    Another question...Normally sharepress select the first picture or with no photo the standard picture. When I want to post a video is it also possible to show the video instead of the standard photo?

    @OnlineGalerij - this isn't possible yet. If I understand you correctly what you're looking for is to have a "video post" in WordPress become a video post on Facebook. I have considered implementing something like this, but what I can't get around is how it sort of runs counter to a traffic strategy that includes Facebook social media distribution as one means of generating an audience.

    For example, if one of the things you do with your blog is post interesting videos that you find online, what you really want is for people to come TO your blog to watch them, just increasing the traffic to your site. If instead the video were posted to Facebook, people would just watch it there, and not come to your site at all.

    What do you think?
