Social Web, Social Share

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.

Ease of use

Simple to install and activate.


Great. I found out about the plugin while searching in the Joomla Community Forum, asked a question and the author responded within the hour

I used this to: Making Facebook Open Graph shares work on my site Media Helping Media. http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org

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...

A tiny content plugin that create a few different sized images on the fly and also update the markup to use the well established and supported HTML5 image tag srcset Which types of images are supported? Only jpg and png Does it also take care of the intro and full image of an article? No. Are there any precautions? YES! Because the plugin creates the images on the fly if a user saves a new article then the first time a visitor visits that page the load time can be very long. An easy work around is that the creator saves the article with some elevated permissions and then visits the page (granted they have permissions) and then re-edit the article to restore the preferred permissions. Also if you already have a live site, it's highly recommended to create the extra images locally (eg use some browser plugin to visit all your pages in your sitemap). Where are those images stored? The extra images are placed in /media/cached-resp-images Installation Install this plugin then enable it and you're set. Nothing to configure! Is there a way to clean the cached images? Sure: just ftp, ssh or use your host control panel and remove the folder named cached-res-images inside the folder media. CAUTION: Performing this action will force the plugin to regenerate all the required image sizes for each image which will effectively increase geometrically the loading time for each page delivered for the first time!!!
