Alternate Image in LinkedIn Post was created by Paul Gomirato

I configured the plugin to use "Intro" image as first priority. (I,C,CF,F,T)
It doesn't appear to be working as when pasting URP into LinkedIn post, the first image in the article continues to appear, not the loaded image in intro field.

What is the cause? Does this feature only work for Twitter? If so, why?

Hi Paul,

I have looked at the URL you provided.
This is the image that is set as og:image which Linkedin will first look for: macleanengineering.com/images/support/ri...ia-975-EV-Bolter.jpg

When pulling up the page in the (new) linkedin inspector, you can see that Linkedin takes that same image, so it appears it is working correct.


On the post inspector you can see where it finds the image (og:image metatag) and that this is indeed the correct one.

Note that the (new) linkedin post inspector refreshes the linkedin cache and fetches everything fresh from the provided url.
