Support » Plugin: WP Facebook Open Graph protocol » FB still take a different picture

  • Resolved Tekeli24


    Hi Chuck,
    I have problems and I couldn’t solve it.
    Can you check please for me?
    When I check on facebook debug tools, it shows me right picture which is I want.
    But when I tried to share button to Facebook, it takes a diffrent picture.
    I saw your comment on plugin’s support page, you says that Facebook
    prefer takes bigger picture and as you see on that link , my picture is bigger
    than it.Actually may be you can’t see on the right side profile picture is bigger.But it’s original size is nearly 2500x1900px. But that small picture is bigger than 200x200px too.
    So what can be a problem?
    I want to use like with pictures from the post, not a diffrent picture from elsewhere .
    I don’t want use a stabil picture function. So according to my writings can you tell me please;
    Shoul I tick “Force Fallback Image as Default” box?
    Should I remark a featured picture in my post or plugin takes automaticly??
    I tried all combinations, but didn’t work.

    The plugin is giving FB what it’s supposed to be giving it. Facebook is choosing to pull a different image in the page source that’s not in the open graph tags – probably because your image doesn’t meet the minimum size requirements (200px wide and high)

    FB changes their stuff constantly so maybe they’re doing that now when they see a bigger and wider photo on the page instead of taking the smaller one you’re suggesting them use in og:image tags.

    All I can say is the plugin is doing exactly what it’s supposed to be doing.
    I would suggest having a larger featured image or something that would fit their image ratio recommendations better than the 300×187 you have.

    Thats all. I tried to resize a picture 320×200 px than refixed on FB debug tools.
    Actually picture’s original size is 640×400 but in page,it is 300×187. Thats why picture size must be more than 200×200 px on page.
    Thanks again Chuck! 🙂
    P.S: you looks like a Hollywood Stars 😀
