    Hi,

    I’ve successfully set up image and description inside plugin (green alert Well done! You have a default Facebook thumbnail set…) but when I press Preview button when editing homepage it displays same image but completely different description from totally different page/article. This one is also shown on Facebook when I post URL. I have no idea how to get this equal or simply fix description on page to get correct one to show on FB. Could you please help me somehow? Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    I deeply apologize for such stupid request. I’m not developer nor web specialist and I don’t use this platform to ask for some help very often. However, in this case I really don’t know what to do so I add now some more detailed info, if you want/can help me I’ll very appreciate it, if not, I can understand it.

    My site URL is http://monodrama.sk/

    This is a screenshot of correctly set image and description (of course I’ve read manual/help topics, especially the one telling the content for description when homepage is shared on FB is from tagline):
    http://monodrama.sk/wp-content/uploads/scrnsht_plugin.png

    This is a screenshot from homepage edit, button Preview:
    http://monodrama.sk/wp-content/uploads/scrnsht_homepage_edit.png
    Different text comes from this page (the very bottom right item):
    http://monodrama.sk/program/

    FB sharing debugger shows the same text/description as it is on homepage preview (not tagline):
    https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/?q=http://monodrama.sk/

    Thank you for your time and effort.

    Hi thurzz,

    So looking at the source I can see you have multiple instances of the same open graph tags. Just view the source and search for og: and you’ll see.

    This means that Facebook’s scraper could be picking up the set of tags you don’t want it to.

    So the the actual problem you have is that you’ve got duplicate open graph tags being output on the page. This means either your theme does it by default, in which case you don’t need a plugin, or you’ve got two plugins doing the same thing.

    You’ll need to work out exactly what the case is yourself (try disabling plugins or switching themes as a process of elimination), as that’s something I can’t help with.

    Good luck!

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your help! I fixed it according to your suggestion and now it works fine. All the best.

    M.
