Simple Facebook Connect
AutoPublish - Image not being sent (8 posts)

    When i publish to fan/profile page through admin area - Only the description and title of the post is shown. No image is shown at all.

    So whether its autopublished or just button clicked in admin area to publish - neither display an image?

    See here for result: https://www.facebook.com/WildChildMedia/posts/402483436437302

    However, when "liking" the post, or sharing the post on facebook, images are found not a problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you for making this incredibly easy to use plugin!

    I have exactly the same issue, the image is not being sent to Facebook at all. My first two posts worked fine, and the image was transferred, but no longer.

    Are there any special instructions for post thumb in Facebook? Size, format or typ of image?

    Just wondering -- do you have featured images set for the posts that aren't displaying images on Facebook?

    Never mind. I just starting using the plugin and I see exactly what you mean! I'm having the same problem and I ALWAYS set a feature image.

    The very first post published to Facebook with an image, the following two didn't.

    Yeah featured images are on.
    My current workflow has been changed to:

    attach image
    publish (with no auto-publish feature)
    copy and paste link (see if meta info shows)
    if no meta data - goto facebook dev tools to refresh meta info
    reshare until it works

    This plugin is the only one ive found that does add all the meta info correctly, it just has a few small little problems to fix - some i guess could be a problem on facebooks end too

    Yes, I also believe that is has something to do with the Facebook Open Graph protocol...something is "glitching".
    I also installed the extra plug for this open graph support. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-facebook-open-graph-protocol/.

    Simple Facebook plugin did not work without it, so I downloaded this as well. But featured images are only showing for the forst 2 posts made.

    I hope someone can figure this out, I am not familiar with FB api.

    Thank you. :)

    Yes, me too; images, so far, not being included with post. I also think (???) it may be some issue within Facebook as does chrizze.

    I have this issue as well. Has anyone had any luck getting the featured images to work?
