Great ext!!
But when I share posts on Facebook, it uses this header image, instead of the image from my post.
Can this be changed?
I don't use Facebook and haven't a clue how it works and loads the image, so I really don't know.

Try this

OPEN

hifikabin/headerbanner/styles/prosilver/template/event/overall_header_headerbar_after.html

DELETE

<a href="<!-- IF U_SITE_HOME -->{U_SITE_HOME}<!-- ELSE -->{U_INDEX}<!-- ENDIF -->" title="<!-- IF U_SITE_HOME -->{L_SITE_HOME}<!-- ELSE -->{L_INDEX}<!-- ENDIF -->">

SAVE>UPLOAD>PURGE THE CACHE

The banner will no longer link to anything and 'may' solve this issue (or not as the case may be)

This will not solve the problem.
Facebook detects any image from the site you shared on facebook.

All you have to do is to remove preview from facebook while sharing the link.

I used "Site logo", and Facebook did not used that image.
It took the image from my post.

Try this. Disable the extension, Unzip the attached file, upload it to

hifikabin/headerbanner/styles/prosilver/template/event/

Enable the extension and see if it works (it should pull your original site logo image into facebook page) Please let me know if it works (or not) as I have no way of testing it.

If it does not work, disable the extension and delete the new file

ps, you need a proper extension to make proper sharing i.e page title , page description and image.

simply sharing a page will result in correct url but different image and description.

try this extension

Hello HiFiKabin,
good job, congratulations.
I would like to know if you can eliminate the blue border around the banner, if you tell me what files you need to change and how can I do it myself
