@Otto - I'm so sorry, honestly I realized right after that I did that lol.
In either case after spending oh about 12 hours =) going through everything I figured out the issue. And I have to say I feel dumb. The theme I use, has an OG integration as well, and it was conflicting. Now you would think it was easy to figure that out, but I was just so tired that I didn't put 1+1 together, and I feel silly.
In either case, I wanted to thank you for taking the time @Otto to reply!
I do have one other question, which is a bit off this topic, but still within it. I can't seem to find where I can change the default image selection for open graph to use if I don't set a featured image for the blog post that i'm posting on WordPress, so it automatically pushes it to facebook.
I've checked the following places:
1. The OG App Settings - i've put all the icons and images i want to use there, but it still posts with my default theme logo / my default wordpress set logo if no featured image is selected.
2. The actual WP theme has an OG on/off option, and if turned on, I can set an alternative image, but having OG on through the theme conflicts with the Facebook plugin. so I need an alternative.
3. The alternative I could think of is on the facebook side, but I'm lost there.
That said, if you have any feedback, I'd appreciate the help!
Also, I know this is related to the action type but i can't seem to "highlight" any of the posts pushes to my timeline, and i have to manually go to the developer area on facebook and "allow" a post on my timeline, otherwise it shows up only in my activity area.
I've done as much reading as my mind can take and I can seem to find the answers.
