Problem with sharing in Facebook

Post by erevnitis »

Hello friends!
I see that whatever link from my website I am sharing in Facebook as preview display the title and picture of home page!

This is the link I posted to Facebook. https://uugreece.gr/%CE%B1%CF%81%CE%B8% ... E%BC%CE%BF

Why happen this and how we can correct it?

Thank you!

Hey erevnitis,

here is an example how Gastronomos.gr is dealing with urls:
https://www.gastronomos.gr/syntages/tav ... me/266384/

If you decide to go with this option, you will probably need to create all pages again.
Not sure if changing them in database.js will work.

Go to Settings > Security and Backup website to create a backup of your site, just in case. Also first do a test page, don't work on current pages.

Create new page with title you want your link to look like using Latin letters (for example: "About me", url will look like "about-me"). After that change page title using Greek letters.

Check how your website Open Graph meta (preview for Facebook, Twitter and other platforms) looks here: https://www.opengraph.xyz/

Update for editing database.js (thread carefully, backup database first)

Database location is root data/database.js
Open database.js with text editor.

There are two places where pages title and slug must be edited "menuItems": and "pages":

Here is how "menuItems": looks, Home example:

Code: Select all

"0": {
                "name": "Home",
                "slug": "home",
                "visibility": "show",
                "subpages": {}
            },
And "pages":

Code: Select all

"home": {
            "title": "Home",
            "keywords": "Enter, page, keywords, for, search, engines",
            "description": "A page description is also good for search engines.",
            "content": "<p>Home page content<\/p>\n",
            "subpages": {}
        },
Menu items "slug": "home" must be the same as Pages "home" : {...}

So if I want to replace home with index it would look like this:

Code: Select all

"0": {
                "name": "Home",
                "slug": "index",
                "visibility": "show",
                "subpages": {}
            },

Code: Select all

"index": {
            "title": "Home",
            "keywords": "Enter, page, keywords, for, search, engines",
            "description": "A page description is also good for search engines.",
            "content": "<p>Home page content<\/p>\n",
            "subpages": {}
        },
Now I can replace what title will be for menu and what for page (they can be the same or not):

Menu items:
"name": "Index page", -- this is how it will look inside menu
"slug": "index",

Page:
"index": {
"title": "This is index", -- how it will look inside page
