Support » Fixing WordPress » Featured Image URL redirects back to home page

  • I have a problem with publishing my posts to Facebook where the featured image is not being displayed. I am using Jetpack and have also tried a direct URL paste with the same result.

    The og:image tags are working but the odd thing is that when you put the URL it gives into a browser it redirects back to the blog home page. If you go into the media manager and check the URL it matches and is correct.

    Now, if I go back into the media manger and then click on “Edit more details” and click update or open the permalink and then the image it seems to fix the issue.

    I have absolutely no idea on where to start to fix this issue?

  • If you are already using WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin, then go to your SEO » Permalinks options page. All you have to do is uncheck the box next to “Redirect attachment URL’s to parent post URL”. This will redirect users arriving at attachment pages

    Hi, yes I am using the Yoast plug in but that option isn’t ticked?
