    Hi,

    when i want to share a link on facebook. facebook picks the wrong og img. I think due to my wordpress theme it creates another image which is smaller then the 200x200 minimum requirement by facebook but facebook chooses this one over the image which IS big enough?

    How do i get it to not do this? I debugged it but its not correcting it

    I'm pretty sure Facebook shows little arrows under your image when you post a link dude. You can cycle through available images like that before you submit the post.

    Yes they do, however the arrows are not clickable as it only finds the one img

    It happened to me too and it was because of my theme :( I don't know why, but it couldn't provide all the images available to choose the one I like it. I changed my theme after couple of days trying to figure out how I can fixed this problem. In those days, I post my link together with a picture, not just the link and wait for the picture. I know it's not the same, but that was my solution..

    Are you setting facebook OG image in your site? Or is FB selecting the OG image its own? Set the image that you need using the code.

    You want the same image on all the pages? Or you want to set each url a different og image? You would need a php script to do that, or you may try avoiding other images in the page, so FB picks the one that you are looking for.
