Adjusting text in FB Share

Hello,
When people share an entry through the FB Share, it is pulling up some text from the competition sidebar. What can we do so that this text is not pulled up - or where do we adjust it so that other text would pull up instead?

Our contest can be found here:
irishdancing.global/index.php/contests/big-prize-giveaway

Thank you,
Cameron

Note - I saw a similar issue, www.norrnext.com/forum/social-share-for-...text-of-the-news#882 , but this did not issue a resolution that I could use to solve this issue. TY

Hello Cameron,

Thank you for pointing out this problem. In the current version of NorrCompetition, the Open Graph tags are generated for photo content only.
We need to implement an additional feature to check out the type of contest and add special tags on the entry page to support videos. The task is already added to the to-do list and will be released in the next version of NorrCompetition.

Thank you. I'll look forward to the next release then. I believe this may have been exacerbated by another recent adjustment on the FB end, but hopefully your adjustment will be the perfect solution.

Hi Cameron.

Just a note here about the text - when you share it should pull the contest description. So if your contest does not contain description FB tries to pull some other text.

A possible workaround I see here is to insert empty description OG tag like if there is not contest description:

<meta property="og:description" content="" />

But I do not know will it help or not :) This will be tested and we will let you know.

Dmitry
