Thanks again for your very nice template. we are finally online: www.green-living-concept.ch When I post the website link on a social media platform a thumbnail and text is showing up. Where is this taken from and where can I change which text and picture is taken?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Thanks for your reply. I don`t want to change the social icons. I want to change the text and image which is shown when I share the website link on another platform.

I inserted this into the head part of the index.php (attachement 1)
This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.


But somehow it generates some other metatags from another place (attachement 2)

Can you let me know where I can find this to change it? They are not described in the index.php

Thanks in advance

You can change it from backend, go to System->Global Configuration, tab Site, section Metadata Settings.

Hi joomfreak,
thanks for your reply. I can see that I can change the meta text there. But where can I change the picture it uses?
