By: OJ Wed, 25 Sep 2013 04:37:18 +0000 Just a quick observation about this whole Social Media thing. I find it quite odd, and it could very well be my age, but, don’t you think that it’s rather silly sitting in front of a computer being sociable on social media. I think that that’s an oxymoron.

By: mjau-mjau Wed, 10 Apr 2013 06:14:58 +0000 Please please can you post things like this in the forum? Facebook caches page-content so it wont change immediately, and besides, we can’t possibly diagnose this without a link to your website.

By: musicgod91 Tue, 09 Apr 2013 19:56:32 +0000 Hello.
I used this
post to rename the imagevue.php (for facebook sharing link) to another , let say to test.php , I duplicated the imagevue.php and named the file test.php , i also go to iv-includes/templates/default/index.share.phtml and edit the code to this :

<meta property="og:url" content="item->getPrimary()); ?>” />

but when i share on facebook it stell showing in content of link imagevue.php not test.php ….
I do something wrong ? ,

2. as you see in the picture, when I posted on Facebook shows only link , without thumbnail ….
that would be the problem ?

By: Daniel Wed, 27 Mar 2013 21:59:56 +0000 Hi, i would like to open this discussion again. I would like to set permanent thumbail for all social media sharing, but cant find a solution. I find your suggested code a changed it, but it does not work in latest version of IV. Maybe we can open new forum thread for that.
Thank You.

I don’t remember where I was or what the subject was when I read to edit that file. It was a response to a forum question or a response to a comment made in a documentation section.

By: mjau-mjau Fri, 08 Mar 2013 02:55:16 +0000 I believe I answered this by e-mail also, but …

Facebook uses your siteTitle and description for the text when sharing the page. However, it also caches data from old results, so even if you changed the siteTitle and description, it was caching text that it retrieved from the same link earlier. To force Facebook to re-check the website, use their debugger:

Now, you can see when sharing that page, the resulting data is correctly what you have added to the Imagevue config:

This is from Imagevue settings and an issue related to Facebook cache. I am not sure why you have edited line 173 of the

By: Paul Livingston Wed, 06 Mar 2013 22:41:13 +0000 Hello. I have two test galleries up. One is at and the other is at

My concern is Facebook. With the Hubbard one, I clicked the Facebook button to share the link on my FB page. It worked but what appeared next to the thumbnail was “Imagevue Gallery” then under that was displayed. And under that was “Another Gallery from

Ever since then, if I just type that url directly in a Facebook comment box (not using the Share button from the gallery page), Facebook still displays the Imagevue information. I can delete that information and it won’t show up in my post. But, if someone shares that post, the Imagevue information shows up again wherever that post was shared.

Note: I did NOT use the Share button on the Test2 gallery and the above situation does not happen in Facebook. Just the url displays in the post.

I searched the documentation and forums here and followed what I found … I edited line 173 of the file and changed the information in Settings > SEO. Those were all I could find and neither had any effect.

Before I buy Imagevue, I’d like to know this can be fixed. I want my information displayed, not Imagevue’s. How can I fix this?


By: mjau-mjau Mon, 18 Feb 2013 06:43:04 +0000 I can see that … However, let me explain how it works. “halfblack.png” is a background image set to repeat. It is not set at any specific height. It will simply wrap around the initial line that the widgets have prior to the native widget JS initiating.

Now, whatever widgets you wanna put there, they will often load iframes and tons of interactivity. They are set to display at position:absolute, meaning they will just ignore everything else in the layout (including that background) and just overlap over or under the button. Unfortunately, this means you cant wrap that background around the iframe that pops up … If anything, you can remove the background so at least it does not seem incorrect.
