Open Graph Protocol Solution: good choice

I tried all Open Graph expansions, and with all was dissatisfied, they didn’t give possibility to specify to me those parameters which were necessary… This expansion allows to do it very simply, pressing of one button. The sympathetic support service also pleased, I had some questions on adjustment of the program and technical support immediately solved them…

Open Graph Protocol Solution: Excellent Product

I love this product and use it on every site I can at this point. Just recently I came into a problem with it causing tab issues in VM2.0.20b and currently awaiting a reply. The developer tends to reply within an hour and thats great IMHO.

    Excellent component…really present my fb likes as I’d like them to have.

    Got one question though. I also have fb likes on my category blogs. Is there some way that I can get open graph for this too? I really like the plugin data at the articles, but unfortunately I really miss the open graph button at the categories.

    Hope you can help me with that..

    Keep up the good work :-)

      Hi Owen, currently it doesn’t has category OG support. But we are taking your request into consideration and will try to add category support in near future, can not commit any specific new release date. But certainly we will do this.

  2. Very good Product Easy Install and easy to Use
