How to configure individual post meta details

Each individual enabled post type in Novashare will have a box located below the editor where you can manually configure the post meta details, add hidden images for Pinterest, hide share buttons, refresh share counts, and disable image pins.

Social media image, title, and description

The social media image, media title, and media description fields are used for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. The recommended image size is 1200 x 630 pixels.

If you use an SEO plugin like Yoast, you typically update this information in your SEO plugin. However, there might be some instances where you still need to manually change these. You first need to confirm that Open Graph meta tags are enabled in Novashare.

Pinterest image

The Pinterest image is what Pinterest uses when someone tries to pin your post or page. You can upload an image specifically designed for Pinterest. The recommended image size is 1000 x 1500 pixels.

Pinterest hidden images

Within the Novashare post meta, you can upload hidden images that will be used when sharing to Pinterest. These are delayed from loading until an individual interacts with the page, meaning they won’t harm the performance of the site.

Pinterest description

The Pinterest description is mainly used for internal search on Pinterest and allows for up to 500 characters. This will not necessarily be visible as Pinterest prioritizes Open Graph tags used by your SEO plugin or the social media description in Novashare.
