Sharing links bug...


So I go to "share" MY POST on Facebook and get really weird results.

1. The Thumbnail images which I have to choose from are "Susa's Avatar," a pic from "Justbec's Signature," and the "Official Runboard Stamp" in the first post. No choices from MY POST.

That's one choice from the .ak_msg_post_table img, one choice from the .postlistpostbody img, and one choice from the .ak_msg_post_signature_block and none of these choices come from the post I made.

2. The title of the post being shared is from the .ak_msg_post_table for MY PROFILE and not from the actual title of the message being shared which would be in the [sign in to see URL] area.

3. The description for the link being shared comes from the TRD "<META NAME="Description" CONTENT=" HTML tags instead of the "[sign in to see URL], .postlistpostbody" area which contains the actual post!

All of this makes the process of really sharing a post on Facebook really difficult given the very limited editing capabilities they provide...

Re: Sharing links bug...


Before it gets said I am pretty sure the CSS classes are not the actual variables or data entry names or whatever they are called, I just used the CSS class names to show how messed up the data being pulled by Facebook is compared to where the data is actually located or styled...

Re:


When Justbec posted her board on Facebook a couple weeks ago, it posted my board's picture which is in her sidebar. She couldn't get a picture of hers on there.

Re: Sharing links bug...


Check out this weirdness. %23 is just an urlencoded #. They should be interchangeable, but for some reason, they're behaving differently on Facebook's end.

Below, the 1st pair links to the topic number, and the 2nd and 3rd pairs link to the post numbers. Our share links use the latter method, but again, I don't see why this would matter on Facebook's end.


1st one: No title
2nd one: Right title
[url][sign in to see URL]

1st one: No title
2nd one: Wrong title

1st one: Wrong title.
2nd one: No title.
