    Hi there, I see that the default image that is pulled when linking to my website on social media (LinkedIn and Facebook in particular) is the Image used for the secondary video. Is there a way to instead pull the image slotted for primary video? Or better yet, to customize the image that is used when posting to social media? Thank you! I have really enjoyed this template!

    The blog I need help with is: brookemeyersf.com

    Hi,

    Glad you are enjoying the theme.

    WordPress tells Facebook to use the featured image of the page you are sharing. Since the secondary video section uses the featured image as the background, that is the image that is shared. I don’t believe there is a way to change that based on this article:
