og image tag not working with blog post

I need to have the main image show up when posting one of my blogs to social media. Manly Facebook. I've try to replicate what you have done for me in the past but because of other pieces you assisted me with in the blog section is doesn't work. Can you assist me with this? See PM for the webpage i'm talking about.
Thanks

I'd have to see the php page to see why it isn't setting the attribute. I can see on the page that the header has:
<meta property="og:image" content="https://rnrjourney.com" />

but it needs the full path to the image. I'd have to look at the code to determine why that might be.

I will attached the page for your review. If you wold like to view it via FTP the login information is in the PM. The original website that you first set this up for me on also had the code below. I tried to use it while changing the "blogPost" and "Recordset1" to the right ones. When I include this code I lose the page to a PHP error.

<?php
$blogContent = WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'blogPost', 'Content', false, $row_Recordset1['ContentPageSetOrder']);
$blogImage = preg_match('/<img [^\r\n]*src="([^"]*)/i',$blogContent,$retVal);
//var_dump($retVal);
?>

Hi Ray,

Did you get a chance to review the web page? If it's not a easy fix and we need to set up a PS let me know.

Thanks,

Do you have the original working page that I did? I can show you the code you need to copy and paste to this page. Otherwise I'd have to re-write it. There has to be a line or lines of code that refer to "$retVal" that are missing from this page. That is where it got the image.

You are missing this section of code in your file:

php:
<?php

$blogContent 
WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'blogPost''Content'false$row_Recordset1['ContentPageSetOrder']);
$blogImage preg_match('/<img [^\r\n]* src="([^"]*)/i',$blogContent,$retVal);
?>



That is what picks up the image from the cms content so you can add it to the og:image tag. It should appear directly above the og:image tag.

Thanks Ray, do I need to add a section in the blog for the image? Where is it pulling the image from?

I implemented the code but the image isn't showing up. Do I need to change something in the RS?

Thanks

You should just have to update to reference the blog post content on this page like:

WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'BlogPosts', 'Content', false, $row_BlogRS['ContentPageSetOrder'] )

so the code would be:

php:
<?php

$blogContent 
WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection$PowerCMSConnection'BlogPosts''Content'false$row_BlogRS['ContentPageSetOrder'] );
$blogImage preg_match('/<img [^\r\n]* src="([^"]*)/i',$blogContent,$retVal);
?>
