- Only the default image is being used, whats wrong?
- You need to add an image as a featured image for this plugin to work correctly.
- It doesn’t seem to be working correctly, whats wrong?
- You may not have entered your Facebook ID and your Facebook Application ID, if you have, double check it, and make sure it’s correct!
- Why have you updated so many times since its been submitted?
- I’m new to working with WordPress, so there will be updates to correct errors to make sure it works perfectly for everyone who downloads this!
- How do I replace the default image?
- Go to “wordpress directory”/wp-content/plugins/wp-ogp and replace default.jpg with another image with the same name! This only works for the default image, you need to add a featured image on the post page for it to work with articles.
