I added some share buttons to the View Post page of my UNA site, and at first they were working properly posting the og image and the og title of the post to Facebook and Twitter.  Then later the post title stopped working on the share feature but the post image does post to Facebook and Twitter.  So what I see now is the header image of the post and some of the content text in the body of the post.  Can anyone suggest what might be the problem?

    • Hello Dannie Jackson !

      Well, the code of the post entry contains the of tags like "Title" and "Description", if the header image was uploaded - the image too. So it seems the problem isn't on UNA's end...

      • I was trying to think of something I might have done to the page, such as change the page name?  As far as I know the page name is "view post."  I can't image what else I could have done to change the way the page is suppose to behave?

        • Bu default, if the post has the title "Post 1" then the page title will be "Post 1" too.

          I have been using UNA since November and it has been a learning experience, since then I have tried all of the features and looked over the options I have in terms of page creation, layout and block or in page modules or application blocks, for html, raw and custom scripts. I realized that UNA has a dual application for use, one naturally being a social media site and the other being an online magazine or journal of user driven and defined content. In realizing the later I have developed that idea along pretty well with turning all of the various post viewing pages into website pages with sidebar content such as links and ads, as well as a search bar. So those pages have become a public access section of webpages with post and articles, and ads content.

          I made a custom page for the Featured content and gave it the name of the magazine section of my UNA site, this becoming the magazine home page. And I used an .htaccess file to customize a short url to the page further down in the site. I gave the custom url the name of the magazine.

          I chose an unique name so that it would come up on the search engines at the top of the heap which is does at Google, where it is the first listing, plus I wrote about it in articles at BeforeItsNews and created a profile name for the site at LinkedIn. These listings also come up under my top level listing so this helped in SEO and getting to the top fast. I expect to remain at the top since there are hardly any mention of the name I chose anywhere on the Internet.

          My only problem I have encountered is that with several listed means of adding injections of code to the head, body and footer, none of them work?

            • Head Injections did work for me, but i found out the code needs to include the open/close tags. Per example, any styling needs to be declared inside of the < style > tag, any scripting code needs to be declared inside of the < script > tag...

              • But what errors did you meet during the attempt to insert your code to the Injections->Header? BTW - some servers don't allow to add the Javascript code via web-forms. It is set up via modesecurity settings. So in this case, it's better to contact our hosting support about it.

                • Yes, correct, as this section may have the CSS and Javascript addons, you need to insert the correct tags by yourself.

                    Well I like the UNA 12 layout, it looks more like conventional social media but with its own distinct look and features.  Memcache seems to be working the site does load faster with no lags in loading pages.  And the Studio layout is better.  The Profile Stats column or rather the homepage navigation menu on the left side of the news feed is a real good idea, it helps members to find their way around, I added some custom links to this menu such as a chat room section and a News & Info section which is a Wordpress installation I placed inside UNA for my news and user help section.  The chat room section has 8 separate chat rooms but the users can create their own and add their chat room link to their profile.  The chat rooms are HTML5 chat room clients.  Which is more or less a custom feature I thought up.  Some things I did in UNA 11 were to add broadcast pages for select broadcasters on the Internet, and with those broadcast plugins, I added a comments section which I made using other chat instances embedded into the page.  The broadcast pop out so the users can navigate the comments and watch the broadcast.

                    Yesterday to the Profile Stats menu I added a top link to a new users guide that over views the site features and functions with quick explanations on how to get started using them, I want the members to know how the TinyMCE Post editor works and how it can help them make more creative post content.  I know that not everyone who uses lets say Facebook or Twitter knows how to use a text editor, and so I want to introduce to my new members a way to get started on all of the features of the site, Discussions, Channels, etc.

                    • It has definitely become faster. Our site got even faster when we upgraded to HTTP/2. They have done a great job Team UNA

                      • Being that it loads faster it makes configuration and set up of the site and modifications to the menus etc allot faster to do.  Learning my way around on UNA 11 helped this time around to set up 12.  And the slight changes in the layout and look are nice.  I believe when I start getting a bunch of members in now that they will like the place.  Got to do allot of advertising to do that.  People talk about leaving Facebook but I do not see them following through on it.

                        • Yes I just tried http2 with 11.04 and it bring 40%-60% shorter loading times, amazing, definetely will be even faster with 12!

                          I was interested in the way that the old original MySpace worked back in the day when we could use html and css to customize our user profiles, and for the life of me why MySpace overhauled itself and did away with that I can not understand since that is still to this day an interesting concept.  I later found Dolphin and like the fact that you could do that with Dolphin, however I settled on UNA and it is my hope that someone will consider adding to UNA the EVO theme concept, even the EVO default background.  I believe that in doing so, UNA will become something that many who are interesting in alternatives to Facebook and Twitter will want to make use of.  UNA with its Rich Text Editor for Post is what I consider to be its strength in terms of such platforms as GAB Social and Parler, which can not compare. Now as for Design templates, I know that UNA has the ability for me the Admin to do some stuff and provide a selection of themes for user to select, but I still like the idea of the users being able to customize their profiles.  Also, Dolphin allowed us to use animated gif images for the background but UNA will not animate those images, I have tried that.  I hope someone considers what I am saying, and if you come up with something let me know.

                            • Me myself I believe that if someone really wanted to do something like this then create a browser extension, or use one that's already created and add your own html and css styling, the browser & extension should then store the cache of the changes on browser then display it as needed, so far I've seen such actions being done by a lot of small time developers that want custom Discord or Flarum designs 😉

                                • Thank you I just saw this listed in the Latest Modules section of my Studio, thank you for creating it and it does what Dolphin did pretty much and I would recommend this to anyone.  Now this pretty much brings back what I like about Dolphin.  So thank you again.  This is what I was looking for.  I am going to check it out now.

                                  I have been using UNA a month now, doing some work on the look and have numerous selectable designs for the users.  I have some folk beta testing it with their user accounts.  The recent updates with I think of around 83 updates I hope solved some problems before my users found them.  I think the updates coming in version 12 will even be more interesting and await their release.  With the recent social media purge on Twitter and Facebook I am hoping to get people to come on board and try UNA out since I believe they will find it provides more bang for the buck so to speak than platforms such as Parler or MeWe.

                                    • This is just one of the looks I have for my site Dansgate Social Media.  I know some people like the Dark Facebook theme, and the Dark Twitter theme, which Parler seems to like also.  But I also have some light and  elegant themes as well as holiday themes for the users to select.  Here you can see I have adjusted the height of the cover photo to be consistent with what people are accustomed to seeing on other platforms.  This black theme was something I compared to Facebook to create.  The blocks are slightly lighter and have a light blue boarder.
