FAQ

How do I upload thumbnails for Facebook Share?

You can upload new thumbnail in Settings->Easy Facebook Share Thumbnails.

How Facebook can determine my thumbnail?

For default, Facebook Share will use your active thumbnail if the page that you are going to share does not
have thumbnail.

I want to use different thumbnail for each pages/posts that I want to share in Facebook

You can do this using Featured Image in Post/Page settings.

My current theme does not support Featured Image

The plugin will automatically activate Featured Image even the current theme used does not support this feature.

What image files that are currently supported?

Only .GIF, .PNG and .JPEG that are currently supported.

Something is not working correctly. Whats wrong?

The plugin is still in its infancy. The rapid evolution of facebook is great, but its hard to keep up sometimes when developing free plugins. Were committed to the plugin though!

Report a Bug

I have updated the featured image but it is not being reflected when sharing the post on facebook

When trying out sharing functionality on facebook, your page may be saved or cached in the incorrect manner. If you have been making a number of changes to your post and would like facebook to get a fresh copy, kindly add a random number to your post url instead of the Xs like so: http://domain.com/this-is-the-post-title/?efs=XXXX This will trick facebook into thinking that you are sharing a different page, and load up the latest copy (of the same page).

I have updated the plugin and it stopped working!

Kindly try and deactivate and reactive the plugin on the Plugins page. If this doesnt work, please make sure that no other facebook function-adding plugins are running alongside this one.

I cannot seem to upload an image.

Be sure that the thumbnails directory in the plugin directory is writable.
