Adventure blog/picture insert
I have a picture that keeps coming up on my blog page that is nothing what so ever to do with it,,..it is an old picture. I wish to delete it and insert a picture of myself from my files. I’ve tried but can’t seem to manage it. Thanks in advance
Correct account: Yes
The blog I need help with is: cbridges95.wordpress.com
I just visited your blog and I’m not seeing any images. Does it appear on the homepage or any specific page/post on your blog? Can you share the direct link to the page/post where we can see it?
The picture is coming up on my fb page when I post a blog. I will try and send you the piece…

Okay. So it’s the image that appears when you share the post, https://cbridges95.wordpress.com/2021/10/07/its-an-adventure-right/, to Facebook, correct? The Facebook link you posted just redirects to that post.
When I share that link, this is the preview Facebook generates for me:
When you share a link to your site to Facebook, Facebook checks your site for an image to use in the preview. If there’s a featured image, it will use that, else it will use any suitable image in the body of the post. If the post has neither a featured image, nor an image in the content, Facebook will use your site icon instead, and that’s the image that’s being used in this case.
Are you seeing a different picture when you share that post on Facebook?
That is the picture I really wanted to come up when I post to fb. So far the ‘old’ one is up on my first for a long time blog…If I post again I hope that this picture comes up rather than the old one of folk in India…!
Also I did put in the next part of my blog but now can’t find the fb link to post it as done???I am learning with all this it seems complicated but it’s likely just me..

As long as the particular link hasn’t been shared before, it should pull up the current picture, yes.
However, note that Facebook does cache these pictures, and sometimes a preview can become stuck in their cache, re-using a previous link’s image instead of fetching a new one. Should that happen, go to this page:
Paste in the URL you’re sharing and click Debug. Then on the next screen click the button that says Scrape Again. That will force Facebook to check the post/page for a new image.
We have some more details on this here:

I’m not sure what you’re referring to.
Do you mean the link that you post to Facebook?
The link of the most recent post on your site is https://cbridges95.wordpress.com/2021/10/13/its-an-adventure-right-3/. I got that by viewing your site, clicking the post title, and copying the link from my browser address bar.
But if you want to share new posts to your Facebook page, you can also set your site up to do that automatically. Details here:
