[resolved] [closed] Facebook etc showing wrong thumbnail image for posts on my website (12 posts)

    FOR SOME REASON Social NETWORKS STOP DETECTING THE FEATURED IMAGES SET.

    The wrong thumbnails appear while sharing to social networks, (sometime only same 3 appear)(while another time others show, its like the image not updating in the system for at times pics uploaded earlier shows up as thumbnail for later posts)

    I thinking this problem is between jetpack or All-In-SEO (However i cant find where to fix it)

    PLEASE NOTE that everything was working ok until about 5days ago.

    Also the featured Image appears in the widgets(e.g. recent posts tab) on the site as they should but not while sharing.

    Please note that these older posts don't have an inserted pic but they show correct thumbnail, Taken from the featured image.

    In this post though featured image is set plus an image inserted within the post, none of the thumbnails are correct. http://www.yardhype.com/deva-bratt-recently-began-us-tour/

    In this post Featured image is shown in fb thumbnail without a pic being inserted into the post body, however it shows 3 pics, usually the wrong one appears first when sharing.. http://www.yardhype.com/ponset-cham-damian-marley-fighter-video/

    This post showed correctly: http://www.yardhype.com/a-tribute-to-paul-walker-video/

    wrong thumbnails appear for google+ while sharing too.

    I need help. Thank you.
    feel free to ask for more info if needed.

    <meta property="og:image" content="URL" />

    When you share a post on Facebook, or when Jetpack Publicize publishes a post to your Facebook page, Facebook crawls the page and looks for Open Graph meta tags in the head to build a complete post preview (with an image, title, description, ...).

    Jetpack automatically adds these meta tags for you, unless you already use another plugin to manage Open Graph meta tags. Looking at your site, you seem to be using another plugin to handle Open Graph, so Jetpack doesn't have any control over the look of your posts on Facebook.

    I would suggest that you review your list of active plugins, find out which one of them is used to manage Open Graph meta tags, and contact the plugin author for more help.

    I hope this helps.

    thanks for explaining that.

    I disabled plugins but no success in doing so.

    You still seem to be using another plugin to handle Open Graph meta tags. It will be one of the plugins listed here:
    http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/jetpack/tags/2.6.1/class.jetpack.php#L571

    Once you find out which plugin controls Open Graph tags on your site, you should be able to configure it to display them properly.

    If you do not use any of these plugins, you will need to look at your theme's functions.php file, and make sure that you didn't add any filter to deactivate Jetpack's Open Graph meta tags. Such filter would look like this:

    add_filter( 'jetpack_enable_open_graph', '__return_false', 99 );

    Thank you Jeremy, you have just resolved a problem I had on the back burner... Yoast gives you a whole page of handy settings to take that over with and mess up at will, so it was easily fixed.

    @yardhype, I believe that you intended to say in your initial post that you are using all-in-one-seo, and you will notice that it is on the "list of evil plugins" in Jeremy's code. I suggest moving to Yoast, who has a handy export/import tool so that your valuable efforts in A-I-1-SEO (which we used to use too) will not be lost.

    Good luck, hope to see your issue closed soon.

    I would probably not say "Evil plugins" :) All these plugins (including WordPress SEO) are good at what they do, which is adding Open Graph Meta tags to posts. We created that list so Jetpack doesn't stay "in the way"; if you already use a plugin to manage Open Graph meta tags, you probably don't need an extra set of Open Graph tags. :)

    To solve my problem i had to go into the theme's head code and delete all the facebook coding that were there, this seemed to fix my problem.

    Hi, I'm having the same problem. Whenever any of my blog posts are shared on a Facebook page, it includes in the share an image from the top of my sidebar, not the featured image of the post in question.

    I have Jetpack enabled, and I looked in the underlying source code for one of my blog posts and saw this tag:

    <meta property="og:image" content="http://www.justaquickpeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/dads-message-date-my-daughter.png" />

    That image URL, "dads-message-date-my-daughter.png", is my specified featured image for the blog post in question.

    But when that blog post is shared on Facebook, a different, unrelated image is still displayed in the share.

    I have checked and there are no instances of this tag:

    add_filter( 'jetpack_enable_open_graph', '__return_false', 99 );

    Anywhere in my functions.php file.

    Can anyone please advise me on how to fix this and make my featured images display on Facebook when someone shares any of my articles?

    I would be very grateful, this problem has become very frustrating. Thanks.
