[resolved] Incorrect thumbnail Facebook Recommendation Box (4 posts)

    Hi,

    Great plugin! I have installed in on my site but the thumbnail is not working properly in the Facebook Recommendation Box.

    1) Should the plugin grab the post thumbnail from WP site or my Facebook site?

    2) Will the plugin list relevant post in the Facebook Recommendation Box or just random?

    Thanks,
    Erik

    the plugin will use your post's post thumbnail, if present, as the Open Graph protocol image parsed by Facebook and other sites for story previews.

    Hi Niall, this is a great plugin but I've got the same problems as x3000gold who commented above... Basically the Recommendations section is grabbing the same thumbnail for every different recommendation. I set thumbnails for each article (mainly because the theme I'm using is unfortunately not very good on that front) and on Facebook it allows me to choose which one I want from the article. Here it's just displaying the same one though that it's related to the articles being displayed. I think it must be grabbing a "Related Articles" thumbnail. Any thoughts on a fix as it looks a bit silly at the moment? Thanks in advance!

    p.s. also, for some reason, the Like and Recommendations boxes only appear on the homepage... For some reason they're not showing up on article pages?
