No image of the article in facebook share

Post by promad17 » Thu Feb 04, 2016 3:20 pm

Hello to everybody,
I have a joomla website with article news and photos. I tried different plugin for sharing articles on facebook but I have always the same problem, No image and No article text is attached on facebook pop up window.
I read around and I understood that it is better to disabled Gzip, I did it and now I only see the title of the article.

Is there somebody could help me?

Thanks in advance

Facebook uses Open Graph. So you have to add this og tags to you html output.
You can use a plugin like http://extensions.joomla.org/extension/phoca-open-graph to achieve this

Thank you very much for your answer. I downloaded and installed the plugin but I don't understand if I have to set something or just enable it.

Could you help me in this last step?
Really thank you :)

After you installed it, you have to enable this Plugin. Go to Plugins to do so.
There are some settings, but usually they are fine as they are.
