    I have been creating a WordPress plugin that adds the meta tags for Pinning and adds a custom group. My problem that I have noticed is that the meta tags for the name, tooltip, window size and start URL. Don’t actually do anything but the Nav colour does work. I even looked at the BeautyoftheWeb.com site and I have used the same meta tags. I even noticed that that was not changing the tooltip, The tooltip just shows the website title twice with a – between them. I am not sure if this is just a bug with the 64 bit edition but when I use the 32 bit edition the size and start URL do work. The custom List does not work and does not get my favicon. The tooltip is the title of the page.

    I hope any of this helps and would like to help further in any testing and fixing.
