    Hi everyone, I've already googled my problem but the fixes I've found are still leaving me confused and with problems!

    My website is http://www.mixedmartialhelp.co.uk up until a few days ago, everything was working fine. I would set a featured image, publish my post, and the featured image would be the thumbnail used. Now when I publish, I'm getting icons like the Twitter logo, or my RSS feed icon.

    Let me know if you need to know anything else, thanks!

    Facebook has always been finnicky with pulling their images properly. Your best bet is to define the image using OpenGraph tabs. I've seen a few plugins that can do it if you search for OpenGraph.

    It's still quite finnicky even when defining it as Facebook will still show some strange results sometimes, but when posting it you can use the arrows inside the thumbnail when posting the link to Facebook to choose the image as well.
