Facebook Thumbnails

Recommended Posts

I am trying to control which images from my website show up as the options for the Facebook thumbnails when my website is shared on Facebook.

I am using the open graph protocol, entering the following code into the Header section of my custom code section in Pagelines:

<meta property="og:image" content="http://MYIMAGEURL" />

When I refresh the Facebook cache of my website (at developers.facebook.com/tools/debug),  I get this error message:

"The 'og:url' property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags."  


Not sure where I'm going wrong!  Thanks for the help!

I highly recommend this SEO plugin by Yoast: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/. It comes with OpenGraph settings where you can add the Facebook thumbnail image that can be used when your site is shared on Facebook.


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

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I'm sure this is just user fatigue...but where is the setting to delete the Facebook button in the Splash section of Teamwork? You'd think it would be in the Splash area, but it seems
      to be hiding elsewhere!  You can barely see it... I didn't even notice it until I changed the image.

      When trying to activate the Facebook Plugin, using the Bootstrap Theme under Platform 5, the following Fatal Error occurs:
      Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' in /wp-content/plugins/pl-plugin-login-facebook/libs/fblogin.php on line 35
      If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated...

      Hi there!
      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!

      Can someone explain me how to create them? I tried a lot but don't know how to realize them...

      Hi, I'm trying to show thumbnails on aggregate pages like category, archives etc., and hide thumbnails on single post pages. I have searched the Pagelines forum and followed some of the instructions given to other users with no luck. Below are two links, one is to a single post, and the other is an archive list. Right now the thumbnails are turned off in the WP postloop. 
      Both pages are on separate templates, and I tried setting the single post page to loccal and it still seems to keep the thumbnail option as a global setting.

      Thanks for your attention,
