OPTIMUS Mod And TinyPortal
« on: June 28, 2019, 05:31:47 AM »
Hi guys, I don't know where else to put this. Please move if necessary  O0

GREAT NEWS!

Optimus is fully functional for posting both SMF topics and TinyPortal Articles on Twitter and Facebook.

Bugo worked several days on this to get it working properly for everybody. I made a donation to thank him for his hard work. This mod helps IMMENSELY with search engine optimization. Without it my site was virtually unknown. Now with the social media optimization it's even better. I strongly encourage anybody who can use this to also make a donation, it's a GREAT mod and I'm so happy it works entirely with TinyPortal now.  :D :D :D

Hi @rjen I'm using 2.2. You don't see any downloads yet because he just added it to the mod site this morning. He sent me the new package directly for testing. After we confirmed everything worked as designed he added it to the mod site for public use.

Just gave it a try on my Guitarist Guild site.  Shared a BBC article, This one, https://guitaristguild.com/index.php?page=amplitube-4

and it picked up the first image just fine, but it seems to be posting the bbcode from the content as well. Was this tested with bbc articles?

Hi Mick, all of my articles are html. I don't use the WYSIWYG editor or BBC at all so unfortunately that wasn't tested.

Thanks,  thought that might be the case.

I did post in the support thread as you've seen, wonder if Bugo can fix it for this scenario, I use BBC articles a lot. 

Apart from that it seems to work ok.  ;)

I saw @rjen posted about php articles doing weird stuff. I have no clue how Bugo figures out the OG Meta stuff but it's strange how it works for HTML but not BBCode or PHP. Did you guys try emptying your SMF File cache then do a Shift F5 before trying your links? I try everything in the Facebook developers scraper and Twitter Card validator before I post them.

I did the same thing: use the scraper to test and then post. I am sure it is not related to browser cache: the scraper does not use my browser...

It seems that the body text is always interpreted as HTML, even when it is not. I am sure that there is some more work to be done in the Optimus code for that...

Quick action from Bugo! It seems the bbc article issue is fixed! Php article still leaves something to be desired.

I am wondering though if it would not be more appropriate to include an article description field in the articles that could be used when posting to social media.
Now the Optimus mod gets challenged with interpreting different article types... just a thought though...
