it as a basis for your own website projects. Please have a look at how it works and how it is structured. In building this package, we have tried to combine a lot of best practices. Feel free to use these structures and use elements of it for your own way of working."/> 4 <meta property="og:updated_time" content="1335510714"/>
