Add Facebook Share Thumbnail + Meta


Many themes have the problem that they do not generate an appropriate thumbnail with according meta tag in your page head for use with Facebook’s “Share” function.
So if someone pushes the share button on one of your posts or pages the suggested image would be everything but your post thumbnail.

There are some rules to follow for preventing this, and this plugin takes care of them!


  1. Check if “add_theme_support(‘post-thumbnails’);” is existing in your theme’s functions.php file
  2. If not, add this line!
  3. Download the plugin, unzip it and upload the “fbsharethumbnail” folder to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory
  4. Activate the plugin and regenerate your thumbnails (I suggest using the “AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild” plugin)
  5. Enjoy!


This #?$&! doesn’t work, go to hell!

There are some limits no plugin in the world could avoid.
Most of them are explained on the plugin homepage, please read it!
