When I post a link to our page on Facebook, a nice pop-up appears with information about our site. Problem is, the icon that is coming with it is a birthday cake. I'd prefer our class logo. Have I done something wrong?

Also please note how everything in the second line is run together. I've been having trouble with that first paragraph since I right and left justified it. On the homepage it shows up with far too many spaces. On Facebook there's not enough spaces. Suggestions?

Your Youtube video was about 10 pixels too wide for the space you were inserting it. Thus Firefox bumps it down a bit. I just decreased the width by 10 pixels and you're all set.

Regarding your Facebook question, I'm not sure why Facebook pulls certain images or if that can be controlled or not. If it can it's something that would have to be set on that end. Maybe another Facebook user here may have an answer.

Hi..On facebook click the birthday cake and it should come up with a box which will allow you to change it to your school logo. Hope this helps. Goodluck!

Yes, when you post the link on FB you should get a box that appears with a pic and arrows to change the picture to what you want (I think it pulls 4 different pictures from your home page) and you can change it. I have posted many links to classmates via FB this way and have never had an issue.

Good luck!

Brad I'm not using Firefox. I tried it after you suggested, and never could get it to run properly, so I'm back to using IE 8 (I also tried to downgrade to IE 7 but could not find a way to do that either). The Google Analytics I ran said over 90% of my users use IE, so I decided to try to work around problems I'm having. LOL...the problem just tuckered me out!

So regarding that first paragraph on my homepage, I'm still seeing it all spread out on this site, and all scrunched on Facebook. Maybe I need to make the Youtube box even smaller? I don't understand why this would only effect the first paragraph.

Oh I see what you mean. You had your first paragraph's alignment set to "justify". I removed the justify and it should be normal now.

Ok, I'm still showing very old photos on my facebook's not showing any new pictures...I have arrows to change it, but only old photos as an option. Any ideas?

Showing very old photos on what specific Facebook posts? You mean posts on Class Connection and not posts on Facebook itself correct? Can you point me to a specific location that's showing old photos? Any photos you've ever uploaded to Facebook (or directly to Class Connection) should be available to you.

When I post: to facebook, it comes up with a picture or two, and I can use the arrow key to change it, but there are only three pictures, and all of them are old...none of them are from the current homepage.

Interesting. Unfortunately that's all native Facebook though. Why they're allowing you to select from older photos I have no idea. Maybe they cache them for awhile. My guess is you might see this update at some point in the future but that's about all I know about this.
