How to set Facebook Share Information ( description and image / thumbnail )

This guide will show you how to set the description and image which is shown on Facebook when your content is shared.  We have broken down this process into two sections, the settings for normal Wordpress pages and posts, and a separate section for LiveEditor pages

 

LiveEditor Page Facebook Options

To set the content that is shared for your LiveEditor pages when published to Facebook, follow these steps.  Please note these settings require you to have the SEO Options turned on inside OptimizePress > Dashboard > Global Settings.

If you are using a third party SEO plugin you should consult their options for Facebook share settings.

1. In the LiveEditor, go to Page Settings on the left side menu:

 

2. Inside Page Settings window, select "SEO Options" and scroll down to find the Facebook Title, Description and Image settings.  Enter your information here and save the settings and save your page.

3. Once you have added your sharing information, you may need to refresh the Facebook Temporary Cache (their temporary store of your Website information) to the latest information.

To do this, enter your domain in the Facebook Debug tool at this address:
https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

Once you run this through your page it should show the new information you have entered

 

 

Facebook Options for Normal Posts/Pages (OptimizePress Theme only)

If you are using our sharing functions on a post or page inside a Wordpress site running the OptimizePress Theme, you can specify the image and other information to be shared on Facebook.

Please note these settings require you to have the SEO Options turned on inside OptimizePress > Dashboard > Global Settings.

If you are using a third party SEO plugin you should consult their options for Facebook share settings.

1. Inside your Wordpress page or post, click on the Wordpress Tab 


2. Scroll down the page and look for the SEO meta box. This is where you will find the Facebook options to set the title, description and image for the content when it is shared on Facebook:

2a. If you do not see the SEO box below your content window, scroll to the top of the page and Click "Screen Options" and then tick the "SEO" box:



3. Once you have added your sharing information, you may need to refresh the Facebook Temporary Cache (their temporary store of your Website information) to the latest information.

To do this, enter your domain in the Facebook Debug tool at this address:
https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

Once you run this through your page it should show the new information you have entered
