    Hello and thank you for developing such a great platform/ theme. Sure. I could suggest a number of changes, and talk a bit about the frustrations inherent on learning to use a new tool, bu the truth is that the results speak for themselves: your theme and engine, has allowed me to make a beautiful, great-looking site for my fiends at http://www.mambocasting.com .

    I have a simple reques for feedback/ comments on how to improve the site, in particular the “clients” area- the company has hundreds of these, and I want to display them differently, as well as a better way to display the videos…. if anyone can suggest good solutions or plug ins that would be very much appreciated.

    I do have an immediate request, and that is that, whenever I share the site, it is randomly pulling pictures and non-related text to display ion other sites, say facebook or twitter. Can anyone tell me how can I set a set text and photo to display whenever I place the link to the main page?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ed!

    I suggest this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ – it enables you to set an preview image + custom desription text for facebook and google plus and you can use the “social” tab ( http://www.clipular.com/c/5678826713513984.png?k=2EpKGdnQl0mtbk_vvn_O5O2cfYY ) to change it for each entry (posts, pages, etc.).

    Cheers!

    Thank you for the tip, however…

    I have now tried three plugins:

    wordpress-seo
    WordPress Social Sharing Optimization
    and
    Facebook Thumb Fixer

    and none of them fixes this problem.

    I have set the plug ins to point to either http://mambocasting.com//Mambo-FB.jpg or http://mambocasting.com//Mambo-FB-200px.jpg

    and Nothing!

    Help!

    Hey!

    I’m not sure which plugin you use at the moment but it adds following code to the head section

    
    <meta name="generator" content="WPSSO 1.22.1G" />
    <meta property="og:locale" content="en_US" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Mambo Local" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://mambocasting.com/" />
    <meta property="og:title" content="Mambo Local" />
    <meta property="og:description" content="This is a Page excerpt. It will be displayed for search results" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="article" />
    <meta property="article:published_time" content="2013-04-04T23:13:40+00:00" />
    <meta property="article:modified_time" content="2014-01-22T19:52:43+00:00" />
    <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image" content="http://mambocasting.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Background-1-2-1200x630.jpg" />
    <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image:height" content="630" />
    <!-- og:image:1 --><meta property="og:image:width" content="1200" />
    

    and uses this image http://mambocasting.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Background-1-2-1200×630.jpg for the preview image. I suggest to use Yoast SEO – then go to SEO > Social, tick the “Add Open Graph meta data” checkbox, login as facebook admin and then set the description + image. Afterwards save the settings. Make sure no other seo plugins are activated otherwise they might conflict with Yoast.

    Cheers!
    Peter
