Regale 2 - Facebook share image

Gaby Doom

Oct 07, 2014 04:25PM EDT

In album view I show a cover image with the social links on top. If I click on the facebook icon to share an album, in the opening facebook share dialog there is for some albums no image to see. Mostly the facebook share image seems to be the album cover image but in a small square format. How can I myself select and set the image which is shown in the facebook share dialog window?

Many thanks for any response.

Addional infos:
I load the url of my koken album which has no image in the facebook share dialog into the facebook debug website (https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/) and press the “Fetch new scrape information” button. What should I say, it repairs the facebook share image. So I’ am happy now.

Gaby – good to hear. To answer your question in case others find it, Facebook is in control of how the image is formatted when it appears on their site. We simply feed them a big enough image for them to eat, and the rest is in their hands. Their cache, too, can be a little quirky, so if you see an empty thumbnail try deleting the page URL cache by using the debug tool linked above.

Hope that helps!
