    SFC is grabbing random images from my sidebar widgets when there is no picture in the newly posted article...help?

    I'm having the same problem, except with me, it's pulling the images from my footer's "social icon" section. I didn't have this problem with SFC pre v1.0.

    I always thought SFC used the FB application icons for the post.

    SFC isn't grabbing those images, Facebook is. Facebook uses an image if one is specified, but if there isn't one, it will search the page and just pick a large one.

    To get around this, I made a new place in the SFC Settings page where you can specify a "default" image. SFC will put that in there if no image exists in the post. This lets you specify a default image URL to always be used when no image is in the post.

    Thanks Otto!

    I need to pay more attention to those settings. Which I'm sure you would appreciate! That took care of it..

    Now having strange problem posting to app. Publishes fine to profile page but not to fb app... sure I'll be able to resolve it though.

    Also, I really appreciate your work on this. The new version (or should I say first version) does seem more stable overall and love the slimmed down number of plugins.
