    Hi Chuck.
    I’m having problems to make facebook take the correct images of each post when sharing content.
    I have a default image for each post and have a secondary general image of my site that facebook use when cannot find the first one.
    Now they are taking only the general image and that’s causing a big problem for me because siteĀ“s promotion is taking a hit by this.
    I ussually wait faceboook to fix because are their issues or make a debug on https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/ but that isnt working.
    I will appreciate some help. Thx.

    PD: my site is contrainfo.com

  • Can confirm same issue as reported above. Facebook is picking up the default image if a featured image isn’t set, despite having one set.

    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
