[resolved] Posting URL instead of Title (2 posts)

    Hi, on two identical WordPress installations it seems like posts to FB contain the post title as they should on one, but display the full URL of the post on another. The results can been seen on the two facebook pages, the websites and pages are:

    Correct:
    http://www.moviedownloads4you.com
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Movie-Downloads-4-You/198746680153691

    Incorrect:
    http://www.moviedownloads4u.com
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Movie-Downloads-4-U/135607866512509

    I can't figure out what I may be missing. The settings for your plugin are the same on both sites, as are the permalinks settings. Both sites run the same plugins too.

    Thanks in advance!
    Ken

    Hi ksoszka,

    I just checked how facebook sees your two URL's (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint). The second URL seems to have too many redirects or is redirecting too slow, so Facebook aborts loading the page and outputs just the link with no image.

    You can verify this yourself, simply share a link to a post of your second site: Facebook does not show thumbnails or the title, just the URL.

    1. Redirect to: /KOilS/movie-review-tron-legacy-blogcritics-org-blog/6000
    2. Redirect to: /movie-review-tron-legacy-blogcritics-org-blog/6000
    3. text/html OK

    Perhaps you should disable this redirecting, since it makes it hard to share your links in general.
