  • My logo is showing square on Facebook

    Hi,

    When I post something to Facebook that contains a link to my forum, the logo is squared to only a section of the logo, please see the attachment. Is it possible to display the full logo or even make a square image to be displayed for Facebook but not have to change my forum logo.

    Thanks in advance,

    Paddy :-)

      Thank you Riasat. Do you know how to implement this into vBulletin?

        This would require customization which is something you may ask for help with over on vbulletin.org, the modification site.

        Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

        Want help modifying your vbulletin forum? Head on over to vbulletin.org
        If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          Lynne is correct- this is a topic for vBulletin.org- but- I literally have this in my clipboard from something I was working on earlier.

          Just put this code in your headinclude template- obviously change the URL to a URL of your own custom, square, Facebook image, at least 200x200 pixels in size.

          Code:
          <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/radio/images/misc/flag-photo.jpg" />
          If you have any questions ask on vbulletin.org.

          When you test it you need to test on a new, never before shared page. Old pages already shared were already cached by facebook.

            Hi Joe,

            Thank you very much. This worked a treat!

            I just installed a new vB4.2.2 yesterday and with your help I was successful in making a square og image to be displayed on Facebook :-)

            Regards,

            Paddy
