    Sounds like it could actually be throwing a PHP error for you, which would be very difficult to troubleshoot without access to your site.

    If you would like me to confirm, activate the plugin, go to the settings page and scroll down to the very bottom of the page as far as you can. Then take a screenshot and link it here.


    Here is a screenshot.

    Thanks. Yes that kind of proves my suspicions. I bet if you view the source while on that page you’ll see an error right at the very end.

    Unfortunately there isn’t much I can do to help. I can’t replicate that issue here (it’s working perfectly fine for me on about 30 sites). But I’d be interested to know what the error actually says.

    If you have the inclination please share that with me. Maybe it’s be something obvious I can fix. Otherwise no dramas.

    I recommend at this time you find an alternative plug-in for handling the Facebook open graph meta stuff.

    Good luck.

    Here is what it shows if that helps. I think I copied from the right point. This is a minor thing, I don’t post on FB much, but since it kept putting old images in, thought I would see if I could change that. No big deal.

    I don’t know if is a related issue, but in your screenshot I can see the image path is ‘medium’. That’s obviously not going to work. The full path toy your image would be something like

    Put in the full image path and it’ll work just fine. And don’t use quotes like you have.
