The site is http://services.bg/

I am testing the Social Meta tag and there is something weird.
Facebook is not fetching image.

but .. http://smo.knowem.com/ is showing and fetching image.

When you open site info it shows OG tags and image path.
When you type image path into browser, it gives 404.

I have not edited .htaccess. They are as by install default.
So where could be the problem?
I see in .htaccess everthing is redirected to index.php
Tried to disable those redirects, but still no go!?

While inner pages like category page http://services.bg/uslugi/domashni-uslughi-home-services.html
Are fetching default logo image correctly.
I think the plugin has a bug.

Hello Stefan,

At first, i advise to check meta tags by open graph tool: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/

It shows now that your website doesn't have 2 required fields: FB:Admins and FB:App_id.
You need fill it correctly and after try to fetch info again.

Thanks Curtis,

As far as I know FB:Admins and FB:App_id is for if you have an entity on Facebook like page or app.
But I do not have such.
I just want to have a preview in a facebook post. What you suggest is that every website on the web has a FB:Admins and FB:App_id. I doubt it.
While I rarely find websites or links that do not generate preview on facebook post.

As I wrote earlier
http://services.bg/uslugi/domashni-u...-services.html link is generating preview.
http://services.bg/ is not generating preview.
So this has nothing to do with FB:Admins and FB:App_id
It is clearly a bug.

I have also noted problems with now passing pictures over the last week or so, I ran your test option and found the following errors, although I do have admin and keys entered in to my plugin. You can see what the error is but I d not know how or why or how to fix it ?

there are add times it will work but many times, the image is not available or shows?

you can see the preview result shows no picture, this has only just started to happen and the error code ? I have no idea what it is even?

Object at URL 'https://www.mysite.com/home-and-garden/kitchenalia/s-a-railways-pewter-tankard-355.html' of type 'product' is invalid because the given value '117848488233832' for property 'fb:admins' could not be parsed as type 'fbid'.



EDit - as below mine has started working again ? odd

Oddly enough, now it is half working!

Root URL working, but it didnt work.

Default redirect to default region not working, but path to img is present. I check it first time.

Hello Stefan,

1. I've told about fd:admins and fb:app_id data, because the facebook mark it as important parameters. You must create a app, but you can to don't use it.
If website doesn't have this data, your website will have problems with parsings other data.

2. Facebook must update own cache to fetch new images from each url. You can use object debug tool for it to get a new info.
