How do I add a Facebook Thumbnail to each page?

Recommended Posts

chirag1amin

Hi, I'm currently using Platform Pro, and I want to find out how to add a thumbnail image to my page, so that if I link to the page from Facebook or similar sites, the thumbnail is automatically picked up. This was working before with the Pagelines Leaf Image being picked up by facebook automatically if I posted my website URL on a wall, however since using the following code to remove the Leaf, this no longer works. #cred { display:none; } Ideally I would like to associate a thumbnail to the page without actually displaying it on a page, can this be done? or can you suggest another solution?

Are you making an image your "Featured Image" in each of your pages/posts? I believe Wordpress/Facebook pulls it from there but I'm not 100% sure.

Yes exactly that, I see how for your page facebook pulls this out, but it doesn't seem to be doing the same for my site. ww.drinks-lab.com

Yes, I read that same thing (what Jenny mentioned about the featured images). I've seen different fixes for it (this one is for the Facebook Like feature image: http://blog.ashfame.com/2011/02/wordpress-plugin-fix-facebook-like-thumbnail/), but I think this fix is the one you're looking for: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-avoid-no-thumbnail-issue-while-sharing-post-on-facebook/

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
