Sharing DMS sites on Social Media Networks

Hi to all,

 

Some clients of mine shared my site on there FB pages. However, I noticed that Facebook is picking up some images from my Rev Slider. Is there any way in DMS to maybe choose what images to use when sharing your website. For example I would have expected the header section would take priority as it is more likely to contain a company logo? Maybe there are plugins for this?

 

Cheers, James

Hi Danny,

 

If you click the facebook share button at the bottom of my websites home page (www.jawdesigns.co.uk). A facebook pop-up dialog appear and it grabs a default image which is from the rev slider on my home page. Ideally it would be great if it grabbed my logo design from the header and not images from my rev slider as I would prefer to use a logo when sharing my website.

 

Therefore I was wondering if there is anything I can set in DMS to say 'use this image when sharing on social media networking sites like FB and Twitter'.

 

Please see screen grab attached for an example of what I am seeing when I press the social FB share button.

 

Thanks, James

OK James, I have PM'd a colleague as I don't use FaceBook so I can't see if this is a bug or not. As soon as I have more information I will reply here.

      Hi there,  I've been trying to add social media links (facebook, linked in, twitter and Google + to the top menu bar on my site, http://www.stjohnsmith.ca/ but have had no success at all.  I've even tried to add font-awesome icons and it just shows a blank square.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

      Has anyone been able to get the Social Media icons to show up in Impulse or SocialLinks sections?  I read the Reference and gave it a try.
      "Icons
      Enter Icon/url pairs. Format each entry on a new line, in the format:
      facebook http://www.facebook.com/pagelines
      twitter http://www.twitter.com/pagelines
      Icons are displayed to the right of the section."
      I've tried replacing "facebook" with a link to an icon.  I've replaced the pagelines Facebook link with mine.  But neither shows an icon or link.  I've also tried putting them in brackets.  I must have the format wrong.
      Can you help?
      Thanks!

      Hi guys,
      I have been trying unsuccessfully to center my social media bar that I embedded into an "embed" section. Regular text and links are centered based on the alignment setting of the section but I can't get the social icons to center. Any clue what CSS snippets could do the trick?

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date
