Hi Cesar,

We have introduced the Open Graph Tags to provide the functionality for mentioning the images to be shared with facebook and google plus.

We will be release a new version soon with better control over og tags.

For now you can disable the OG Tags from sexybookmark Admin pannel
1)Go to Aditiional Buttons
2)Set "Include the Open Graph Tags?" to No

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks,
Ankur

Hi all.
My problem is that SexyBookmarks create only the image tag for Open Graph (and not all OG tags) and the Wordpress Connect plugin (for the Like button) face this tag. The simplest way should be to deactivate WP Connect and use the Sexybookmarks "Like", but looking at the HTML it says

<!-- Shareaholic Notice: OgTags disabled for all posts -->
<!-- Wordpress Connect meta v1.09-->

<!-- Wordpress Connect meta post v1.09-->

That way, I don't see nor Sexybookmars OG image tag or WP Connect OG tag... I read you are about to create a new version with better control over og tags, I hope this will be very soon because my site customer is so angry for not being able to use Facebook share, any idea before next plugin version? Thank you so much

Sorry, but at last the biggest problem is that I can't see an d use the image (thumbnail) for sharing on Facebook, even if Shareaholic puts the og:image tag. Any idea? Thanks

@kkkri - Can you please disable OG Tags for a single post and check? It seems to be working fine for most of the posts.

Hi Anik.
Many thanks for your reply. I checked again and again when the image doesn't appear for sharing with Facebook. It happens when some code is before image (i.e.code for bold character or anything else) and Facebook doesn't recognize the og image tag Sexybookmarks adds.Now I carefully insert posts and images and check if there is something strange in HTML. The problem is that FB doesn't correct the image if something changes, it always has the first image inserted (even if wrong) or no image if there wasn't any.So now it's ok with OG Tags enabled, even if Sexybookmarks creates only OG Tag image, why not the other tags too (title, name, content and so on)? Are you going to add this functionality? Can you kindly tell me where to modify the language of the icons and the alignment of Google +1 in Firefox, because in IE works well. Some more space between the two rows should be fine. Sorry but I didn't find where to change all these things. Thank you so much.

@kkri - We're looking into releasing language-specific buttons soon. It's been on our agenda for a while. For the alignment issue, I can suggest try using the left alignment so that there is enough space for all three icons to fit. Else you could always drag to reorder the icons.

Hi Anik. I didn't think the language was an issue as your over 1,300,000 users! Hope to see it solved soon because the site is an Italian magazine for the Italian market, the most, and the customer wants only Italian descriptions in it. For the alignment it's a pity not to be able to put things as for the site style. May I separate someway the two rows of icons, too close each other?
