Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP)
[resolved] Inserting link to post on Facebook displays Related Posts thumbnails (4 posts)

    After updating to 4.0.3, I am unable to pull any thumbnails from my recent posts as options for thumbnails when linking to my post on Facebook. If I try inserting a link to a post that I wrote prior to this update, Facebook pulls all of the images in the post as options for the thumbnail. If I insert a link to a post I wrote after the update, Facebook pulls only the thumbnails of the 5 Related Posts associated with that post.

    Any idea why this is happening? I updated to WP 3.5 the same day, so I'm not sure if it's an issue with that update, with the update for this plugin, or for something else entirely.

    Help!

    What are you using to push your posts to Facebook? Do you have the "automatic display" option in YARPP turned on? Do you have "automatic display" turned on for the RSS portion of the settings?

    I think I've figured it out. It appears to be a problem with Facebook. I tested by writing a post with both YARPP and Related Posts Slider turned off, and still had the problem, so I posted a question to fellow bloggers. Apparently, pasting the post link into Facebook without the final slash fixes the problem. Thanks for your response!
