    Hi,

    Thank you for the great plugin.
    I'm wondering if it's a known issue or if it is intended that Facebook Image Post doesn't actually post the featured image.

    Regards,

    Facebook Image Post does post featured image. Make sure your featured image is set at the time post goes live and it's not protected from something like "hotlinking".

    I'm using Photon from Jetpack, could that be the reason?

    Thanks.

    It seems that is not related with Photon, do you have any idea how can I debug it? Couldn't find any relevant info on the logs.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    Sorry for multiple posts, I've found out that the problem was related to WP RSS Multi-Importer plugin which probably adds featured image in a different way. I would appreciate any suggestions but in any way your plugin works great!

    Will it work if you repost it manually?

    Most probably it adds featured image after the post has been already published. You can solve that by settings 3-5 minutes delay before autoposting.

    It works fine if I'm adding the post manually, if that's what you asked.
    How can I change that delay ?

    As far as I found out that plugin uses the following for setting up the featured image.
    add_post_meta( $post_id, '_thumbnail_id', $attachment_id, true )

    I have added _thumbnail_id in Custom field name under Settings/Alternative "Featured Image" location but still no luck.

    Thanks.

    It it works fine when you click "Repost" button manually, then you don't need _thumbnail_id, you need delay.
