    Hello

    I have installed the plugin and everything works as I would expected but when you comment on a post, it goes to FB with a random picture, NOT the featured picture referencing the post.

    Is there a way of changing this, or adding a static picture of fixing the problem.

    I have the same issue. I really need the post featured or first image to be used.

    I can not find a solution for this and I am hoping that someone has one who can offer it to US.

    I'm having the same problem. If someone "likes" the post, it will show the first image, but not the "featured" image which is what I want, and how it's supposed to work.

    If I go to facebook and enter the link, it will not post either of these pictures but rather the second or third image, without the option of selecting the first or featured image.

    Also, if I look at the facebook linter, it does show the featured image.

    Can you point us to some URLs that are exhibiting this? Thanks

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for helping with this...if you look here http://www.alphablossom.com/add-pinterest-pin-it-button-wordpress-website/ you can see the problem.

    If you hit the like button, but facebook box shows (to add a comment) with the featured image, which is set but does not display on this page.

    If I then go to my wall to view it, it's posted immediately but the thumbnail shown is the second image on the page. Sometimes it's the first, but never the featured.

    Let me know if you need any more info.

    Thank you,
    Tony

    @alphablossom:
    This is the image that you want, right?

    Yes that's correct. It's set as the "featured image" in the post admin panel.

    Well, that's right...but here's how it looks on my wall:

    Very strange. I tried on my wife's and it shows the same on her wall as on mine.

    I was wondering if it might have something to do with the cache so I tried with a different browser and it still showed the wrong image.

    On a separate topic, it would be a good idea to have a default image option for say, homepage, so that you can choose which image shows when someone likes your site.

    thank you again for looking into this!

    Matt, I should add that the first image is the same as I see when I click the like button on my site...it's the second one that appears on my wall that is incorrect.

    Odd. Can you hover over the timestamp->right click->copy link address, and paste it into here?

    This is from the timestamp on my wall...I think that's what you're looking for?
