-- url of the page with the problem -- : www.crux.nl/index.php?option=com_hikasho...r-marokko&Itemid=488
-- HikaShop version -- : 3.1.1
-- Joomla version -- : 3.7.5

I've tried a lot of things, but I cannot get Facebook to show the right product image and description when I try sharing a product.

On the open graph check website, it all looks good. But Facebook just doesn't pick that up.... Is there something I forgot?

Hi,

The open graph data in the header indeed looks good.
Maybe it's linked to the facebook module you have on the right of the page which messes with the facebook share button ?
What if you deactivate it ?

I tried deactivating the module (still is deactivated), but that doesn't help.

I don't get it, if the open graph data is good, than it should be good on Facebook, right?

That's right.
If the opengraph data is good, then it should work.

Maybe Facebook has some cache of your opengraph data ?
Try the recommended things on:

I am sorry, I see that I didn't get back to this issue. After having Facebook scrape it again, it worked ok.

But now I am trying to put a link to a hikashop category page (product listing) on Facebook. But that page doesn't seem to have any open graph tags at all. Is that right?

Hello,

A product listing do not have open graph.
If you really want to display a category page, you need a category listing with a "cid" to indicate which category is targeted.
But just with a product listing, you do not have "really" a category.
