[resolved] Use screenshot for facebook sharing (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I am developing a user generated content website. After user have generated a page, I would like to offer the user the option to 'like' or 'share' it on Facebook. However, the page does not contain an image, it is all nicely styled text. (as in a nice styled quote)

    Can this plugin be used to create a screenshot of the content area (not whole page), and have that image stored on a location that can be called in the header for the link image source for facebook to use?

    And how could that be done?

    No, this plugin takes a full sized screenshot of a website only. For sharing links with images I would suggest looking into Open Graph meta tags usage.

    Try adding this to your functions.php:
