Are you trying to share your article? Could you PM me your URL? I ran into a similar issue...on the All In One SEO there's a social section at the end of your posts. There, you can upload photos for sharing to Twitter, FB, LinkedIn...etc. It has to be a certain size though (FB prefers 1200x630) and Twitter is different.

I use these sites to see how my articles look on social media:

Facebook: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/
Twitter: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/post-inspector/

Just copy/paste the URL into their spaces and it'll show how the article looks as if you were to share it. Again, could you PM me your site? I hope this helps

Hey Alyse,

Here's a tutorial to help you fix this: if you are using the plugin that Kyle suggests using in his training... the All In One SEO pack.

If not, then apparently Yahoo has something similar.

Hope you find this helpful.

If you look through the tutorial you will see it has all to do with social media... but... in order to follow that tutorial, you need to be using the All In One SEO Pack plugin, which is why I said what I did in my original comment.

Unfortunately the training is 4 years old and outdated and the SEO General settings are not there.
Is there an updated module available?

Very true Liné, I did notice that when I too tried following it. However, the updated version I found on YouTube.

Okay, so you have motivated me to update old training that I did, to show you the newer settings:

Possibly some type of security is blocking your images, I would need a lot more information than you’ve provided to check on that.
