[resolved] Custom og:image for homepage not working (4 posts)

    Often when people link to my website on Facebook (www.frome.fm) it often automatically adds one of the images of our sponsors instead of chosing something more appropriate.

    I have used the code found at http://jetpack.me/2013/07/12/add-a-default-image-open-graph-tag-on-home-page to make a functionality plugin however this does not seem to have worked.

    Viewing the source html still shows the following:
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://wordpress.com/i/blank.jpg" />

    Instead of the image url I would prefer:

    Any idea?

    I added in the code for the custom Twitter tag which did work but the custom image did not.
