    Has anyone a solution for fixing the issue of pulled posts from a website not load the image (thumb nail) first time, website is wordpress so a plugin would be great, i`ve had a search around but haven't found a fix?
    Tried Yoast but still had the same issue!!

    Yes, I was having the same issue, I thought it was just me, but I found a trick. I copy my link to fb, wait a few seconds, and enter my link again, it brings the image

    All the time with new websites. You could use debugger https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ where you can check url before posting. Or, like jimjasongo says, when url loads without thumbnail delete all, refresh page and on second try it will work.

    I was hopefull of a mass way to do this, sent a feature request to MP developers looks like they will bring in a fix as you've suggested were the link is loaded and if it doesn't pull the image it cancels the request answering the FB 'are you sure' yes then reloads the link the 2nd time with feature image

    I had that issue way back in the day. Just refreshed the page a few times or waited a little bit and eventually it picked it up.
