So I followed the "Add Twitter Cards without plugins" this tutorial for how to add twitter metatags into the header using the
I have pretty much taken the code as is, and put it in my functions.php.
This works great for all the metatags except
get_the_excerpt() which seems to just return nothing and so the metatag ends up looking like this:
<meta name="twitter:description" value="">
I thought that the line:
global $post; meant that I should have access to all the post data in this code in the same way as if I was calling these functions in the loop.
Does anybody know why it isn't working? Or if there are better ways of doing it than this?
Any help is appreciated.
