Inconsistent Social Sharing Support

Product: Narrative

At the moment, content shared to Flipboard, Facebook, and other networks sometimes use the default "Narrative: The World's Online Journal" page title instead of the title of the actual post. This seems to be intermittent, but it would be great to have better support for sharing (Flipboard, for example, cannot import the featured image for posts at all).

Hi David

Sorry, I just noticed that some posts do share, but others still give me a "This could not be flipped" error.

Here's an example of a post that doesn't flip:

https://www.narrative.org/post...blue-flowers-part-ii

Here is one that did work:

https://www.narrative.org/post...-flicking-its-tongue

I'm trying to flip these by opening them on my phone, tapping on the Share button in my browser, selecting Flipboard, and then selecting a magazine. 

Ok. I don't really know how Flipboard actually works to be quite honest.  Had never used it before.

I did this one  https://flipboard.com/@daviddr...ve-network-r1aheraly

The post form AussieNinja was the one I put in after we did the fix.  It did actually tell me that it couldn't be flopped. and I just hit the submit button again and it worked.   I didn't know if that's us or Flipboard.  I had never used it before.

If you have one that doesn't work can you just resubmit and see if it does?  And whether it does or does not, can you give me both the Narrative link and the Flipboard link?  That'll give us more logs to work with, which is always helpful.

Thanks.  Are you able to see the link that I gave you?   I'm not sure if people can see each other's... boards?

If so you'll see the initial one didn't work, as you said, but the second one did when I resubmitted it.

Your magazine is set to Private so I can't view it. 

However, I noticed something interesting on mine... Several of the links that said they couldn't be flipped last night, did in fact save too flipboard - they just needed some time to appear:

I'll keep testing and report back.
