    I am having this problem where none of my images are appearing as thumbnail options when I try to submit posts to social media outlets (Facebook/Twitter). Any suggestions?

    Make sure the images are hosted on your site (i.e., you uploaded them via the media gallery or a post edit).

    How are you trying to submit them? From their end, or via a plugin of some sort on your end?

    Link to your site?

    Also, make sure that you disable any hotlink protection on your server as well.

    Kenneth: here is a link to my site: http://blog.worldgatellc.com/

    The images are hosted on my server.

    How would I check for the hotlink protection?

    Thanks

    If hotlink protection is not activated on your server, you would see an image below from your site:

    OK, so it’s not hotlink protection.

    Any other idea’s of how to fix the problem since it’s not the hotlink protection?

    When I post to social media, I copy that paste the link to that blog post. Could that be a problem? I am not using any social plugins to post to social media.

    When you paste that link on Facebook did you wait a while before clicking “post”

    sometimes there’s a delay before the image shows
