Getting WordPress Post, With Image, To Appear, With Image, On Facebook.

by Anura Guruge


Basically achieving this
between WordPress and Facebook.

I want my WordPress posts, which invariably have an image,
to appear on Facebook, with the SAME image, and a built-in, clickable link.

Like this.

Just trying to paste the link to Facebook results in unpredictable results.

Often the image is NOT displayed or they display the WRONG image without you getting the option to select the right one.

It appears that you can fix it by using a Facebook developer tool. Use this link to get it. Now book mark it and keep it.

You are going to access that Facebook tool (called the ‘Link Debugger’) each time you want to post a link. A bit of an hassle, no doubt, BUT you will get the results you want. I have been successfully using it since yesterday and have done about 10 posts — all ‘OK’, first time.


This is the step-by-step process.

This is what you will get when you access the above “Facebook Developer” link. Paste your link into the ‘show’ trench and hit “DEBUG”.


fbdebug2

You will get this screen. Hit “FETCH NEW INFORMATION”.


fbdebug3

You will next get this screen. You can IGNORE this screen! For real. Now copy the WordPress post link AGAIN and paste it into YOUR Facebook timeline STATUS ‘box’. Bingo. Bob’s your uncle.
