Easy Digital Downloads

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 Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) addon for NGFB Pro provides the following functionality:

  • The product page includes Open Graph / Rich Pin meta tags for the product description, price, currency, and custom / featured product images.
  • The product page includes Twitter Card meta tags for the description, and labels (in order, up to a maximum of 4) for the price, currency, bundled items, and any product categories / tags.
  • Support for the EDD ‘download_tag’ taxonomy, so product hashtags can be added to the Open Graph, Pinterest, and Twitter Card descriptions.
  • The checkout page is assigned a static description value (‘Checkout Page’) to prevent unwanted text in meta tag description fields.
