Facebook not displaying WordPress images (6 posts)

    I've been having a bit of a fight with facebook recently. It will not display any thumbnails from wordpress - the only thing that shows up is a blue box with what looks like a standby button on it.

    If you try and add this link to a facebook page you will see what i mean http://www.theothersidemag.co.uk/2011/02/video-of-the-week-alessis-ark-wire/

    It will not display the corresponding picture. I've tried all realms of fixes... turned off the plugins, added suggested plugins but to no avail. I really hope someone can help me out as this is driving me nuts.



  2. Facebook's method of pulling the image is buggy. If the image is included in the page, it's generally fine, but if it's the featured image, it may not work :/ Which is facebook's bug, not WPs. Happens with a lot of sites these days.

    I've even tried that. In the featured image - in the post - the annoying thing is that about once a week it works. So essentially is there nothing we can do?

    Hi Piotr, I found the issue inside a wordpress plugin called share and follow. There's an option for something called gravatar which was the image that kept appearing. You need to deselct this and it should work ok.

    exactly - Share and follow/mine fault. I didn't change setting from author gravatar to image from post.

    Thank you a lot for this post.
