Facebook share image problem (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I run a site called http://www.theinspiration.com.
    a few days ago my facebook share button stopped working. I can still share, but I dont get any fb meta data with, when sharing it.

    When i try to linter it:

    I get: Critical Errors That Must Be Fixed
    Error Scraping Page: Bad Response Code

    If i just copy the source code, and make a plain HTML file, post it on a server and linter it, it works with all meta data. (really I just need to have the fB thumbnail image working, when sharing)

    I run W3 Total Cache and CDN (amazon) and I read that this might be why, but when i disable W3 Total Cache, I still get the error.

    I spend 10 hours trying to figure it out today. Can someone help me?

    Hi Daniel,
    Did you find a solution?

    I am having this issue as well. It just happened one day recently, I hadn't changed anything, I'm not sure if it's in line with the new wordpress update or what.

    Either way, I found a temporary solution: if you go to the facebook LINTER, type in the URL for the new article, press debug and click on the very bottom link 'see exactly what our scraper sees...'. When you go back, facebook picks it up. I don't know why this is, so if you find a cause let me know!
