    Please read the documentation or click on troubleshooting button and you’ll see it must be due to missing rules in robots.txt

    Thanks for your reply.

    I did check that possible issue. I thought I had that tackled, but could be wrong.

    – I enabled it in your plugin.
    – I have the following robots.txt:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /clients/
    Disallow: /eigenhaard/

    UserAgent: TwitterBot


    Still no go..

    Could be due to the fact you apply for summary and/or photo card but not for summary_large_image.

    Each card type requires a submit to Twitter except from some card type that can be “bundled”.

    Otherwise give it a little time to Twitter’s bot to re-fetch your blog.

    Let me add something:

    I also use a plugin called NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster.
    This also posts to twitter, that plugin DOES include the image.

    So the back-end, images and rights should all be ok I guess?

    Thanks for your time, its apreciated! Merci 🙂

    Yeah yeah I give time but in this case I think your misunderstood what Twitter cards are.

    You plugin send updates to Twitter e.g everytime you publish something. This is not the same for Twitter Cards. Twitter’s bot have to fetch your website looking for metadatas, if correctly set Twitter will render the metadatas as cards.

    Markup is there on your website so the plugin works, so please check my previous answer and see if one of my points can solve your issue.

    Hope for the best

    Well, the twitterbot line in the Robots.txt is in.
    Images are below 1MB..

    Summary is validated, I changed your plugin to summary.

    Still no go..
    One thing seems odd.. Even when I change your card option from summary to Large, the validator does not change.

    No caching plugins are active.

    Why is this set to resolved? It is not 🙂

    I have found a problem with All in one SEO. Their Twitter:Card declaration is interfering with the card statement of this plugin..

    Now I have to find a way to resolve this.

    i have the same problem.
    it’s driving me insane 🙁

    Ok, I got the card to work now.. It seems that All in one SEO enabled Twitter:Card way down in the code. Had Hardcoded to “Summary” That is why the card change from the plugin JM Twitter Cards showed no effect.

    SO much for that issue.

    Now: lets try to find a way to tweet an image. But I now understand this had nothing to do with the twitter:cards.

    If any questions: twitter me @sanderbaks
