emailed posts and posts on facebook do not show images

  1. Hello there!
    i was wondering whether anyone can help me on this matter.
    for a while now i have been posting on my blog and sending emails with my daily posts.
    i recently publicised my posts to facebook as well, but now my posts are showing up with no images on my facebook page or on my emailed posts...

    i don't know what has changed.
    the images are vital for me because that is the essence of my blog.
    i went through the settings and couldn't find an obvious source for this change...
    any help would be much appreciated

    thanks,
    mydoodleaday

    The blog I need help with is mydoodleaday.com.

  2. If you use a custom excerpt, then your feed and email will allow an image. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/the-excerpt-function/

    Imbalance will also display your custom excerpts so you can have control over what appears on your front page, category and archive pages as well.

    Please also know that we have no control over which images Facebook chooses to display. See here for details Staff have provided:

    • Only the first five images uploaded to a post (direct inclusion/gallery/slideshow) will be sent to Facebook. The images size has to be at least 200 x 200 pixels.

    • To select which image will be used for things like Facebook Publicize, you can use a theme that supports featured images. If a featured image isn’t set or your theme doesn’t use featured images, then the code tries to pick the first image in the post or page. If no image is found, then the blavatar is used.
