Using this theme, and Yoast SEO.
Previously, when using another theme, the plugin added this information to <head>
<meta name=”twitter:card” content=”summary”/>
<meta name=”twitter:site” content=””/>
<meta name=”twitter:domain” content=””/>
<meta name=”twitter:creator” content=””/>
<meta name=”twitter:image:src” content=””/> *there could be a number of these lines, depending on the number of images in the post*
<meta name=”twitter:description” content=””/>
<meta name=”twitter:title” content=””/>
<meta name=”twitter:url” content=””/>
With this theme, at first nothing at all was added. Then, when I went into WP settings and picked “home” and “blog” pages (besides doing it in the theme settings, that is), this info appeared in <head>
As you can see, there’s a lot missing now. Is this some known compatibility issue, and/or is there some sort of settings I can do to get more of these values to appear again. It makes thumbnails for links unavailable on Twitter, Tumblr etc.November 17, 2013 at 6:03 am #189753
I’m not sure why some of it are mising but you can manually add it on header.php, find this code:
<meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
Add the twitter meta info manually below.

Yeah, I know. It’s not the end of the world really. I am just the kind who feel something is wrong when something doesn’t work properly, and I am weary about “covering up” non-functional stuff with hardcoding, additional plugins etc. There might be more below the surface. :)
I’ll just wait for next update of Yoast SEO, and see if it solves it.November 18, 2013 at 3:27 pm #190108
No issue that I know of at the moment but with how quickly social stuff has been getting updated recently I can’t really say for sure. If the plugin update doesn’t help we can try looking deeper in to it to see whats going on. It should just be getting hooked into the WordPress code which the theme doesn’t interfere with but there could of course also be something else going on.
