My site is https://writethefight.com, and I am using Chicago Pro. When I publish a post, I share it to a Facebook page and my Twitter account, and on Facebook, the image shown with the post is my header image. How do I set the featured image as the image shown with Facebook posts? Thanks.February 3, 2020 at 10:39 pm #234979
@ejackson: Hello there,
I tried sharing few of your posts on facebook and the image shown on the preview was the featured image. Can you let me know on which post you are having this issue?

Yes, it works fine if you use the share buttons on the post or if you copy and paste the URL directly into Facebook. But I am automatically sharing using Jetpack, and that is when it uses the header image. I bought the theme in October, and every post since then has had the issue. That’s five posts (plus the several test posts I created and deleted today as I was trying to figure it out).
Something of note: I share my posts to Twitter automatically as well, but the feature image is what gets shared on those. Only Facebook has a problem.
Here is the latest example: latest blog post

Actually, I figured it out. I needed to update my Facebook app Graph API. Just letting you know in case anyone else has that same issue.February 4, 2020 at 11:02 pm #235119
