Introduction

Virtuemart Products Display, Facebook integration, Facebook Share, Search & Indexing, Site Management

Open Graph Protocol enables you to integrate your Web pages into the social graph and VM OG Meta Tag Plugin enables you to integrate your Joomla and VirtueMart website into the Open Graph Protocol. By adding Open Graph tags to the of your website, you can classify and describe the content you attach Like buttons to. This allows Facebook to present the right image, category, and other information about your site when Likes of your content appear in news feed stories and user profiles. The type of tags you choose also define the functionality of your Like buttons. Including Open Graph tags on your Web page, makes your page equivalent to a Facebook Page. This means when a user clicks a Like button on your page, a connection is made between your page and the user. Your page will appear in the "Likes and Interests" section of the user's profile, and you have the ability to publish updates to the user. Your page will show up in the same places that Facebook pages show up around the site (e.g. search), and you can target ads to people who like your content. The structured data you provide via the Open Graph Protocol defines how your page will be represented on Facebook.

Most of the VirtueMart websites are using Facebbok Like button widget in their websites. But when a person click on the like button you need to pass correct structured data to Facebook so that your product information with image gets displayed to the user's timeline. So it is just not about liking your page but let people know what exactly they like. It brings greater business possibility to your online store and help retain customers. And the only way to pass correct information to Facebook is through OGP tags. That's exactly what this plugin does within a minute.

It not only take care of the VirtueMart pages but also picks correct images for your standard Joomla page including Articles on the go. Therefore you can also use the plugin in any Joomla! site which is not using VirtueMart.

Installation and configuration of the plugin is very easy. Just install and enable it from your Plugin Manager. You can also pick specific site type, global image etc from the settings area.

We have installed this plugin on a demo site. Check the source code of the site to see the OGP Meta Tags on any page.

It's a FREE product can be downloaded and used by everyone without any limitation.

Support is available only for Club Members through our Forum.

Wrong url used

It does put Open Graph meta tags in, but the url is not correct. The url for the link used by Facebook will go to the correct article.

Ease of use

Easy to install and setup. Passes wrong canonical link to Facebook and thus you get the wrong image displayed in your posts.

Support

Paid support for a free extension is a trap when the extension does not work as advertised.

Documentation

Does not contain a manual for use. Documentation link goes to download page.

I used this to: Was attempting to use this so articles in Joomla posted the appropriate images and links to customize each Open Graph card rather than a simple default one for the entire website.

Average

I used this to: Nothing, since the def site cannot fetch it.
Owner's reply: The plugin works perfectly without problem. I am sure you must be seeing an old cached report on Facebook. If you check a page on Facebook it cached the data until you ask it to clear it manually and wait for purging. If Facebook cache is not cleared, you will not see any changes after installing or uninstalling VM OG Meta Tag plugin.
