I’m hoping someone can help me figure this out… I’m using the Metro theme for this site and love the theme. However, whenever we post to Facebook (either pasting in a link in FB to a page or post on the site) or use a social media sharing plugin from the site, a badly cropped thumbnail that is in the site’s header, or one of the images that appears on the homepage. There aren’t any options to select another thumbnail (or rather the option is there but no other thumbnails show).
Any suggestions how to make this more effective? Even when there is a featured image in the post, it doesn’t appear as an option to include in the fb post.
I’ve done a lot of research and tried various things but no luck so far. Feeling a bit desperate at this point!
Thanks for any help,
Are you adding featured images to each post?
Yes, for example, with this post:
When I post the link to FB, I just see a badly cropped version of the header image that is actually made up of words “Bringing clarity to a chaotic world”
I think it has something to do with the button code. You might want to try a plugin for this.
Thanks Brad, but what do you mean by button code?
The code you added which generates the button for Facebook? Or is it a plugin?
I’m just pasting the link URL into fb directly. (The same issue comes up if I use a plugin’s sharing function.)
allyson9 – did you figure this out? I’m also looking for a solution.
Never mind. I found on this post I can do it using Yoast.
