Post Tabs

The Meta tab contains the fields associated with the meta data placed in the <head> section of the page holding the full contents of the post.

The Feature Image tab allows an image to be uploaded or read directly from a location on the internet, this image is then used as the feature image for the post. The feature image is shown next to post abstracts and within the post body depending on the design you implement.

The Open Graph tab allows the information being presented to social networks such as Facebook to be configured, this information includes an optimized image,  title of the post and post description. If the fields under this tab are left blank then the blog module will do its best to fill the Open Graph meta data with appropriate information.

To ensure that the Open Graph data is presented properly to the networks, the [[$blog.ogMeta]] chunk should be placed in the <head> section of the template being used for the blog.
