i was wondering if anyone knows how to make it so that when i paste a link to my page on another website, it will show the page info and not just the main site info....like for instance a video on one of my pages, if i want to paste a link to it, it just shows the name of my website and my main meta data, not the name of the video page...

Tracy, I am wondering where are you trying to paste the link?

Here is what I did, I copied URL of the page to one of the videos on my Oxwall installation. The url is mysitename.com/video/view/2 .

I pasted this URL to Facebook.

Result is bellow. Both video title and video tags were grabbed by FB.

It is 50/50. Oxwall has certain fields with certain data.
Another site ( where Oxwall link is pasted at) grabs certain fields and data. Sometimes it grabs needed data, sometimes not. A lot depends on "other" site's settings.
