WP Open Graph
Facebook showing the wrong image/description (5 posts)

    Hi, thanks for this plugin! I am having some issues getting the plugin settings to override what Facebook wants to include by default. I have created a custom description and uploaded a specific feature image to a page and the preview looks like this:

    http://s21.postimg.org/j13sqt8uv/Screen_Shot_2014_03_10_at_11_45_39_AM.png

    But when I share that page on Facebook, this is what I get:

    http://s14.postimg.org/bdeaahvpt/Screen_Shot_2014_03_10_at_11_46_35_AM.png

    Any ideas what could be causing this? Is there a delay between when I set the meta information and when Facebook will begin displaying it? Thanks!

    *UPDATE*

    I found this link: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

    Which allows you to manually refresh the OG meta data and now it is working great, thanks again, this plugin has saved me a lot of headaches!

    Did you try using the debug tool to manually refresh the data on Facebook's end? That's what worked for me.

    I have been using WP Open Graph on sites for quite a while. Just this morning, I noticed that despite manually updating the og description and title (rather than letting them feed from All in One SEO pack), the og tags in the source code of the page are still the old title and description. I've tried the facebook debugger, but obviously that wouldn't change the source code on my page... any ideas?

    looking at: http://growingsmartkids.com

    in the plugin:
    title: how to help your kids love math | growing smart kids
    description: Is math is stressful, boring, or confusing for your kids? At Growing Smart Kids, we bring math into the real world with hands-on math activities, games, and explorations.

    in the source code and on the facebook debugger page:
    title: growing smart kids
    description: playful learning for active minds

    Thanks!
