Publicizing to Facebook page

  1. I have publicized my past blog posts to a select group by posting them to my facebook page, as well as a private group page. I set up the posts so that a thumbnail and excerpt showed in my facebook posts. In my last Facebook post ( http://wexfordwanderer.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/the-war-of-independence/
    http://wexfordwanderer.wordpress.com/201...) this did not work even though I used the same process. There was no excerpt and no thumbnail, just the link back to the post on the blog as above). Has something changed in the settings or am I now doing something wrong? I am not interested in setting up the automatic publicize feature; I just want to be able to post via the Facebook icon at the bottom of the page. Thanks for your help.

  2. Ahh ... Facebook images yet again.

    See here for what Staff has to say please:

    Unfortunately, we have no control over the images that Facebook chooses. We really only send them the URL of the post, and they hunt through that for the excerpt and images to include. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/avalaible-facebook-thumbnail-issue?replies=7#post-1000734

    Sometimes this will help but not always

  3. Thanks for your quick reponse. So it's a facebook thing - quel surprise! When do you use the debugger - before you make the post?

  4. I'm sorry but aside from providing the links to the instructions provided by Staff above I cannot help you.

  5. O.K. thanks; I sent a Help request to facebook, but I doubt anything will come of that.

  6. Best wishes for a happy ending.
