Can't get Featured Image on Facebook.

My user attaches a Featured Image to a post & publishes. SmartCrawler Pro (SCP) should pick up that image in the OG & use it for Facebook. It does not. Have also been using the FB Dev Debug tool to re-scrape, not working.

Example: https://phat****.phatafrica.com/press-releases/award-winning-brazilian-singer-luedji-luna-in-concert/

Getting the following error.

"Error while downloading https://phat****.phatafrica.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/LUEDJI-LUNA-Instagram.png with HTTP response code: 404"

Please check and help.

    Hello Marcel

    I hope you are doing good today and thank you for giving us time to check this more deeply.

    I checked this on my lab site by adding an App ID and also without an App Id. I found that it worked perfectly when the App Id was used but gave the same error as in your case when tested it without an App Id.

    After checking your site, I found that the App Id is missing in the App Id field. An app id is a mandatory field for everything to work correctly. The fb:app tag in your HTML HEAD will allow the Facebook scraper to associate the Open Graph entity for that URL with an application. This will enable any admins of that app to view Insights about that URL and any social plugins connected with it.

    Here is how you can create an app id by creating an app on Facebook:

    Please let me know if you face any issue in between or need any help further.

    Regards,
