head_tags
#1
Hi,

I'm having difficulty with showing my company logo in a shared link (Whatsapp).
I have filled in the head_tag in usersc/includes and also put a link to my logo in there.
But when I share the link everything shows up but the logo. Any idea what is going wrong there?

I know once that stuff gets cached on whatsapp/fb side, it's sometimes hard to get out. Is there anything you can clear over there?

I cleared the WhatsApp cache...its still not displaying the picture.

Can it be the way I linked to it? I used the URL (https://www.sitename.com/picturename).

Hah! So it all hinged on the image being less than 300KB?
Wow, thanks for that info Mudmin. It worked Smile

Perhaps you should add that bit of info in the head_tags.php on the next update.
