WARN: not validated - but I have cards working for a different page




I got the site http://gingerbread.org.uk validated a while ago, and since upgrading to https I have had trouble.

A twitter card for this page works: https://gingerbread.org.uk/content/2314/We-are-the-1-in-4
But not this page: https://gingerbread.org.uk/content/2322/Maintenance-matters

I cant see how i am to validate from here - our agency has advised I get in touch.



Hey elle - the problem with the second link is basically that there’s no twitter:card markup in the page itself, so there’s nothing for our card crawler to build a card from. I don’t think this is related to your recent switch to https.

To prove this, I did the following (it may look a bit technical, but it shows the problem)

$ curl -A Twitterbot https://gingerbread.org.uk/content/2314/We-are-the-1-in-4 > out.html
$ grep twitter: out.html
    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@gingerbread">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Families come in all shapes and sizes">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="We’re calling on companies to recognise the 1 in 4 families headed by a single parent so they receive a fair and just deal.">
<meta name="twitter:image" content="https://gingerbread.org.uk/uploads/media/1/9861.jpg">

Looks good, but…

$ curl -A Twitterbot https://gingerbread.org.uk/content/2322/Maintenance-matters > out.html
$ grep twitter: out.html

No content in the second case.
