Used to be able to select an image if there were multiples.

 

Please advise.

Hi there, if you put the url into the Facebook debugger - https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug you should be able to see all the images the share link is trying to pull and select/correct.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

If the seo plugin wants you to select the image can't you do it through there? Are you using jetpack for the standard open graph setup?

I did the selection above thru the SEO... and the feature imgae did not show up... and did not show up inside of the facebook debug.

I checked that it is indeed attached to the post.

 

Not using Jetpack... should I be?

Using the social SEO extension with All In One SEO Pack is just another step for a client...

 

Personally I think its just too much/overkill to have EXTRA title, description, caption and feature picture in EVERY post to have to put in

in order to share onto social sites...

 

I've always went to the full post and selected FB... click and post onto a FB page/profile. Voila! and that is how I usually show the client to do.

 

Please advise.

So... I've checked another DMS site that uses version DMS 1.1.2 . and there is no issue with the feature images sharing to facebook.

 

and Facebook can see the feature image in the debug panel...

 

I have two sites using DMS 1.1.4 shows feature image inside website... but NOT sharing with Facebook... and FB debug does not see it.

 

Please advise again.

If sharing to Facebook works on one and not another, then the likely issue is something you have added to your site, be it custom code, scripts or plugins. To resolve the issue, you're going to need to disable all active plugins and remove all custom scripts, hooks and CSS/LESS, then see if this resolves your issue.

OK.. found the culprit... it is the Pagelines Pro Tools Plugin...

 

When I activate it... facebook does not see the feature images...

when I deactivate it... facebook does see the feature images...

 

I disabled the CSS checkbox and Lazy Load and everything is works.

 

I have section cache checked and search.

 

FYI... the other site that is working with DMS 1.1.2  installed does not have Pagelines Pro Tools installed.

Can you enable CSS and see if the thumbnail is still shared, as it we need to find the culprit, it could well be LazyLoad.

I believe it is still being shared...

From toggling back n forth with chrome and firefox... (firefox does not refresh cache as fast)... so it was tough going back n forth to see what was happening..

 

I have css checked... now..

 

FB seems to be seeing it.

      Hi
      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,
      John-eriK

      I know this does not have anything to do with Pagelines directly but this is happening on my PL5 site.  At the bottom of my blog posts I have put the Facebook Comments Plugin and it works well but when people are leaving comments they are the same for every post.  Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this so the comments are for the post they are on.  Does that make sense? Ha!
      Thanks for any ideas folks.

      Hi there, 
      I'm looking to use the Powerloop option to display my blog posts on our homepage – however, I only want the title (in a smaller font size) and the Read More button to display. Is there a way to do this? We had achieved it on a previous version, but I'm not figuring it out now (and don't know if standard settings have changed since then). Our homepage is www.frakture.com . Forgive me if there is a super simple solution! ;-) 
      Thanks in advance!

      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.

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt
