Facebook sharing and [image] tags


#1

When someone shares something to Facebook the images show in the post as [image]

Example:

Is there a way to strip these?

That is by design. One thing I have asked @techapj to look at is having the largest image in the post be the associated OpenGraph / oEmbed image for a post. This works for the first post already (e.g. when you share a topic) but not when you share a reply.

Found this thread after searching. I think what @visiontim is saying is that the text “[image]” should not be appearing in oEmbed descriptions. In the Facebook post he linked, there were three of them. I think these placeholders should be omitted.

Exactly, thanks for checking.
