Sharing to Social Media
Currently when sharing any forum post to a social media site like Facebook, no opengraph info is shown or pulled. Is this by design? Can we force meta info?

Am I understanding correctly, that you want to add OpenGraph related tags to the
You can add head tags, by adding
<head>...</head>to the very top of a Talkyard page, example:
<head> <title>Page title</title> <meta name="description" content="Page description ..."> <meta property="og:title" content="Page title" /> </head> And here goes the page text, as usual. This'll be inserted into the correct <body><div ...><div...><article><div ...> tag.
Only certain tags are considered, namely
<meta>, and only some attributes, namely
name— and that's all that's needed, for OpenGraph?
(Note to self: Here's the code: https://github.com/debiki/talkyard/blob/e58e..../app/debiki/ReactJson.scala#L1102)
You'd do this "manually" (i.e. type
<head><meta ...>) for each page. Is that an okay approach? Or would you prefer something more automatic somehow, and how would that work and what would it do :- )
