Why? The developer can not put it?

Which specific files does this extension make changes to?

Facebook shares are not looking right.

If you don't have these social media crawlers as "bots" in your bot list, then they are treated as guest.

I enabled read only access for all guests and added Facebook to the spiders/robots

But it didn't help. How do I verify that all of the necessary settings are correct for this to work? Which files? What should they say?

Does anyone have this working?
Can you share screenshots?

You could try the faceCrook debugger by fetching the latest rendition of a site/page, caching can sometimes be the issue.

I ran the facebook debugger but was unable to see where on my PHPBB I need to make changs.

My Phpbb is installed on my website http://DoubleTapper.com

at http://DoubleTapper.com/forum2

Please let me know what specific changes I need to make for facebook shares to work properly.

Your og meta tags are working correctly, the extension is working as intended... there is no need to modify any files. :)

On your forum the Facebook share works fine. except, you will need to either allow guest to download attachments, or allow bots to download attachments for the image to display.

Can you show the screenshots/instructions of how to make the required changes to allow guest to download attachments, and allow bots to download attachments for the image to display.

All the posts including attachment have debuted and the Facebook share is always loading the wrong image. If I copy a URL without using FaceBook share, it loads correctly image attachment. I think something is wrong with this extension.

Rename socialshare-master to socialshare
Thanks!

That fixed it.

It turns out that several of the extensions I downloaded were misnamed by their authors and had to be renamed and directories had to be manually created for them to function, instead of them just being unzipped and uploaded to the ext directory.

Do developers do this intentionally to initiate the newbies?
Please follow the instructions listed with the extension, it would have created the correct directory.
