OG Image for Forum Topics (Support Topic)

Recommended Posts

Hello, it seems this may not work if attachments are stored in Amazon S3?  It did not work on Facebook for me and I got this message:

What to do next?  Thanks for your help.

It shouldn’t matter where the image is stored, as long as its accessible and not outdated. 
I can’t really debug this from a screenshot though. Have you tried to hitting the “scrape again” button as mentioned in the instructions?

@opentype

Would you be open to changing it so that the 'share' image remains hidden and that it's added when using the new topic/edit screen? i.e you attach the file when creating a new topic/ or are editing a topic, you click to add a custom share image and then the image remains private on the site but can be seen via social media.

Question:

 

Would this work if I added an image to a topic but had an auto RSS import connection to Facebook? Meaning it auto posts the from the RSS feed new items.

 

Or is this only when you manually share the URL?

Haven’t tested it and don’t guarantee it, but auto-posting should also see the Open Graph data when the Facebook crawler looks at the page. So it might work.

OK so I added an image at the top of a topic. I ran Facebook debug to scrap again. I posted the url to the topic manually and not using the RSS and still it is posting the og:image from the settings on the meta for default.

 

Anything I should look at?

Also RSS feeds to facebook dont show the image either

It has nothing to do with the content of the post. It looks at attachments only.

What did the Facebook debugger show? What is the URL you tested?

As stated above in my post I did it BOTH WAYS. Manually and RSS and the post HAD an attached image at the first post of the topic. As matter of fact your super topics mod catches it with no problem. Also stated in my post above, I already scraped with FB debug.

And I asked you about the results, since I cannot see them myself since you don’t provide a test URL. You need to help me help you. Or we are stuck at “it doesn’t work”. I am unable to narrow down a potential cause this way. It works for everyone else except you. So something must be specific to your installation or the way you are doing this.

That is the results..... So not sure exactly what part is getting lost in the translation

Technically it would be very difficult to insert a feature to customize the featured photo url?

“Difficult” is subjective and hard to define, but there are no plan to add this to this specific plugin, if that answers your question. It’s simply by design. (and therefore affordable)

Hello, I have sent you the URL of my platform that was shared with twitter through MP

The plugin is working and the image URL is correctly added to the page. But your server blocks the direct access of the image (Status: 403), so the social media service cannot use the images.

Do not bother answering, I have already identified the reason for the blockade. At the httacess level I removed the extension of the photos I use on my platform.
