Twitter cards for Wordpress.com Blog


#1

Is the an alternate method to add twitter cards to a site. The Blogs on basic Wordpress.com cannot modify/add Meta-tags?


#2

We support wordpress.com blogs for cards, test a lin from your site using https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/preview you will see how it will render. Then apply for your blog at https://dev.twitter.com/form/participate-twitter-cards.

Unfortunately, Worpdress.com do not allow basic Blog users to add Meta-tags (see http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/really-struggling-with-word-press-how-to-add-meta-tags?replies=10) ; thus, I have no link to test. That’s why I asked whether there is an alternate way.

Twitter Cards are supported by default by Wordpress.com, what is your blog address? Paste the link to one of your blog post on https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/preview and see what happens :slight_smile:

Ah, I see, I think. One of my Blog entries is http://geeksretreat.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/bios-problems/. When submitted the card does display in the test link. Does that mean the meta tags are optional?


#6

Scrap that! I now understand what is happening. Wordpress.com is generating the required meta-tag for me. I assumed I would have to add these manually.

Glad it worked for you. Sorry if it was not clear from my first message.

If I have purchased a domain which I have, so my blog is now rucktales.com and not rucktales.wordpress.com can I still get twitter cards? I’m desperate for them as they make such a difference!

I was having trouble adding Twitter cards to by WordPress Blog, and i finally found the solution here -

We have options to either “Hard code” or add a plugin.

Our website is also a wordpress site. We want to have summery for each of our posts/links without creating/applying for a new card for each post/link. We tried our best but always shows the error “Unable to render card preview” and “Invalid card type.”… Our site is http://tribalpost.pk/. please help us. thanks
