Facebook images and post title problems.

  • When sharing on Facebook, the featured image does not display. The only information in the preview is the website URL which does link to the correct post. When I run it through the FB Sharing Debugger I get the following:

    The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.

    I have tried plugins: Add Facebook Share Thumbnail + Meta; Thumbnail Fixer for Facebook; and YoastSEO. Thumbnail Fixer provides a preview function when editing the post which looks great. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work.

    Where do I go from here?

    Thanks.

    Forgot to include website: http://www.landrethonline.com

    Thanks.

    Hi Gerry,

    One of those plugins should work.

    The only issue is that your page is cached by Facebook.

    So you will need to clear the cache before checking again.

    Here is where you can do that

    https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

    Let me know if that doesn’t work.

    I’m just now doubling back to this. The culprit was the SSL certificate. I contacted tech support at Bluehost and they corrected the problem in just a few minutes.

    With FB Thumbnail Fixer, everything is working OK. I’ve had to run all of my posts through the FB debugger but it went quick.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Gerry,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Yes I can see how the SSL would affect the URL’s recognized by Facebook.

    Glad to know you figured it out :)
