Social Images not working

  • Hi, I have the same problem. I entered the image url in frontpage and default settings but the image used when the post is shared isn’t the one I selected.

    When I check the post on https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug, the image that I selected isn’t displayed either.

    Would appreciate a help to resolve this!


    Hi cuestablanco,

    I went back to check the image URL that I keyed in. I noticed that when I pressed ctrl-v, the URL that was pasted wasn’t the one that I wanted. So I changed the URL to the one I wanted and it works.

    So the problem has been resolved for me. I hope that it works for you too. Double check your URL in the frontpage and default image.


    mine is not being displayed neither in the source code the is no OG: image tag

    url ?


    By the looks of it, you are not using WP SEO for the og: tags, but another plugin – possibly the Facebook plugin ?

    So this is not a problem with WP SEO, please ask for support in the right place and close this topic.

    of course i am using wordpress SEO by Yoast

    and i already configured the og tags with the img url, but for some reason they are not being displayed.

    is there any way to attacht a screen shot to show you?

    Yup, just upload the screenshot to any of the image websites available and link to it in a post. (for instance: http://snag.gy/ )

    And I realize that you are using WP SEO, but have a look at the source code of your website: the og: tags are not within the header block generated by the WP SEO plugin. I.e.: the og tags are currently *not* generated by WP SEO.
    I can also see in the source that you are using the Facebook plugin, so this is the most likely source of the og tags at this moment.

    I repeat: this is not a WP SEO issue, please close this topic.

    now i realize that facebook plugin and Wp SEO are conflicting in the OG Tags

    is the any know solution?

    I don’t know, you may want to google for it. This article may also help.

    i already read that article in the past, thanks

    Also i read some responses in this forum about that the same issue was known and reported about 10 months ago and they still waiting for a solution from facebook nor yoast.

    Considering that in your case, it’s the facebook plugin which is sending the output, I suggest you ask there.
    Otherwise, switch to WP SEO for the social tags and I kind of think you won’t have a problem anymore….
