    Hey guys.
    The way FB used to work was it would read OGP tags from an array and display in order. They’ve since changed the way they read them.
    In a future version that I haven’t had time to flush bugs out yet… I’m going with a more direct route with image selection. If there’s a Featured Image… display only that. If the ‘default image’ is set, I’ll override the feature image.
    As a single developer on this I just haven’t had the time recently to rebuild the stuff needed. It will come out however along with a refresh look to boot. Sorry for the delay but paying bills comes before free software offerings lol. Cheers
