Open Graph protocol for improved sharing via Facebook etc

Post by Marcus Wendel »

It would be very nice to have support for the Open Graph protocol in phpBB 3.1 to improve the results when people share links to forum posts via e.g. Facebook.

I currently use the below og meta tags but I have two areas where I would like to see an improvement:
* Description: should be the first 140 characters of the post.
* Image: Should list the first attachment with the default og image as fall back.

Code: Select all

<meta property="og:title" content="{TOPIC_TITLE} &bull; {SITENAME}"/>
<meta property="og:image" content="mydomain/images/logo-og.jpg" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="{SITENAME}"/>
<meta property="og:description" content="{FORUM_DESC}"/>
