Recommended Posts

When I share my site on Linked in or Facebook, the image is cropped strange. Is there aw way in Pagelines to set up a featured Image as the the image that Facebook or Linked in shows when you share the site? Thanks, Danielle

Danielle, FaceBook, Twitter and the social media systems generally take the 'featured image' or thumbnail image from each post. To set this, when adding an image to the post, you'll see "Use as a featured image" next to the button that says "Insert into post". Click Use as a featured image. That applies the image into the post as a thumbnail for the social media sites to pick up. Once each post as a featured image, your social media links will look better. I use a plugin called Leenk.me to deliver new posts to Facebook and Twitter. It gives me the ability to further style the way the posts will appear on those sites. I suggest you use a square image of reasonable size. I use up to 400x400px. The size displayed in your blog page varies based on the type of post display and your settings in Dashboard > Settings > Media.
