Introduction

Lately Facebook implied a maximum amount on the pages that their scrapper will get.
This might bring blank shared posts on Facebook, if the page is bigger than 40kb and compression (Gzip) is enabled.
This plugin corrects that by disabling gzip, only for Facebook requests.

Using only server-side GZip was half the story but with this quick-fix plugin, Facebook Graph works as intended with Joomla GZip activate.



Until we get a proper fix for this problem, i reccomend this little plugin to all users of J3.x!



Many thanks to developer!

You need more control over the compressed output of Joomla! ? Look no further. By default this plugin disables the gzip compression of the html output of your Joomla! site for the User Agents of Facebook and LinkedIn (those are the BOTs that scan your site everytime someone posts a link to Facebook or LinkedIn). Also you can specify easily your own User Agents (BOTs most of the time) that feel happier with plain uncompressed html! The Bots of Facebook and LinkedIn have a cap on the size that they scrap, which in many cases have undesirable effects with compressed pages. Install, activate and forget about it...
