WP Facebook Open Graph protocol
[resolved] Blank thumbnail previews when using FB Debugger when image exists (6 posts)

    Hmmm... I've created a post and assigned a featured image to it. The OG meta tags are properly displaying in the source code. However when using the Facebook debugger, only a thumbnail preview is generated for the default image. Clicking on the blank area where the thumbnail should be links correctly back to my hosting account with the JPEG image.

    When actually posting a link to Facebook, only the default image is found and no option is given to display any of the other images.

    Generated meta information

    <meta property="fb:app_id" content="140100779474892"/>
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://new.nyca.com/2012/11/26/when-brands-die-off/"/>
    <meta property="og:title" content="WHEN BRANDS DIE OFF"/>
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="NYCA"/>
    <meta property="og:description" content="By Michelle Edelman, President  I have to admit to being oddly devastated by the news that Hostess may shutter operations after 82 years in business.   For"/>
    <meta property="og:type" content="article"/>
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://new.nyca.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Hostess-Twinkies-Box-Small1.jpg"/>
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://new.nyca.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Hostess-Twinkies-Box-Small1.jpg"/>
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://new.nyca.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/default-fb-img.jpg"/>
    <meta property="og:locale" content="en_us"/>

    Anyone have suggestions on what could be going on here? I've pretty much ruled out server permissions as Facebook is able to find each of the images when I post a link directly to them.

    Hi Chuck,

    That was a development sub-domain. I've subsequently moved all the files under the nyca.com domain. The same file paths should exist.

    Hi there!

    My wordpress site is http://www.myserendestiny.com and when I'm posting certain posts to facebook, the thumbnail image preview does not show up. The puzzling thing is, this only happens for some of the posts and I can't figure out what the difference is. I went through and all the posts have a set featured image, could someone help me out with this? Thanks!
