WP Facebook Open Graph protocol
[resolved] HELP! thumbnails & excerpts not showing on FB (5 posts)

    Last week I transferred my wordpress.com blog to wordpress.org. Facebook shares are my major traffic source. My Facebook shares on wordpress.org are not showing a photo or the first few lines of the post.

    I've been getting around the issue by going to bitly and manually sharing the code from there on Facebook. This generates a share with a photo and excerpt from the post. However, I need to get this fixed especially for readers who want to share directly from the post.

    This wasn't a problem on wordpress.com. The wordpress.com people suggested I install your plug-in, which I did. It worked for a day then stopped working. The wordpress.com people suggested I contact you for help.

    As you can probably tell, I don't know code. But if you tell me exactly what to do, I can follow directions. Please help!

    have you used the debugger? https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug
    without your url it's kinda hard to help.

    Chuck, sorry. I'm new here and relatively clueless. My URL is http://everydayepistle.com
    I haven't used the debugger, but will try it. What does it do exactly?

    Okay, I tried the debugger and it says "Parser Mismatched Metadata," which means what? Or better question is what should I do to fix it?

    because the id "168589376525706" you have in admin section isn't an admin - that's a page. it's telling you you have a bad ID... take that one out of admin field and you should be fine. 100001690824093 is fine cause it's tied to Aimee personal profile.
