For that you need to go to Dashboard=>Pages=>click on edit page which you want to edit.  You can also configure default settings for all pages and posts from Dashboard=>Appearance=>Customise => Layouts => Archive / Post Single / Page  to show or not show respectively on "Archive", "Post Single" and "Generic pages".

How to configure Post Formats icons (categories or tags)?

  • 1. In Dashboard=>Posts->Categories/tags select icons for categories/tags.
  • 2. In Dashboard=>Appearance=>Customise=>Design=>Badges under "post formats icons" select categories and/or tags which should show icons if assigned.

Why badges/reactions not visible on post?

  • For showing up badges on posts you need to set conditions for them first. You can do that from:
  • Dashboard=>Appearance=>Customize=>Post Reactions System and Dashboard=>Appearance=>Customize=>Post Ranking System
    In the example of the Post Reactions system: You can set Reaction Award Minimal Score=20 Reactions Maximal Count Per Vote=2 This means every time when a user clicks on reaction that post will get 2 points and after 10 clicks on posts when post score will have 20 points that reaction will be shown as badge in post listing.
    The same works for Post Ranking system.

How to hide the 2nd image in a single post?

Why random description shown when sharing on Facebook?

  • In cases if posts don't have text content (it's single image or embed only) facebook were tried to take random content from the whole page, after installing the Yoast SEO plugin you can add default meta description for posts in SEO->Title & Metas->Post Types->Meta description template, it's the proper way to set up description for such posts, you can also add meta description per post manually in post editing page in wp admin via appropriate Yoast SEO fields there http://dumpp.co/wp-admin/post.php?post=2096&action=edit . If on the previously created post you can still see the old random description - it means they are cached, you can clean it via facebook debugger https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ - paste post url, click on debug and then on "scrape again", fb debugger will crawl your old post meta data again.

What to do if view counter doesn't work?

  • Try to deactivate the theme and then activate it again.

Why when sharing on social networks users see wrong post meta description?

  • In cases when your posts have image or video only and there is no any text, description or excerpt in a post, so meta description isn't generated and Facebook crawler takes random content automatically.
  • If you're going to create such kind of posts we suggest to put default meta description via Yoast SEO plugin.
    You can do it in Dashboard=>SEO=>Titles & Metas=>Post Types=>Meta description template.
    You can use your site's slogan or have any other text
    Please be aware from cached old posts, meta description won't be renewed automatically - you need to use a Facebook debugger to clear the cache for old posts https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ .
