Love the ext, thanks for all the work on it! I'm struggling to get an image to show when I share a link via Facebook. An example is just sharing the main page of the forum. It shows the verbiage great but no image.
I know its user error and not the ext, how can I set a default image and where would I save that image?
Thanks a ton for any help/guidance you can provide!

In the settings, you can define the default image to use on pages without images.

When you first click on Facebook, there will not be an an image. This starts a process at Facebook to retrieve and cache the image. Facebook place a temp image and then uses the image designated. Facebook checks your page on reloads to see if a different image should be used. Depending on settings, it will load the image designated.

is it possible to set images of "Social Sharing" dimensions different for mobile view and normal desktop view.
Example: same Place's images, 24x24 px for mobile, 32x32 px for desktop normal view.

Hello all, first what a really nice useful mod :shock: 8-) perfect to get those forum pages out in the world of social media :!:
I am using the mod within my posts but find they are situated a little too close to the text within a topic, is there anyway to move the line of social media icons down a few breaks ? or maybe have them below the posters signature, it would just seem a little more tidy and less intrusive etc.
Thanks for any help
Cheers
mrix
