Can I remove the image that appears when I share my post URL?

    Hi there!

    I just sent a post to a colleague in LinkedIn and noticed that appeared the image of my website logo as a featured image together with the link. Attached screenshots with the issue.

    Do you know if there is any way to avoid sharing an image whenever I share a link? The image shared is my website logo. Also mention that the URL shared is a post that doesn’t have a featured image.

    Best regards,

    This is still happening.  We post links to our blog on LinkedIn and the image that’s selected for the post is my profile picture, rather than the featured image for the post.

    See examples of the social post vs. what the page looks like with a featured image.

    The expectation is that the featured image would be populating the Open Graph image.  Running the facebook share debugger, I get:

    • Missing Properties. The following required properties are missing: og:url, og:type, og:title, og:image, og:description, fb:app_id
    • Inferred Property.  The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.

    By default, Publii adds the featured image to an opengraph meta tag. Do you have the “Generate Open Graph tag” option enabled in Site Settings -> Open Graph location?

    It is set, yes. There is a fallback image defined as well.

    I inspected the source of the post page as well as the home page — there are no open graph attributes / tags or whatever present 🙁

    I toggled the Site Settings -> Open Graph setting, generated the website, and compared the output .. there was no difference. Running Version 0.38.2.
