[URGENT] Problem with twitter cards validation tool?


#1

Added meta tags needed for a summary card for my domain getokd.com ( https://www.getokd.com)

<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="ok'd app">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Ok'd is an easy and secure way to enable friends and family to make purchases on your behalf. The app protects your credit card, eliminates hassles of giving cash to others and chasing up change and receipts, and keeps track of approved purchases.">
<meta name="twitter:app:name:iphone" content="Ok'd">
<meta name="twitter:app:id:iphone" content="625677744"> 
<meta name="twitter:app:name:ipad" content="Ok'd">
<meta name="twitter:app:id:ipad" content="625677744">

But keep getting invalid card type error when I try to validate from the validator util. Looks like following in the POST api response received from the server
{“status”:“error”,“url”:“https://www.getokd.com”,“error”:null,“tags”:[]}

Can you please help me debugging this issue? One of our feature launch is blocked because of this.

Hiya, when i try to “Validate and Apply” I get an error that says “http://winningwp.com/ Invalid card type.” I’m lost… help?

Check to ensure that the page you’re validating has a

tag in its content, where [CARD TYPE] is one of summary, summary_large_image, photo, gallery, product, app, or player

We are also having this issue. We have added the meta tags to the head of our pages which have video on them. We run the urls through the validator and get the “Invalid Card Type” message as well. Here is an example of one of our urls that have the Twitter card meta attached:

You need to specify the “twitter:card” tag in your page. For instance:

Thank you for the feedback. If you do an inspect element on that url, you will see I have

I have reviewed the documentation a few times and do not see what it is I am doing wrong :confused:

Thanks again!

I wanted to update with apologies and the solution that I found to the particular problem we were having. Turns out my understanding of how the Twitter Card Validator crawls the meta of the site was off. I was adding my Twitter meta tags after the DOM had loaded via JavaScript using append. In doing this, the Validator sees the page in the state before those meta tags were added, causing it to fail. I was seeing the meta tags using inspect element and assumed that they were in the view:source as well. For our website, I added all Twitter meta tags on the server side, this way they are already there as the DOM loads. Hope this will help someone someday and thanks again! :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing your resolution!

We’ve activated the summary card for http://lacrisisquelapaguenellos.blogspot.com.es/
If you want to use other kinds of Twitter cards (and we know you do), please make another request.

Hi, in this moment my twitter card not working. Please i need you help.

Thanks

Test your cards in the validator - https://dev.twitter.com/docs/cards/validation/validator

You will see that the Title is missing, you need to provide a non-empty twitter:title.
