    Hi,
    Firstly this is a fantastic plugin and the instructions are very informative so thank you very much.

    I am having some problems posting images to my facebook page, the text and URL links come over fine but the %IMG% tag does not seem to find any images. We are posting auctions rather than just blogs but they all have more than one image.

    my facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Redoocecom/391661667553964

    and my WP website is http://www.redooce.com

    I hope you can assist as the facebook post really needs the image to make it interesting.

    thanks

    Facebook does not support HTML, so you can't include an image to your post and so %IMG% tag is pretty useless for it. The only way to get image to Facebook is to "attach" the blogpost to your Facebook post.

    Hi,
    I am a bit confused as under the instructions for Facebook for format info, it says we can use any of the tags...

    %SITENAME% - Inserts the Your Blog/Site Name, %TITLE% - Inserts the Title of your post, %URL% - Inserts the URL of your post, %SURL% - Inserts the Shortened URL of your post, %IMG% - Inserts the featured image, %TEXT% - Inserts the excerpt of your post, %RAWTEXT% - Inserts the body(text) as typed, %FULLTEXT% - Inserts the processed body(text) of your post, %AUTHORNAME% - Inserts the author's name.

    Should %IMG% not be include here for Facebook?

    Thanks

    You are right, it does sound confusing. it should say: "%IMG% - Inserts the URL of the featured image"
