Setting up Twitter Cards in Joomla with TEXTman
Have you ever tried sharing an article from your Joomla site on Twitter and just got a hyperlink to the website as result? If your site supports Twitter Cards, you can enrich the information that a tweet contains when you share links to your articles. For example the above image coming from our TEXTman 1.0 release tweet.
Joomla doesn't offer support for Twitter Cards. No worries we've got your back. This is where TEXTman comes to the rescue. It offers support for Twitter Cards straight out of the box.
How does this work?
TEXTman automatically adds the following lines of code to your article making the socialisation of your content a breeze!
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" /> <meta name="twitter:title" content="TEXTman 1.0: Frontend article manager for Joomla"/> <meta name="twitter:description" content="TEXTman simplifies managing articles from the frontend of your Joomla website."/> <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image"> <meta name="twitter:image:alt" content="TEXTman simplifies managing articles from the frontend of your Joomla website." />
Using the TEXTman frontend editor you can easily manage the title, description and image that is displayed in the tweet.
