I purchased the Open Graph and Twitter Card Tags. Installed the plugin. Plugin only asks for your Twitter account names, and does not enable you to edit content with proper Twitter card content. Cannot find any documentation on this plugin.

Hello,
all potential problems with Twitter Card Tags are described in our documentation to which you can find link on JED and in plugin configuration panel.

This plugin automates the process of creating tags. In configuration you can:
- set @username of website,
- set @username of content creator,
- display details about website: twitter:card, twitter:url, twitter:title, twitter:description,
- decide which type of Card you want to use for Single image and Multiple images page: summary, summary_large_image, photo, gallery,
- decide for which components views show those Twitter Card Tags,
- limit images used for tags
- select default image if non was found in current component view
- use default image on home page
- look for images in component buffer with our without extension
- check image minimal size and aspect ratio to meet Twitter requirements

This is a simple system plugin and not advanced component would which allow different settings for each menu item.

I needed a tool that works with Zoo, this one does the trick.
Also support was very helpful in getting it to work.

Had an issue with getting my Joom Gallery pictures to show up correctly when I would post links to Facebook. Installed this and they magically appeared correctly. Slight little issue with picture sizes so I emailed the support and had a new version in less than 24hrs. Could not be happier.
