Setup Filter to change OpenGraph URL ( og:url )

#277724
  • Hi,
    I am changing my whole website to https instead of http. (this is my site http://www.new-synapse.com/aps/wordpress/)
    This means my Facebook Comments and all share counts (FB, Pinterest etc.) will not load anymore(collected over 9 years).
    I found your page about Filters (https://rankmath.com/kb/filters-hooks-api-developer/).

    Filter to change OpenGraph URL ( og:url ).
    /**
    * Allows the output of the canonical URL as OpenGraph URL, consolidating likes and shares.
    *
    * @link https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/opengraph/object-type/article/
    * @param $url Canonical URL
    */
    add_filter( ‘rank_math/opengraph/url’, function( $url ) {
    return $url;
    });

    Can you explain how I would get this to work?

    I understand how to create the functions file rank-math.php.

    But do I have to change the canonical url in all posts (95 posts and pages) to the http url first?

    Or would I create a list of all 95 post urls, and then add that add_filter code to the rank-math.php file for 95 lines with the urls?

    I read changing canonical urls for every url might have a problem – “However, this might not be ideal as the canonical URL wouldn’t output the correct reflection of it being HTTPS.”

    Also, I hope it would work with Elementor Pro and the share button plugin…

    FYI this is the official Facebook method: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/faqs#faq_1149655968420144

    Thank you!

  • Thank you, but, sadly, I am not seeing the Facebook Comments in the https post 🙁 This post has 33 comments, and when you load the page you can scroll to the bottom and see that none of them show. 🙁 🙁 🙁 https://www.new-synapse.com/aps/wordpress/?p=741

    I don’t understand coding so I can’t read those links and know what to do with them myself though…

    Hello,

    Upon checking further, we have figured out that the comments are being managed by the data-href tag that is being added by Elementor. The issue has nothing to do with the og:url tag:

    So you should get in touch with Elementor support and ask them to help you modify the data-href tag. You can also remove the code that I have added in the rank-math.php file.

    Let us know how that goes. Looking forward to your update.

    Thanks.

    Oh that is unfortunate. I will contact them. Thank you for letting me know! I appreciate it! I will let you know what they say.
