    Hi Everyone,

    For the past 2 day I've been trying to sort this problem, and I've searched these forums and no one has anything I haven't tried yet.

    When I post a link to Facebook no post thumbnail appears.
    My site is: http://totallybigbrother.co.uk/

    I've tried the debug on facebook and i get these error messages:

    Inferred Property	The 'og:url' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property	The 'og:title' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property	The 'og:description' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.
    Inferred Property	The 'og:image' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.

    Hopefully someone can help!
    I've removed all the previous Facebook plugin's I've tried, so any idea's would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for reading!

    Did you try to set a featured image for each blog post? It might help.

    And yes, featured images are selected already.

    HI alfiegreen,

    This seems to be a very common issue, and if you search this forum you'll find a good number of posts complaining about it. Check the below out and let us know if it helped.

    No, the problem is still happening. I want to be able to show the featured image from each post as the thumbnail, and now I am only getting the image I put into the header.
