Hello, How do I configure my logo to be the image used when sharing the website on sites like facebook? Currently facebook only wants to show images that are on the index page... but does not show my logo as an option. Thanks!

I'm not sure what you're talking about. How can I duplicate the issue so I can see what you're talking about. (maybe even a screenshot will help)

I want to make the thumbnail picture be my logo instead of the graph. Hope that helps... let me know if further explanation needed.

I know exactly what you're trying to do and I may know of a little trick to get what you want.

From your WordPress admin, navigate to:

Appearance > Editor > Header (header.php)

and then just after the initial

tag add:

``

Of course changing out the appropriate info. What this does hopefully is load the image for Facebook, but it remains hidden and non-intrusive on your site.

Thanks, Bryan
