  • Resolved mglraimundo


    I noticed that once I publish to Facebook for the first time, subsequent manual republishments will always be clones of the first one, regardless of having altered the excerpt, author, categories, etc…

    I’m using WP-Cache, but I think it’s not related since the issue persists even after I clear the cache content.

    It’s also annoying since I can’t seem to find where this ‘cache’ file is located in order to attempt a manual deletion.

    Still, great plugin you have here!

    Hi mglraimundo,

    I can’t reproduce this on my test system (no WP-Cache, though) right now, but I will have a look at this tomorrow. Facebook caches images, but not the text, so at least the post excerpt should change. Do you use other plugins that could have an impact here?

    Well, as far as caching plugins go, WP Super Cache is the only one I use.

    I just tried to clear the cache contents and then deactivate the plugin. The issue remains.

    I’m also out of ideas in this domain…Not a critical bug, since most of the times I proofread as so to avoid the need of a manual republishment, but it would be nice if you could take a look :]

    Oh, I just realized the source of my issue. As you said, Facebook caches the image. Moreover, it also caches the link description (where the Author and Categories go into). So that’s my problem right there. The excerpt is updating fine (as you said it would).

    Sorry for the misdirection, your plugin is working just fine :] (though I wonder if there’s anyway to send a trigger to Facebook as to rebuild that link cache?)

    Thank you,
    Miguel Raimundo

    Well, that is good news – at last for me, so I don’t have to fix another bug 😀

    I don’t think it is possible to tell Facebook to clear its cache, but so far, only the image, author and categories are concerned. The title, link and post excerpt update as expected.
