Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Featured Image not Showing Up on WhatsApp

  • Hi. I hope you are doing well. When I paste post URL in WhatsApp chat it is only fetching the Title but not the featured image or any image. On other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, there is no problem. Kindly can you help with that?

    After reviewing your site’s source code, it appears the data is correctly output. The only thing that stands out as a possible cause is the missing " from many of the meta tags.

    <meta property=og:image content=https://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/IMAGE_NAME.png>

    should be

    <meta property="og:image" content="https://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/IMAGE_NAME.png">

    This is usually caused by an incomplete minify attempt to remove unnecessary HTML. Please temporarily disable the minify feature and check the source code to see if the " are included. If you are unsure how to view the source code, please review this knowledge base article: How To View The Page Source of Your Site

    If the minify plugin isn’t causing the missing ", a conflict check will help identify the cause.

    Once the " are added, try sharing in WhatsApp again and see if the image appears. If it appears, contact the author or support team for the minify (or other) plugin for assistance retaining the " in the source code while using their plugin.

    Thank you Mam, it was due to the minify HTML in Autoptimize. I have disabled it and the featured image is showing up in Whatsapp. Thank you very much.

    I also have this problem. How can I disable the minify HTML in Autoptimize. Please I need help on this, thanks

    The problem is actually with W3 Total Cache’s HTML minifier which overrides Autoptimize’s if both plugins are active. AO without W3TC installed does not remove quotes when HTML optimization is on.

    Dontua; if you have Autoptimize running then go to settings -> Autoptimize and near the bottom of the screen you’ll see the “optimize HTML” option.

    Thanks @optimizingmatters. but its like I don’t have Autoptimize running cos I didn’t see it in settings.
    What is other possible solution please

    Afraid I only *know* Autoptimize (I’m the developer) Dontua, sorry. In case you have W3 Total Cache running, look for HTML optimization there and turn that off maybe?

    I disabled AutoOptimize’s option “Optimize HTML Code” and it has now added quotes around “og:image” – still doesn’t show preview on Whatsapp

    you’re inlining all CSS, untick that option and the preview will re-appear 🙂

    The preview now shows but not the featured image. Any other setting to be disabled?

    can’t say really, this might not be due to Autoptimize so try to confirm by adding ?ao_noptimize=1 to the URL to disable it for that request?

    Yeah – seems like it’s not linked to auto-optimize 🙁

    Can you please identify issue in this post due to which whatsapp is not showing feature image

    Maybe you could try considering using other plugin like all in one seo, it could help popping up the thumbnail. Yoast cannot pop the thumbnail for whatsapp especiallty for ios.
