I have been having a problem with some links at Facebook. Sometimes I try to post a link to my website or my lovebirds blog, but no thumbnail image is shown for me to pick. Sometimes it says "0 of 0" images, sometimes it says other numbers, but nothing appears when you use the arrows. But some (most) pages work.

For instance, these don't work:
http://www.mariaadelaidesilva.net/pagimes/odontogl.htm ("1 of 3"; all blank)
http://www.mariaadelaidesilva.net/photo/mgnature.htm ("2 of 2", all blank, although the page has several thumbnails)
and these do:
http://www.mariaadelaidesilva.net/pagimes/lmelv.htm ("1 of 3"; the other two images appear blank)
http://www.mariaadelaidesilva.net/agapornis/?p=2958 ("2 of 2"; both appear correctly)

Do you have any idea? If you try to post those "faulty" pages in your own FB page, do images appear?

Try a different browser and see what you see. The second page you listed above I see all kinds of images. The 3rd page, I looked at the source code and there's only one image and everything that's there is showing.

Maybe I don't understand the question?  ;)

It's not the pages that have problem, I see the iamges in them as well. It's when I post them at FB, was this that you tried? The other a images in that link are the page logo and a mail icon, I suppose.

Oh I get it now.  ::)

I tried sending a link to a photo page on Facebook to someone with the display this page for the public and she says it shows no images. FB has some problems, doesn't it?  ;D

Thanks, it's odd indeed, and I wanted to be sure it was not just a problem on my side.

you know, you probably haven't configured your website to properly display thumbnails yet. Here.. found something that might help you out:

Interesting tutorial, but it isn't exactly what I need.  Images already are on the pages of my website or my blog.  Sometimes FB detects them, sometimes it doesn't, as shown in the examples of my first post.
