Support » Plugin: WP Facebook Open Graph protocol » always share the default image

  • Resolved stars25


    when I try to share to facebook it keeps sharing the default image even my posts have a featured image, how can I fix this ?
    If I disable the plugin, it shares the correct featured image but if there is no image it shares a random image, I’m using wordpress 4.6.1

    Easy answer right now: no.

    Real answer, is soonish. The way the Facebook prioritized images presented on the timeline when this version was released, everything was peachy keen. They defaulted to the first one presented in the array and you could click arrows to select others available. A while back they removed that functionality and now choose an image they decide to use. Now… most of the times that’s the first image you offer them given the image size is appropriate to their suggestions, however this too is sometimes hit or miss. In the newer version of this plugin, on github and needs more testing before release, I have it set up so the featured image will be the only one suggested for open graph, if not it’ll look for a content image, then use the fallback. That should ‘fix’ most use-cases out there.
    I’m finishing client work still but I’m looking to jump back into that new version to release it by december probably.
