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