Perfect Open Graph Tags

July 9th, 2013

Problem: you share link to Joomla website on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ and it can’t find correct image. HERE IS A SOLUTION: This plugin adds invisible Open Graph and Card tags, so that social platform would know which image to display. Works with all components.

– adds Open Graph tags with images and page details
– adds Twitter Card tags
– search for all images in component (not whole page)
– select default image when no image was found
– select default image for home page
– works with all installed components
– filter components for which plugin should run
– checks if image meets minimal Facebook requirements
– debug mode which displays added Open Graph tags

To check which images are inside component add at then end of page URL: &tmpl=component or ?tmpl=component.

Go to download page and try to share it on Facebook status or click Like button and Post to Facebook.

Joomla 2.5, 3.x

This plugin is not a Like button and it does not display any share buttons.


The image must be at least 50px by 50px (though minimum 200px by 200px is preferred) and have a maximum aspect ratio of 3:1. We support PNG, JPEG and GIF formats. You may include multiple images with your page.
