Hello and thank you for developing such a great platform/ theme. Sure. I could suggest a number of changes, and talk a bit about the frustrations inherent on learning to use a new tool, bu the truth is that the results speak for themselves: your theme and engine, has allowed me to make a beautiful, great-looking site for my fiends at http://www.mambocasting.com .
I have a simple reques for feedback/ comments on how to improve the site, in particular the “clients” area- the company has hundreds of these, and I want to display them differently, as well as a better way to display the videos…. if anyone can suggest good solutions or plug ins that would be very much appreciated.
I do have an immediate request, and that is that, whenever I share the site, it is randomly pulling pictures and non-related text to display ion other sites, say facebook or twitter. Can anyone tell me how can I set a set text and photo to display whenever I place the link to the main page?
Thanks!January 21, 2014 at 11:02 am #212695
I suggest this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ – it enables you to set an preview image + custom desription text for facebook and google plus and you can use the “social” tab ( http://www.clipular.com/c/5678826713513984.png?k=2EpKGdnQl0mtbk_vvn_O5O2cfYY ) to change it for each entry (posts, pages, etc.).

Thank you for the tip, however…
I have now tried three plugins:
and none of them fixes this problem.

I’m not sure which plugin you use at the moment but it adds following code to the head section
<meta name="generator" content="WPSSO 1.22.1G" /> <meta property="og:locale" content="en_US" /> <meta property="og:site_name" content="Mambo Local" /> <meta property="og:url" content="http://mambocasting.com/" /> <meta property="og:title" content="Mambo Local" /> <meta property="og:description" content="This is a Page excerpt. It will be displayed for search results" /> <meta property="og:type" content="article" /> <meta property="article:published_time" content="2013-04-04T23:13:40+00:00" /> <meta property="article:modified_time" content="2014-01-22T19:52:43+00:00" /> <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image" content="http://mambocasting.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Background-1-2-1200x630.jpg" /> <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image:height" content="630" /> <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image:width" content="1200" />
and uses this image http://mambocasting.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Background-1-2-1200×630.jpg for the preview image. I suggest to use Yoast SEO – then go to SEO > Social, tick the “Add Open Graph meta data” checkbox, login as facebook admin and then set the description + image. Afterwards save the settings. Make sure no other seo plugins are activated otherwise they might conflict with Yoast.
