Add Link to Facebook
[resolved] Once published W/O add link to FB, cannot update W/ link to FB or re- (6 posts)

    I maintain a video site. We use On Demand theme which supports featured images. Post have embeded video, mostly from YouTube, and we use Video Thumbnails plugin to locate and upload video thumbnails on YoiTube, Vimeo, etc to the Wordmedia media libay for use as featured images.

    Video Thumbnails plugin won't find the thumbnails until the post is published. And then, it sometimes is necessary to try once more to retrieve the thumbnail and update the post.

    The problem is, once the post is published, even with "Add Link to Facebook" NOT checked, a ink will NOT appear when the post is updated with "Add Link to Facebook" checked.

    I have also tried cghanging post status to daft, then re-publishing. That won't work either.

    Why should this be the case? Can this problem be fixed?

    I have just tested to be sure:

    • Publish a post with 'Do not add link to Facebook' checked
    • Update the post with this option unchecked
    • Change post status to draft, update
    • Publish (again)

    and a link is added to Facebook as expected.

    Did you skip a step?
    For example the update after changing the post status to draft?

    Thank you so much for the work-around. I didn't update the post with option unchecked (step two). Works like a charm. No on to the other problems!

    Hey Marcel,

    this workaround works for me only partially. There is a post being published to fb but when i close or refresh the fb wall-page it disappears.

    Can you help me out with this?

    Thank you in advance

    Apparently the plugin does its work correct, its adds the link, else you didn't see it on Facebook. Everything else is up to Facebook.
