How do I add Facebook OpenGraph meta tags for attachments in the header for a custom theme?
How do I add Facebook OpenGraph tags in the header when the header has already been called, and the values I need to add are obtained in the body? This is a highly customized theme (which I did not create).
Here is the
image.php file which contains the attachment page for an image:
<div class="posted-att"> <?php echo wp_get_attachment_image($attachment_id,'large');
I don’t know where
$attachment_id is set. It’s not set in
image.php. It’s set in several places in
wp-includes but I’m not sure which ones are relevant.
I tried adding the following to
<?php wp_head(); ?> <?php echo 'attachment id = ' . $attachment_id; ?> <?php if ($attachment_id != null) : // Facebook OpenGraph $shareImage = wp_get_attachment_url($attachment_id); ?> <meta property="og:image" content="<?=$shareImage?>" /> <?php endif; ?>
I also found this http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-add-facebook-open-graph-meta-data-in-wordpress-themes/, but my posts don’t have featured images. I’m trying to share specific attached images.
