Error and unexpected behavior 3 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
I get this error when clicking "FB Like" button:
Object Missing a Required Value: Object at URL "http://cigarweekly.com/65-cwfeature/261-arp-32" of type "website" is invalid because a required property "og:title" of type "string" was not provided.

I expect that is open text meta tags?
What do I need to do to make that work in my site?

The meta tags are correct and your website HTML too.

It looks to me like a problem of timeout when facebook tries to access your website to scrape informations. Your site seems loading slowly.

Use the Facebook debugger to test however. https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/?q=http%3A%2F%2Fcigarweekly.com%2F65-cwfeature%2F261-arp-32

Refreshing Facebook cache now it was able to fetch informations correctly. Use caching if your site is slow.

Odd.
Facebook debugger says I need the tag:

The 'og:type' property is required, but not present.

i just extended cache time on the site. The Facebook like button is not pulling any info from the article content?

Yes odd.

The og:type is an additional tag that you may supply in your Joomla template but that's not a problem:
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />

It looks that FB has issue when scraping your website. I have no clue on this.

Ok. I'll look into that.

One other question -
I only want the social button to appear in the full article, not the front page where they show with read-more links?

Hi John,

for this you can try to disable options 'Show In Categories' and 'Show In Frontpage' under plugin settings, maybe it will fix it.
