At first, I'm sorry for my english, I'll try to do my best because I'm Argentinian.

This is how publicize send automatic posts.

What should I do? I am trying to solve this but I can't.


  • Can you look at this answer. Similiar to your question. If you change some variables you can delete description or add more specific things. wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/226281/23042 Aug 11 '18 at 21:37

  • Answer's code add hashtags to content bu youcan change $custom_message = $content . ' ' . $hash_tags; to $custom_message = get_the_permalink(); will resolve your problem. I will add answer with corrected code. Aug 12 '18 at 2:07

Remove Jetpack's publicize description with this code. Add this code to your theme's functions.php

// Remove description of posts on social share
if ( class_exists( 'Jetpack' ) && Jetpack::is_module_active( 'publicize' ) ) {
    function tsj_publicize_hashtags() {
        $post = get_post();
        if ( ! empty( $post ) ) {
                $custom_message = get_the_permalink(); 
                update_post_meta( $post->ID, '_wpas_mess', $custom_message );
    /* Save that message */
    function tsj_cust_pub_message_save() {
    add_action( 'save_post', 'tsj_publicize_hashtags', 21 );
    add_action( 'publish_post', 'tsj_cust_pub_message_save' );

Respond me if code works.

  • Hello! Thanks for your reply! I've tested this code but it doesn't work :/ I already added this code to my functions.php

  • In Jetpack, custom messages probably same for all sharing platform. I will check documentation. Aug 13 '18 at 21:45
  • So, there is no chance to custom facebook posts? I just need to delete description and stay with title+link . So, I think we can delete only description, right?
