Everytime i upload new image i have to change image URL?

for example, i uploaded new image named one.jpg, image url will be storyfb.com/image/one.jpg
then next day i upload new image named two.jpg, then i will change image url to storyfb.com/image/two.jpg

I have no idea what "whatsapp" is or does or what you are trying to do.
however, a url to an image has to have the direct link to that image in order to work.

<meta property="og:image" content="storyfb.com/image" /
is basically linking to a directory/folder named image. not to an image file.

Forgive me for being blunt but it might help if you turn your own brains on instead of complaining.

Various people have tried to help you, but you keep doing things wrong and when we point that out you don't respond for weeks or longer. No wonder it's been going on for so long.

Now, the most basic example like I explained multiple times now:

Code: Select all

<meta property="og:title" content="STORYFB.COM" />
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:url" content="{U_CANONICAL}" />
<meta property="og:image" content="https://www.storyfb.com/favicon.ico" />
If you want more options you need to look in to the posted documentation and examples.

Can you please calm down. There’s no kind of support in this forum. If somebody wants to help you they will, be respectful otherwise they may not.
