Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well. I have seen quite a few posts here on the forum about not being sure, or feeling comfortable using WordPress. I have begun creating some videos that may help out. I will continue to add videos as I get them made. These are really basic. I will dig into some more of the nuts and bolts of WordPress in future videos too, but here are some videos to get you stared with WordPress.

You can also find all of the videos here. WordPress Help Videos

If my site has been hacked, what should I do?

Comment by Catherine Graham on September 24, 2016 at 9:11am

Several members of another group suggested I post my problem here to get connected to lots of help/advice. I am transitioning from a full-time teaching position into health and wellness coaching while completing a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program....and I also have a family that needs my time. Coaching is already picking up steam, and I'm getting requests to speak to groups, so I know I'm headed in the right direction, but I don't have time to get my website up and going. Frankly, I just won't have time to deal with any time soon and would prefer to have someone else handle it. I did get a domain name and tried to get started with WordPress, but that's where it ended. I need to get SOMETHING up, and I don't need it to be fancy, just professional and functional. I don't want to overspend, I just need it done. Help?

Hi David - I am certainly not the expert and have had to learn by trial and error. I have WP post to FB automatically when my post goes live. Most of the time the pictures that show up on FB are correct, although a few times the wrong picture has posted. I don't know if this solves your problem or just creates more, but I love the auto post function. One less place I have to go to get my blog out there.

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!

Comment by Veronica Flores on July 25, 2016 at 7:28pm

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.

Comment by David Durham on July 25, 2016 at 6:59pm

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!
