David -

One other thing to try. If there are multiple images on your blog, FB will pull several of them and allow you to choose which one to display (before you post). When you add the link, the image should appear below, as well as arrows on the top left corner of the image. You can scroll through these images and see if the one you want is among them. Hope this helps!

it will look like this:

David, have you installed Yoast SEO? There are a couple of others, but I'm using Yoast so I can speak to it. It allows you to specify images for FB and Twitter because each has different ideas on what they consider the "ideal" size. This forces it to use that image. The other thing to remember is that FB caches things like images attached to articles, so it may take a while for the changes to appear, but Yoast has been my best bet for getting the image I want to appear with article links.

Thanks, Veronica -- I think I understand what you mean -- I have to log out, then go to the home page and (in my theme) it says "Read full story". I copied and pasted the URL but still to no avail. There's obviously something I'm not getting!

David,

I had that problem too when I first started my blog. I had to include the "Continue reading" function, click on it, then copy and paste the URL. It works every time! Hope this helps.

Hey WP users -

I regularly post my blog posts on Facebook by copy/pasting the URL of the post into my FB status. For months now, the "featured image" is not showing up on the FB post, but instead my banner photo or another image from my home page. If you understand the question, I'd appreciate some help!

i'm just joining this group today - I have lots of questions for everyone! I have a Wordpress website and blog and am needing to update everything! I will ask lots of specific questions for sure - just wanted to say "Hi" today. 

Comment by David Price on April 14, 2016 at 7:34pm

Hi Everyone.   I know this question has been asked a lot before, but from you all's experience what Premium Wordpress theme do you recommend?  I have tried some free ones and you know you get what you pay for.   I want a main static home page but within that static home page I want to post my latest blog post, and what pluggins do I need to install to make this happen?   Thanks.

I am new to this Wordpress Group - and I love reading the questions and suggestions.  This is one of the most responsive, directly helpful groups I have been in.  

Thanks everyone for really trying to help.  I am not Wordpress or Tech savvy, but am trying to learn and grow too.  

Thanks - I really need your help & support & encouragement!

It really depends on which merchant processor you use.  For example, we use paypal on our sites and they host our secure pages. If you are just getting started with it I'd suggest them  easy to setup and you get your money pretty quickly and if you go with the paypal standard there are no monthly fees
