Thread: Facebook thumbnail tip!

  1. #1

    Facebook thumbnail tip!

    Hey!

    Thought i would share this to you for people that uses facebook.
    If you have ever shared a listing on facebook and have the same problem as i did, that facebook would use alot images(i had 17-22images different images on from first page).
    It was slow and annoying.

    I found a great fix for it!

    We will use 1 standard image (if you want that) for the startpage. This way it wont look thru all the listings. Saves the time and you have the ability
    to decide what image you want to have for your site.

    If you link a listing on facebook and you have lets say the banner plugin on the sidebar with some ads in it facebook will see them to even if they arent related to the listing.

    If you add this to your website facebook will only see 2 images. The "standard" picture and the main picture in the listing.

    Be sure you check what image setting you have, if you have PreviewBox or LightBox

    PreviewBox
    -templates/<your template>/tpl/header.tpl
    Find
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Add this code under the code above
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.

    LightBox
    -templates/<your template>/tpl/header.tpl
    Find
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Add this code under the code above

    Hello Wei,

    You can create condition on file hrader.tpl for line:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    use this code:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    but if you want to use logo only for home page you should use:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    save and check again.

    Hi Viktor,

    I added the following code in header.tpl file
    Clear cache and everything, add my page www.domain.com in my facebook and it still show 3 pictures of the listings shown on my hompage from recent listings box.

    Found this line in my header.tpl

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Then I add the following code below that line:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Did i do any thing wrong?
