Why don’t my Twitter Cards show on Twitter?

September 20th, 2015

The Photo, Gallery, and Product Cards were deprecated by Twitter on July 3rd, 2015. NGFB continues to support all current Twitter Card formats, including the Summary, Summary with Large Image, App (exclusive to WPSSO), and Player Cards — in both the Free and Pro versions of NGFB.

The NGFB Pro version supports the Summary, Large Image Summary, Photo, Gallery, Player and Product Cards. The Twitter Card type is selected based on your post/page/custom-post-type content:

  • Product Card — Product information from an e-commerce plugin.
  • Player Card — An embedded video in the Post / Page content.
  • Gallery Card — A Media Library gallery or NextGEN Gallery shortcode.
  • Photo Card — An Attachment page or NextGEN Gallery ImageBrowser webpage.
  • Large Image Summary Card — An image from the custom Social Settings, Featured, Attached, or NextGEN Gallery singlepic.
  • App Card — Apple Store iPhone / iPad or Google Play App (requires the WPSSO App Meta extension).
  • Summary Card — All other webpages.

For each type card you publish, you can submit a sample URL to Twitter’s Card validation tool.

NGFB Pro automatically creates the required Twitter Card meta tags based on the content of your webpages.

    • Easy Digital Downloads
