Meta tags for blog posts (specifically open graph for Facebook)

I manage the articles of my magazine under the functional blog page. Individual blogs are not editable under page management. I want to insert meta tags for each individual post, specifically Open Graph tags so that my articles can be shared with the correct title and description and not the overall title and description of the functional page. Any meta tags or OG tags I insert in the html of the blogs become erased when I save the html code after the system "cleans up html coding". Has any one else had this problem or would know of any way to accomplish what I am looking to do?!

Thanks,

-Ryan

        Sharing url to Facebook does not provide the Open Graph preview. Attempting to fetch new scrape information is also unsuccessful. Updating metatags with OG tags doesn't work either. Sharing events on various social media also does not display preview. This is crucial for promoting the website since we all know users require visual enticement to click on a link in social media.

        Add another author wishing to have basic handling added to the list. This is annoying not to get the correct thumbnail in FB.... you now have three folks asking, I suspect most are simply not aware of the problem.

        Just wondering if this have been scheduled for development ?

        I am currently creating roughly 5-10 events per month and linking them on Facebook. The events no longer show up with images and from what Ive read this is the only solution.

        Regards,

        I use dlvr.it to auto-post new events via the rss feed to facebook. Unfortunately, FB has a bad habit of choosing my logo as the thumbnail for the event link, rather than the image posted in the event description. I want to be able to use FB og meta tags to try and force which image is used The types of tags I am referring to are (the image tag in particular) <meta property="og:title" content="My title" /><meta property="og:type" content="article" /><meta property="og:url" content="My url" /><meta property="og:image" content="my img" /><meta property="og:site_name" content="My site name" /><meta property="fb:admins" content="admin number" /> It was a little more reliable previously, but since FB changed its timeline format (yet again) and image size requirements, its become a necessity to use these to get my preferred image seen.
        I have seen php solutions whereby the og tag content is generated dynamically and am wondering if anyone has seen or is using a solution that works on WA that they might care to share.....?
