Hello Jumbo,

Yes, I know the requirements of Facebook. But I notice that Amazon and Ebay have solved this problem.
My idea is that perhaps this problem can be solved with some dynamic resizing of the image (if it is square).

For example, on my old site I've set up to add a watermark to each photo. This is only achieved by adding two files - php and htcccesses.
In my opinion, it should be possible to set htaccess to determine where the photo request comes from, and if it comes from facebook, resize the photo horizontally. Simply add transparent fields to the left and right of the photo to achieve the required size.
For example, if the photo is 1000x1000 pixels, resize to 1900x1000 pixels without losing content.
What do you think about that?

Yes, that is possible. But IMHO that does not really come under the scope of a meta tag plugin.

Thanks for the ideas.

Hello Jumbo,

I succeeded in the task.  :)
htaccess calls a php file which from a 1000x1000 pixel image, recreates a 1900x1000 pixel image, giving transparency to the left and right. Just for facebook or whatever else is needed (for example, for google).
I am very happy about this. :)

If you want, I can send you the files. Perhaps it is good to improve the plugin by including the files in it. Additionally, you can select the output size of the image in the plugin settings. And under what conditions to act.
Of course if you have time for that.

Sure, I would love to take a look at it.

Ok, just a little more I can do it, and I'll write to you a private message.

Hello Jumbo,

your extension is what I'm looking for a website I'm working on.
My only doubt is about last update: it looks like nothing has been done since 31 March 2015.
Is that an abandoned project or is still an active extension?

Furthermore, does it have any conflict with the K2 OG generator?

Thanks.

The plugin still works fine with latest Joomla 3.8.2 and VirtueMart 3.2.4. Therefore we have not released any newer updates.

We have not tested it using K2. If you need you can disable the plugin for K2 pages.

Thanks a lot for your answer.
I'll give it a try and let you know about how it works with K2.
