Hey everyone, got a question here Wordpress related or so I think- just done with my new post (http://brainfoodlist.com/easy-guacamole-dip-recipe) and when trying to share to Facebook it brings up an image from a nother post (http://brainfoodlist.com/chocolate-and-the-brain). Please does anyone have an idea what's the source of this problem?

I tried changing the Featured Image on the right column of the edit post page but still shows that chocolate image when wanting to share on Fb.

the thing is a new feature seemed to be autmoatically (or not) added and thats on the bottom of this new post appears a referral to the chocolate post ("You may also like> and the link to the otherpost) where this photo is coming from- so seems like something is Involuntary "puling" this specific photo when choosing to share on FB.

You might need to change your settings within the Automatic FB poster. There should be an option as to what picture is posted to FB. If it randomly selects the picture, it obviously won't be the right one.

I know, I tried that. it gives an option of choosing the image when postng to a FB page but not when posting to a perosnal profile timeline

Hi Ornit, suggest to work the other way round, try changing the name of the "chocolate" image and see if it shows up again... wish you luck:)

HI Ornit, i checked your chocolate pix link is http://brainfoodlist.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/00001.jpg - my earlier suggestion was to reference this (i.e. 00001.jpg) to your choice Avocado pix - simply copy another Avocado pix and name it as 00001.jpg. This is just a work around solution:)

I think I see what you're saying. I just reloaded my gucamole photo naming it 00001 and still didn't work. if you check the component of the chocolate from inside the share post window you will see that Fb is still taking/remembering that photo by its previous name - "chocolate2"

it seems like FB doesn't really care if I change anything but correct me if Im wrong or still missing something here, and thanks for the help!

Hi Ornit, you may try posting your issue to Live Chat for help. I always like work around and then if it does not work, i work over:) Meaning i'd delete the Avocado post and rewrite it or i rearrange the order of my posts, that may help. There could be a conflicting code lurking somewhere, but let that be, cos you are going to reorder your few affected posts. Good luck!

Reposting and going live chat were first 2 things I've done haha.. anyway althoguh it's a bummer I think I'll just have to let it be for the time being and hopefully I'll come across a solution to this with time. Thanks again Fred.
