[resolved] Featured image not showing on Facebook shares (6 posts)

    When I paste the URL of a single post page from my site to my FB fan page it shows a default image and not the featured image I selected as the preview image.

    When I paste that same URL in FB's debugger page it shows the image that I selected as the featured image as the og:image

    How come the image I selected as the featured image doesn't show up as the preview image? How do I fix it so that it does?

    Here is a sigle post page from my site:

    I tried replacing the http://ogp.me references in the file open-graph-protocol.php with og: and it didn't work. Any other suggestions?

    I am not sure why the correct image shows in the debugger but not when pasting the link into FB comments section on my fan page.

    Facebook.com's crawler changed their indexing of pages, which broke a few things. Can you please update if plugin version 1.1.6 fixes this issue for you?
