Moving forward with Composr

Head over to compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.


Sharing my page as a link on Facebook shows "{$SITE_NAME*}"

Whenever my link is shared on Facebook it looks like this - see where it says Welcome to {$SITE_NAME*} Why does it do that it that supposed to be that way?

In those two, it looks like the wrong tempcode is being used.

In friendly's situation, it looks like the tempcode just isn't being parsed/evaluated.
I am sure Chris will get them sorted soon.
Yep, and they should be trivial.

I think it is your meta description for your front page friendly. Just edit the Comcode page and change what it is.

The v8 description generator is actually smarter about this (but that only affects new users); still for such a critical page it is worth tuning this as for a block-laden page ocPortal's guess tends to be poor.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

You were correct, I edited the main page at "Search Engine Optimisation, and Tagging"> "Concise description" and found it showed "Welcome to {$SITE_NAME*}" and by changing it to "Welcome to the Art and Imagination of David L Friend" it fixed the shared link description.

Thanks Chris!
