[Resolved] Wall Thumbnail not correct. Random is used instead

  • Hi.

    It´s me again but with a problem that was not bothering me since it does not interrupt the posts on the wall.

    I know its a cosmetic issue but it worked in the past: the posts imported to my wall have a complete different image from the one avaiable on the the original post. Looks like a random image is used.

    Check it: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002120851969&sk=wall
    See the thumbnail and then, click to read the post to see the correct image.

    Can you tell me how to fix it?

    Best Regards

    Have you added theme support for Post Thumbnails in your theme (outside of WPBook). If so are you setting a thumbnail for each post? If you don’t set a tumbnail Facebook vists the URL and picks whatever image they like which seems random to us but I’m sure they have a system.

    But the image is not a thumbnail. Is a normal image from the post.
    I may have choosen the wrong term.

    When I started using WPbook it grabbed the first image on the post and set it as a thumbnail for the Wall. Now it isn’t happening.

    Or am I wrong?

    Version 2.1 switched to using the post thumbnail instead of grabbing the first image. Therefore, you must use post thumbnails (see link above) if you want to set a custom image. Otherwise Facebook will do as it pleases.
