Yes, I would make the social sharing a admin controllable feature.
Thanks :)
We have added social sharing to the feature set. Due to the major change in feature set, we have created a new extension. See it here => viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2343081

I uninstalled the orginal extension
deleted the data then deleted the extension
I uploaded the new version and enabled it.
I see the admin section of the extension.
My question is how do I get a post to facebook??
when I do a test post I see only the post on my system what do I do from there???
This extension only creates the meta tags required for Facebook and Twitter. It does not include a posting function. I am looking at various extensions to see if I can find one. If not, I might add the functionality to this extension.
Ok I will watch this extension closely
I personally have no idea about the meta tags and what they do and hope you find what you need to update the extension
We have added the features you requested. Due to the features radically changing, we created a new extension. See it here => viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2343081

Is this really the case? For my wordpress blog I have a default image set in case there's no image in the post I share. That is the way I would like my phpBB site to work as well. A random image sounds like it could turn out very strange a lot of the time :) But with the option to turn it off it's all good.

But there is no way of setting a default image you say? Like when I share the forum index page?

Thanks,
Claes
We have released a new extension. The new extension supports a default image. Please go to => viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2343081

Thank you.

Hello,
do you know how the image is choosen by the extension or by Facebook?
I made a message with an image (attached file) after two lines of text. Then, about 10 lines after I added a second image.
In Facebook, the second image appears.
Is it because of the size? (The first image is 718 x 793 px, the second one is 450 x 255 px).

Hi,
It is a great extension, good job! :mrgreen:

I have a request: is it possible to share facebook botton for all posts?
I need that each utent can share their posts on Facebook.

Using this extension i also noted that the image (attached file) of the post is not available on facebook.
Why?
Have I make misstakes?

Which specific file does this extension make changes to?

Is it ok to use this extension while using your other extension too (Social Sharing w/Dyanmic Opengraph Tags)?

Can we have a default image that will be showned when the topic does not have one?

I mean change the part of the code that inserts a random image for a fixed one, where should i search for that?
