Issue after Update – Social Share Title and URL Default to Homepage, not post page.

I have a social share plugin installed that allows me to share posts with people on twitter and facebook, but ever since your new release came out when I go to share something the link title and url default to my site’s homepage,…. not to the post that I want to share.

Also when I go to facebook directly and use their share link, the same thing happens. I’m not sure if this is an issue with the theme, with the plugin, with wordpress, with buddypress or what. I didn’t know if you might be able to help.

    First thought is did you update the plugin also? With a new version of WordPress it may be you need a new version of the plugin.

    Is it possible to get a ‘baseline’ test by you selecting Twenty Eleven and seeing what happens with that (or BuddyPress Default if using BuddyPress) – we understand this isn’t always possible?

    I can do that, but if it was a plugin issue then when I go to my facebook profile directly and add a link to my facebook news feed, it even doesn’t work there. Going to facebook directly still defaults to my home page url and title and meta description, not the actual post.

    I will switch to 2011 theme and try it.
