Solution: Blog Images For Facebook

No Comments »

Hi Gang,

Having problems having your WordPress blog images show up on Facebook when you want to share a link to your latest blog posting? We’ve been scratching our heads over this one for a while now, since it was happening to us on our DzinePOD Facebook page. Sometimes it would work, sometimes not… and sometimes it would pull in an image from the sidebar.

We’re not altogether sure why this problem arises, but we are thinking that it may be triggered by updating to the newest version of WordPress. Perhaps it’s a cache thing…

Here’s a possible answer to fix this annoying problem.  It may or may not work for you depending on the theme you’re using and plug-ins, but there’s a cool plug-in called Facebook and Digg Thumbnail Generator. You will need to go to their website and download the files and manually insert them into your plugins folder. But, once you do that… all you need to do next is go into your WordPress Dashboard, then the Plugins folder and then activate the plug-in. That’s it! All done.
