Facebook Feed - No Image in Post

Hi.

I added a Facebook feed for a page. It usually posts images. In the grid view of the feed, all the images load. However, when a post is tapped to open the individual post, the image is not displayed.

This is an example from a new feed I posted to test this. This one is in the list-view, but the no image in post issue still persists here too.



Please remedy this massive issue.

The issue is similar for me. The image is displayed, but it is very very low quality. Please look into this

In Feed settings, change Minimum Image Width: and Minimum Image Height: to something smaller, like 10. to see if image show up

Yes I have done this and it works i.e. the image shows, but then it is in very low quality. Please try to do something about the resolution.

Someone reported a simlar issue on a web application running through K2 or Joomla or something. Here's how they tackled it, maybe a direct source link rewrite is needed?:

Is actually very simple. Let's look at the resized image from facebook again. Let's see the link information.
https://fbexternal-a.akamaihd.net/sa...18e87a65_L.jpg

See it says akamaihd.net? That's facebook's server. But look what's after that. It says url=http%3A%2F%2Fmagazine.joomla.org%2Fmedia%2Fk2% 2Fitems%2Fcache%2F6af8f580e799444e5a52119018e87a65 _L.jpg

That's the direct url to the image on Joomla's site. Don't believe me? Let's remove those symbols and translate them into something for your browser to read. It becomes this,http://magazine.joomla.org/media/k2/...18e87a65_L.jpg <-- Click on it =D See the image now?

So what's the solution? Simple. We'll need Ja Social Feed plugin to scrape the URL of the image from the Facebook feed then filter away https://fbexternal-a.akamaihd.net/safe_image.php?*url= then download the image directly from the article source instead of thru Facebook =D The * being a wildcard.
