I apologize for continuing to be annoying, but I've been using this topic to report the difficulties I have in managing the community without this essential tool.
Our forum is a community of independent travelers, backpackers, hikers and thru-hikers. Among our members is this couple from the post below, both have been in the community for over 10 years. They have traveled almost every trail in Brazil and not just the short trails, they have traveled the main long distance trails of the country, some of them more than once.
To publicize their topics and other participants we use our social networks that are very well shared and bring half of our traffic today. See in the image below what was the photo that the system chose for us to divulge the inspiring adventures of an elderly couple practicing long distance trails.

How can you post this post with this featured photo on social networks?
They have just arrived on the road and are doing this post, you and we are tied hands without being able to program it on our Facebook page. If someone shares this in your profile, this will be the photo that will be released.
What did I do before to solve this problem?
I entered the IPB TAGS editing system and manually placed the og: image tag.
What happened and why do not I do it?
Because I realized a lot of time later using this method, that the tag system created a bug causing multiple pages to repeat the meta tags.
I was advised by you not to use the tag system for this purpose anymore. To delete all the tags you had included, leaving only one tag on the main page.
From there to here I did not post the content of the Forum on our Facebook page, just the content of our blog.
This is a real account of a real problem that makes day-to-day management of content disclosure in social networks impractical. If there is no intention to include a resolution to this problem in the next versions, could not then create a plugin so that the page administrator could customize the featured image, just including it in the meta tags?
