Posted on 2011-05-08

Hi experts,

we have build an online radio, using wonderful BBQ plugin.

My problem is that, since facebook requires
<meta property="og:title" content=".." />
<meta property="og:description" content=".." />
<meta property="og:image" content=".." />

Open in new window

but bbq doesn't allow us to change the head section of the page (for each page created by our cms), i cannot share my pages with its title, description and image (i always get the title and image of the homepage).

is there a way to share pages in facebook without using meta tags?

thanks in advance

    	<meta name="description" content="<%= CategorySporText %>" />
    	<link rel="image_src" href="<%= PageShareUrl %>" />

    How are you testing on the local box on Facebook domain.
    You may need to configure your webhost to trusted domain.
    I didn't have problem using FBML, JavaScript and Flash connection for my projects
