Can you help me? I'm not sure why the redesign of my site affected the Twitter card?


#1

Can you help me figure out why my Twitter card looks like this?

I recently redesigned my site and rely on a plugin to tweet my posts (which are admittedly a bit complex in structure). Is there a way to fix this?


#2

I’m not seeing the same thing - I’m seeing an error that refers to the fact that you don’t have a twitter:description field in your page.


#3

Thank you. I fixed the earlier problem and the card looks good for a generic card.

But is there a way to configure things so that the card is a card for my Wordpress posts? I haven’t been able to figure out how to do this.


#4

Do each of your posts have relevant markup in the header?


#5

Yes. But there is a bit of a trick, that I’ve seen other website do with their twitter cards. The post URL points to a different site but I want the card URL to go to my site via post id number such as https://metacurity.com/#279836


#6

Can you provide an example Tweet.


#7

Are these cards or are they promoted Tweets with ad cards.


#8

No, not promoted Tweets. Here is an example Tweet of what I’d like to do - https://twitter.com/Techmeme/status/799692766372655104

OK, so the card validator worked earlier today but is no longer working, even for a generic tweet (but I would ideally like to do the per post tweet as I described in my most recent reply). Is there a user-friendly, perhaps non-computer geek, guide I might study to help me with any of this? I’ve spent all day figuring out Twitter problems.


#10

Can you provide an example Tweet and URL please


#11

I’m utterly lost at this point. I provided a URL for my site earlier at https://www.metacurity.com earlier. I also provided a URL for what I’m trying to achieve which is https://twitter.com/Techmeme/status/799692766372655104

In the absence of a user-friendly guide, is there a plug-in you would recommend I try?


#12

To me you should:

  • update twitter:card meta tag with summary_large_image not just summary as it is now
  • add description
  • look for unclosed <div> tag on your website - as those markup tags Twitter is displaying shouldn’t be there

Btw these are complete Twitter tags (I took it from one of my sites), just for your reference :slight_smile:

<!-- Twitter Card -->
<meta name='twitter:card' content="summary_large_image" />
<meta name='twitter:site' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:creator' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:title' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:description' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:url' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:image:src' content="" />
<meta name='twitter:image:alt' content="cover image" />
<meta name='twitter:domain' content="" />
<meta name="twitter:label1" value="" />
<meta name="twitter:data1" value="" />
<meta name="twitter:label2" value="" />
<meta name="twitter:data2" value="" />

Just a small note, the twitter:label and twitter:data fields are not required by any current Twitter cards (they are from the deprecated product cards that were withdrawn ~18 months ago).
