Requirements and Limitations
- Only one shortcode per page is allowed. No limitations for custom post types though.
- Facebook doesn’t allow to share custom title, description and images since Graph API 2.9. So, It’s NOT possible to share quiz results on Facebook since July 17, 2017. Which means developers can’t customize Facebook sharebox anymore. The quiz page will be shared instead. Meantime, we applied small workaround so you would be able to share result titles inside the sharebox. Screenshot
