I need help resolving something. I have a wordpress blog (cannot list) that when you paste a link from an article into facebook it pulls the main sites description, image, NOT the post articles. It does pull the proper title and permalink, but NOT the description and image.
Here is what i got so far, basically, I need to know how use wordpress codex to pull the description and image from a particular post. Here is what i got so far which is in the header.php file of my wordpress theme
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:title" content="<?php the_title() ?>"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="<?php  the_permalink() ?>" />
<meta property="og:description" content="<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink()); ?>"/>
