You do not see the (preview) image when sharing a website in Facebook?
If you share your website link on Facebook, it may happen that no picture appears or an image you do not want appears.
In the following steps, you’ll learn how to change the image for the shared link.
An example of a malfunctioning image problem:
2. Upload image to get URL address
If you already have a picture you want to see when sharing a particular page, you can now upload it to the online store (free of charge) to get a URL. Click here to upload the image: https://imgur.com/upload
Then right-click the image and copy the image URL.
3. Edit HTML code (import of URL address of image)
Insert the URL of your image into the code. Insert the URL of the image instead of “URL-ADDRESS“.
4. Enter the code into the HTML header of the page.
In the top bar of the editor, click on “Pages” – “Select the page where you want to change the sharing image” – “SEO page settings” and “HTML header code“. Paste the code and publish the changes.
TIP: If you have Premium Services (Standard or Profi) purchased with Webnode, you can embed HTML code on all pages of the site. This will mean that the same picture is displayed when you share a site (which page does not matter) on your site.
Click “Settings” – “Website Settings” – “HTML Site Header” at the top bar of the editor and paste the code and save it.
5. Continue to Facebook Sharing Debugger
On the Sharing Debugger page, enter the URL of your site and continue with “Debug“. Below is a preview of a shared link on the page. If the image has not been updated, use the “Scrape again” option.
Done: When you now share your website, an image will be OK 🙂
Warning: When you upload an image to a storage, make sure the image has no spaces in the name. Remove the spaces and replace it with a dash.
If you upload a picture with a space in the title, for example, under the name “My Logo” Facebook will not take your picture and it will not work.
So when you upload a picture, rename it, for example. to “my-logo“.
Do you also need to change the text in the link thumbnail?For change of URL of website you can use this code
<meta property="og:url" content="https://www.imageurl.com"/>
For changing the “Title” use this code:
<meta property="og:title" content="Title"/>
For changing of Description use this code:
<meta property="og:description" content="Description"/>
TIP: Add the Instagram and Facebook icon to the top left corner of the Webnode website. Read More in the tutorial: How to add a social network icons (FB and Instagram) to the top of the Webnode website?
