  • [CMS] Facebook not pulling correct images

    When someone shares a link to an article on Facebook in 100% of the cases wrong image appears, i.e. Facebook pulls whatever images he likes. Does anyone have this kind of problem? Usually, the intention is the first image in an article to be displayed.

    When checked with https://developers.facebook.com/tools/lint/, the following is displayed:

    Warning

    Required Property Missing og:title is required
    Required Property Missing og:image is required
    This also happens when you check against vbulletin.com, example: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/cont...bile-Publisher

    Warning


    Required Property Missing og:title is required
    Required Property Missing og:image is required

    Are the open graph tags correctly added?

    I am having a similar issue. What I would think should happen is that when a user hits the "Like" button, the user should be given the choice of image to post on FB. I'd love any insight on how this works.

      Yeah, something has been missing in vb since FB changed some of its code, before, it was able to browse many images in the page, now, nothing.

        Do you see this functionality on any website using the Like button?

          Recently, I guess not. It was a really useful for what we are doing, but it seems like its more related to changes on the FB side than the vb side...

            It would be nice if facebook would take the first image added in an article and not a smiley or a profile image from a user.
