    [​IMG]

    Hi on the left side when you post a link it should look like this, big image on the left, on the right it shouldnt look like that where the image is small.

    It suddenly happends to me a week ago and im not sure why? i cant remember installing or doing anything in wordpress so i dont know why its changed?

    It looks to me like facebook isnt picking the image properly even though i debugged it etc..

    Does anyone know why my image is small and not the size of the left one?

    Thanks

    Ive found out its something to do with facebooks debug tool, i had a link that had not been debugged and it showed up fine, i then debugged it and tried again and its ended up posting like the image on the right.. So not too sure whats going on buts its something to do with the debuggin

    Ive narrowed it down a little more, when inputting the link you wish to publish into your post, when the link shows with the thumbnail, if there isnt another thumbnail to choose from the link wont display properly.

    So it needs to have multiple thumbnails for it to work? Very strange

    It appears facebook is selecting an 80x80 thumbnail rather then the original size image? Which makes no sense because there isnt visually a 80x80 thumbnail available for it to pick.

    The 80x80 does exist though its located in wpcontent upload folder, but i have no idea how it was created as all i do is upload say a image of 500x500, then all of a sudden in wpcontent i have multiple sizes of the image available, one being 80x80 which is what facebook keeps picking/choosing as my link thumbnail..
