Hi Laza,

Seems that FB has changed the API policies and when the FB button is clicked, the image is not shared anymore.

Does this has to be solved individually or the code of the skin has to be changed by you?

The same also with Photoblogger.

Thanks and regards
Henri

This has changed 2 years ago after the American elections. They have removed the so-called "link customization" feature - which made it possible sharing individual images from a web application - in an attempt to "fight back newsfeed manipulations". (As they said) They promised to offer some alternative solution but they did not as far as I know. It's good for their business anyway - people don't spend much time on external sites and they will share photos through Facebook.

Hi Laza,

Thanks for the reply. I solve the problem, but damn, FB is really.... (no comment).
It was working normally yesterday, but today I have been forced into the FB tool to add an icon, the URL of confidentiality and if my site was with a pro usage.

Regards
Henri

They gradually retiring their old API's, and link customization was removed in Facebook API v2.9, as far as I remember. So yeah it could have worked longer...
