    This plugin along with jetpack seems to be causing my website some problem.

    the wrong thumbnails are being showed for my posts, even when i Disable " Jetpack Tags" in the social settings of AIO SEO.

    Any fix to this?

    PLEASE NOTE that everything was working ok until about 5days ago.

    Also the featured Image appears in the widgets(e.g. recent posts tab) on the site as they should but not while sharing.

    Please note that these older posts don't have an inserted pic but they show correct thumbnail, Taken from the featured image.

    In this post though featured image is set plus an image inserted within the post, none of the thumbnails are correct. http://www.yardhype.com/deva-bratt-recently-began-us-tour/

    In this post Featured image is shown in fb thumbnail without a pic being inserted into the post body, however it shows 3 pics, usually the wrong one appears first when sharing.. http://www.yardhype.com/ponset-cham-damian-marley-fighter-video/

    This post showed correctly: http://www.yardhype.com/a-tribute-to-paul-walker-video/

    wrong thumbnails appear for google+ while sharing too.

    So far my fix is that when i publish a post i of to then go to the AIO social settings within the post where the right pic is generated but not selected, i of to then select that pic then update the post, then go to facebook (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug)(enter post's url) to update the thumbnail. I cant seem to get the right thumbnail selected automatically there for i cant use publicize etc.

    I need help. Thank you.
    feel free to ask for more info if needed.

    yardhype,

    It looks like you're using some sort of minification plugin on your site, which makes it hard for me to tell what might be generating your meta tags; however, I do see an extra og:image tag in your header that says content="URL" - that isn't valid, so I suggest you remove it. The Social Meta module in All in One SEO Pack has its own settings for picking a default og:image for new posts where no og:image is set; however, if none of those options work for you, then you will have to pick which og:image to use manually on the post.

    Thanks for looking into this.

    I had WP Minify installed, i uninstalled it so that you could maybe get a better look at whats going on.

    I do see an extra og:image tag in your header that says content="URL" - that isn't valid,

    I dont know where to located this, i went looking in header.php but to no avail.

    All in One SEO is all set up but this don't seems to over ride other coding/tag.

    yardhype,

    This is looking a lot better to me, however be aware that you should flush your cache - you're running WP Super Cache, so anonymous visitors are still getting served old cached pages.

    Ok. I have flushed the catch several times before but no success.

    See this post, i did not manually try to update, shows default thumbnail, if i remove default thumbnail from AIO settings then pics from other(older) posts will appear as the post thumbnail: http://www.yardhype.com/supercar-2014-porsche-991-gt3-sound-video/

    Any idea on how to get the featured image auto selected?

    Look at the image above. i of to manually select as explained below. Any way around this would be helpful.

    So far my fix is that when i publish a post i of to then go to the AIO social settings within the post where the right pic is generated but not selected, i of to then select that pic then update the post, then go to facebook (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug)(enter post's url) to update the thumbnail.

    yardhype,

    On the Social Meta settings page there is an option named "Select OG:Image Source"; if you set that to "Featured Image", then it should default to using the Featured Image.

    Again, that's because of your page caching. Without that, you'd have an og:image of "nikki-z-journeys-with-lisahypermusiq-video-interview-divanikkiz-bringthestingja.jpg"; with it, you have no og:image.

    I disabled wp super catch as u said. publish new post and i having the same prob.

    i will be updating the new post manually, so that visitors share with right thumbnail.

    i still hope to get this on auto soon tho.

    Is your problem that you have to go to the Facebook Debug page first before it shows up? Because that shouldn't affect which og:image tag is on the page.

    Sorry, I don't fully understand what u asking

    Because that shouldn't affect which og:image tag is on the page.

    i understand that it don't affect the OG:image, if i go to facebook debug without manually changing the thumbnail via the AIO social section in the post the problem wont be fixed i always of to manually set the image first.

    If it doesn't change the og:image then that's an issue with Facebook, not an issue with All in One SEO Pack; still, I'll see if I can reproduce this, and will test for the next version of the plugin.

    I am seeing a similar problem with my client's site. We have All In One SEO, Better WordPress Minify and Jetpack installed. Jetpack is set to automatically publicize a blog post to various social media pages with a shortlink from the post. However, the most recent blog post (May 10th 2014) does not display a description or Featured image when posted to Facebook. Older blog posts (April 16th 2014 and older) do show featured image and descriptions when I paste their links in. I tried disabling the minify and cache plugins (after flushing cache one more time) and the result is the same. I am using a custom built theme.

    When I check my source code for the most recent blog post, all the meta tags for og:image and description look correct. AIO SEO definitely identifies the correct image to use as the og:image. However, Facebook itself seems to have issues with identifying that and the descriptive text.

    I made sure to check "disable Jetpack tags" and also went back to the blog post, clicked on the Social Tags tab and filled out the info I wanted, selected the thumbnail I wanted to generate, hit save, flushed my cache. Still no change.

    EDIT: I tried a new test post and everything seems to transmit perfectly. I'm not sure why that one blog post is being problematic though. The new test post I made definitely transmits the proper tags for Facebook to read.

    Hi coolhatwebdesign,

    It's impossible to say why that one post had issues. It could be something that was changed in Jetpack or something that happened with Facebook. If All in One SEO Pack displays the correct Open Graph meta tags in the source code it's up to JetPack and Facebook to use them.

    You should note we've seen Facebook ignore Open Graph meta occasionally, it could be that they're beta testing something with regards to what they use from the page content and the Open Graph meta.
