• Hi Mark,

    This title may not be relevant so feel free to change it.

    I’m looking to add an image so when I post to social profiles etc it displays an image instead of the NodeBB logo.

    How do I achieve this?

    Many thanks


  • @jac Good question. I raised something similar on the NodeBB community

    but, I never got a response 😠 - however, there is an OG image (Open Graph) which you can apply at

    /admin/settings/general

    Which (I think) should give you a default image (which you of course specify by uploading) for sharing on social media.

    EDIT - on checking, this does indeed work. Once the image is applied, the Open Graph tags are present in each post - see below

    <meta property="og:title" content="Social icon (Nodebb)" />

    That’s a good shout mate 😁😁


  • @jac I just tested my theory around using the OG image, and according to the Twitter card validator, it works fine
