Posting website link online - default image

Recommended Posts

When I post a link to our website to social media, the same (old) product image is displayed. Is there a way to change this somewhere?

I recall a conversation on these forums that is quite old (a few years) that discussed what the social media scanner needs in order to identify what exact image to use.

That conversation dealt with a specific social media platform - I don't remember which one.

For specific info on a per-product basis, this plugin may be of use. Be sure to ask the author about its capabilities:

I have this in my element.meta.php file. (I use the large image in my skin code.)

<meta property="og:image:width" content="800" />
<link rel="image_src" href="{$PRODUCT.large}"/> 
<meta property="og:image:url" content="{$PRODUCT.large}"/> 


<meta property="og:url" content="{$VAL_SELF}"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="product"/>
<meta property="og:title" content="{$PRODUCT.name}"/>
<meta property="fb:admins" content="xxxxxx"/>
<meta property="og:site_name" content="{$CONFIG.store_name}"/>
<meta property="og:description" content="{if isset($META_DESCRIPTION)}{$META_DESCRIPTION}{/if}">
