Open Graphite

Description

Open Graphite lets you control how your WordPress content is viewed when shared on social media.

Typically when one of your pages is shared on social media (Facebook for example), the platform will use the first image and text it can find on the page. This is usually not ideal and often truncates the content into something nonsensical, resulting in the page being less likely to be engaged with.

Open Graphite solves this problem, by allowing you to customise the image, title and description of any of your pages that are shared on social media, all without compromising the original content.

How to use

For the homepage…

  • Go to Open Graphite (admin side menu)
  • Set your homepage title, description, image and object type
  • Enter a Facebook app ID (optional)
  • Enter a Twitter username (optional)
  • Choose a Twitter card type
  • Select which post types to enable for

For posts and pages…

  • Create a new post or page (or edit an existing one)
  • Scroll down to the Open Graphite metabox
  • Enter your desired title, description, image and object type

Premium Support

While the free version of Open Graphite is supported in the WordPress support page, one-on-one priority support is given to Open Graphite Pro license holders.

Open Graphite Pro has additional features, such as:

  • The ability to use with additional custom post types
  • Previews for Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin
  • Specify automatic defaults for titles, descriptions, featured images and object types
  • Open Graph content indicators
  • Limit the number of characters for titles and descriptions (prevent your titles and descriptions getting truncated)
  • Additional open graph options
  • Significant discounts on selected Rocket Apps products

Been using it for months now, and it works as in the description.

I don't know if they consider it a feature or a bug, or just a reason to upgrade to the pro version, but it sends the wrong OG data to FB. I shared a post about a week or so ago, and it showed fine. I shared a post today, similar in theme but totally different URL, title, description -- instead, OG sent the same info to FB as the last time, and the debugger tool on FB found tons of errors in the page. So my post which last week was about what if you could teleport anywhere in the world showed in the preview again this week even though the post this week was about a totally different title and topic (hypotheticals about war). Disabled the plugin, everything works fine again. Pass...
