[resolved] Facebook Share only showing homepage url... (3 posts)

    I'm having what seems to be a common problem with the Facebook sharing feature through Jetpack. On my blog, if you click the Facebook button, it brings up the share window with only my blog homepage and url...no thumbnail or title and url to the post selected. This is the same for both main pages and single pages. I've looked at the source of my page and it appears that it's got the right og:url's and such...

    What gives?

    Could you try to clear Facebook cache for that page, by entering its URL in Facebook debugger:

    You will also get more information about the meta tags in use on your site on this Debug page.

    I did do the debug to no avail yesterday. I did manage to find out some other issues though...so it's still a good tool.

    That said, after messing with it forever yesterday, I did manage to get it working. I'm not sure if this solution will work for everyone, but maybe it will be a help to those searching for this.

    I ended up changing my permalink structure in the settings from the date option to a custom option, and filled in my information from there. I'm not sure if I didn't have proper permalinks going or what, but as soon as I did that, the Facebook share began working.
