Documentation for Permissions?

ShareOn.png
I have guest user permissions set to Read Only, but shared posts do not display the topic content
Is there documentation available?
3.2 with latest ShareOn, pro-silver/proflat

For some topics it works as intended, but some post as above

Thank you for your brilliant work, btw

make sure that guests and bots are allowed to read/see topics.

Thank you for the quick response
Guests have Read Only permissions and Bots have Bot Access
Logging in as a Guest, I can see the topic
On the affected topic, as in the screenshot, it seems the extension is hitting the log in, not the topic
On further investigation it seems only one topic in three forums has this issue, which I can work around
The issue looks like it has more to do with how Facebook is previewing the link than how ShareOn is sending it
On the shared topics that I manually link from Facebook, the preview looks just like it would had I shared it with ShareOn, but on the one I screenshotted, Facebook gives the same broken preview
The same broken preview happens on a forum Guests cannot see, so I suspect the issue may be that that topic was moved from a Guest restricted forum previously, and somehow that is breaking things

phpbb 3.2.2
php 7.2.2

Bot has "Full Access" permission (just to rule out permissions) to parent category and forum = issue persists.

I've also applied Full Access permissions in the same way to the Registered OneAll group just to see if that would help = issue persists.

Just as I posted above:

For clarity: guests and bots are allowed to do far more than read/see topics and the issue persists.
(edit: I have since returned permissions to Bot Access/Read Only - see next comment)

I did just discover that if I change the ShareOn permission to "Post" (Extensions >> ShareOn >> Settings >> ShareType) Facebook is able to read the post contents.
