HOW to override meta tags in CASCADE:

Cascade allows content creators to override or adjust social media meta tags. For example, a content creator may not want to use an image banner or they want to use a different title, description, or image than the one used on a page, event, or news article.

Edit any page, event, or news article and scroll to the bottom of the form and choose the Social Media Sharing Metadata section. You can then add a custom title, description, or image override of your choice.

Q: How can I verify my social media meta tag override worked?
A: Make your social meta tag edits, publish your page, event, or news article then wait for your edited changes to go live. Then use your phone, browser, sharing app, or a meta tag validator tool to verify.
