Dewey's Open Graph Helper

Description

A simple plugin for adding open graph tags to WordPress sites. Focuses more on theme and plugin developers. No admin interface (yet), everything is configured via code. (I’ll write a better description when I can think of one…)

Installation

  1. Upload the wad_open_graph directory to /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. add_post_type_support for ogtags to the different post types you want to enable open graph tags for
  4. Customize the open graph settings by using the og_tags filter

FAQ

How do I use this?

After you have installed the plugin, the plugin will automatically add open graph tags to your site’s front page. og:site_name and og:title will both be set to your site’s name, og:type will be “website”, og:url is the site’s url and og:description is the WP site description.

After you’ve enabled support for each of the post type(s), you begin to see open graph tags appear in those post type page <head> tags.

On post types that support ‘ogtags’, the plugin will add og tags for og:site_name (your blog’s title), og:title (the post title), og:url (the post permalink), og:description (the post excerpt) and og:type is automatically set to “article”. If your post has a thumbnail image, that will be set as the og:image.

Can I customize the og tags?

You can!

You can customize all of the different posts you’re supporting using the og_tags filter. Also, if you’re supporting multiple post types and only want to customize a particular post type, you can use the [POST_TYPE]_og_tags filter, where you can replace [POST_TYPE] with post or page (or whatever the post_type is) to customize the content of a particular post type.
