Hi Denise, 

I'm sorry to hear that. We'd like to look into this for you. Can you please share your blog URL so we can test it?

Thanks!

Sorry Denise, I was able to locate your blog URL and this is how it appeared when I previewed a Facebook post. It didn't revert to your homepage. Is this what you are referring to?

I looks exactly like that when I try to post it, and then it automatically drops the /blog.php and the link goes to the home page when you click on it. It is a major bummer because then people have to click on the blog tab to get to the blog.

Also, I noticed that it doesn't always see the picture of the new blog when you can choose a thumbnail.

Hi Denise,

I have tested this on my Facebook account as well and have noticed that if you click on the name of your site 'Courtesan Studio' your blog page will open, however, if you click on the link, you will be directed to your index (home) page



There is a bug right now that is preventing images from a blog post to appear on the FB thumbnails. Our engineers are looking into it and I would be happy to update you when I know a bit more information.
