Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] Unable to publish on FB if post has an image (4 posts)

    I keep getting the folowing message when I try to publish a post with an image in it. It works fine on posts without images. This happens wether I configure a default image or not.

    API Error Code: 100
    API Error Description: Invalid parameter
    Error Message: picture URL is not properly formatted

    Your img tags in the post are using relative links instead of fully qualified absolute links. This is confusing the parser, because WordPress only uses absolute links normally.

    Use absolute URLs, so that Facebook can correctly parse them.

    Great, that was it. I entered that post while the site was still on it's DEV domain name, that's why I changed the URLs for relative.

    Thanks again for your great support!
