When I try to share a link from my WordPress site on facebook using the Jetpack Sharing Settings the link shows up like this:

(My Featured image picture here)

Put a hat on yo’ baby! | Trendz with Trina


You may use these HTML tags and attributes: < a href="" title=""> < abbr title=""> < acronym title=""> < b> < blockquote cite=""> < cite> < code> < del datetime=""> < em> <i> < q cite=""> < strike> < strong>

How do I get rid of the "you may use blah blah blah" and have a description of my site or the post?

Questions on WordPress Development Stack Exchange are expected to relate to WordPress within the scope defined by the community.

This part comes from the function comment_form() which is called by your theme, probably in comments.php:

'comment_notes_after'  => '<p class="form-allowed-tags">' 
    . sprintf( __( 
    'You may use these <abbr title="HyperText Markup Language">HTML</abbr> tags 
    and attributes: %s' ), ' <code>' . allowed_tags() . '</code>' ) 
    . '</p>',

You can filter it out with a simple plugin:

Plugin Name: Remove Markup Notice on Comment Form
add_filter( 'comment_form_defaults', 'wpse_41181_remove_markup_notice', 10, 1 );

function wpse_41181_remove_markup_notice( $strings )
    $strings['comment_notes_after'] = '';
    return $strings;

How you get a better description … I don’t know. I’m sure there is a FAQ for that available. Aren’t there settings in /wp-admin/ for this module?
