Featured Image Update

When adding a featured image to a post in the forum - then sharing the link on socials eg Twitter - should the featured image appear in your social post? I’m still seeing the grey box. Is there a trick to this?

My experience has been that the featured image does appear in a social post. I don’t use Twitter much anymore but I’ve certainly had Tweets where the featured image showed once I added the URL to the Community. Do you see your featured image in your post when you are editing like this:

I’ve also had it work well on Linked in. Have you tried with several posts or is it just one that you are having issues with?

It only works in stories not resources or discussions.

The March 2023 update says featured images now work in all post sites: https://education.apple.com/en/resource/250011028

I just tried a resource with a featured image on Twitter and it worked:
