    Reply To: “Page Not Found” when sharing post on Facebook, by byronsyee

    Just wanted to clarify the solution.

    When you initially submitted the link on your WordPress blog, Facebook “scraped” the page and there was an error, what is commonly referred to as a “404 Page Not Found”. It could have been on your site or FB but FB last scraped the page on Nov 22.

    While the page was eventually corrected (there are some minor errors according to the tool), FB only returned the most recent scrape of the page which was Nov 22. The FB tool allows for the page to be scraped again. When I did that, then it properly read the page with the title and images.

    So in the future, if you get this problem, go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/ and see what FB thinks about the page. Look at the date that FB last retrieved the page. You have the option of asking them to look at it again and if everything is right, then it should appear like you want.

    Good luck.
