Wordpress tips – Featured image not updating #Blogging #Wordpress

Many thanks to Gee for these useful tools 👍😎

Have you ever noticed that sometimes you update your blog post featured image in WordPress, but when you share it on social media, it still shows the old image…

Annoying, isn’t it!

Here are two super easy ways to fix this for Facebook and Twitter.


Facebook: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object/
  1. Insert your post URL.
  2. Hit ‘show existing scrape information’.
  3. Check the picture.
  4. If wrong hit the ‘fetch new scrape information’.
  5. The picture should now be correct.

Twitter: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator
  1. Insert your URL.
  2. Hit preview card.
  3. The picture should now be correct.

Note: If you have problems with this not working the first time, try waiting 5 minutes and then retry.


Happy blogging 🙂
