Configuration

To configure TAGZ, go to Components -> TAGZ Open Graph (FREE|PRO). Then click on the CONFIG tab (See screenshot below):

In the CONFIG tab you will find the following:

A note in advance: if you make changes in the plugin's settings, do not forget to save them. If you don't save them, the changes will be lost.

GLOBAL SETTINGS

  • Site Name: This is the og:site_name property, used to identify your website.
  • Priority when conflict between Component TAG / Menu Item TAG: In a case when two Tags have been defined for a page (a Tag for a Menu Item pointing to an Article and a Tag for the Article itself) a choice needs to be made what Tag to use. You can define here if this is the Menu Item Tag or the Component Tag (like a Joomla Article, K2 Article or Virtuemart product).
  • Remove TAGS created by other extensions?: Double Tags on a page are not ok. It is best to only keep the ones defined by TAGZ. If you enable this option these additional Open Graph (and Twitter Cards) Tags defined by other extensions will be removed by TAGZ. If you are certain there are no other Tags on your page just keep this option disabled.

AUTOMATIC UPDATES

TAGZ can be automatically updated. For more info how to do this and what to enter in the Download ID, click here.
