Permalink post to facebook timeline. Cockpit shows instead

Postby malinux » Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:08 pm UTC

When I post a comic to facebook with the permalink, It shows the image from "Things Explainer" instead of the actual comic.
This might indeed be a facebook problem. If not, is there something that could be done on the xckd side? If it is a pebcak issue, what am I doing wrong? I know I can cycle images and choose the cartoon, but even then the cockpit from "Things Explainer" shows instead of the comic.

It's a Facebook thing. When you post a link, and it brings up the link preview, you can select which image is used by using the arrow buttons at the top left of the image. The actual comic should be the third one.

Edit - Ah, you already knew that.

I tried and got the same result. The best I can suggest is removing the image preview and forcing people to click though.

Yes, I already knew that :)

That's seem to be the only option to do at the moment :)

Thanx for helping sorting out the issue

There's no place like xkcd, or is it?
