Twitter Cards Have grey Images


#1

Hi, I’m in need of a little help with the Twitter Cards? All of our cards on our twitter still work, but they pull up blank images. I’ve tried the Validator again and everything comes up green:
INFO: Page fetched successfully
INFO: 23 metatags were found
INFO: twitter:card = summary tag found
INFO: Card loaded successfully

Etc. It says the URL is whitelisted, but when it fetches the Card to show that it’s working still it comes up grey/blank. I have no Robots.txt file on the website. http://getreallol.com/

http://getreallol.com/robots.txt

This file explicitly blocks all robots from accessing /wp-content/ where your images are.

How do I find that and change it?


#4

Ok, I found a way to edit it, I put this in there, but still no images?

User-agent: Twitterbot
Disallow: *
Allow: /wp-content/uploads/*

I think the rules order and precedence there will still cause all URLs to be disallowed. We’d usually recommend:

User-agent: Twitterbot
Disallow:

Thanks, Still not getting pictures, just a gray box where the picture go

Sorry for the frustration here. I’m still seeing the following in http://getreallol.com/robots.txt so maybe there is some caching issue somewhere.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /cgi-bin/
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Disallow: /wp-includes/
Disallow: /wp-content/
Disallow: /trackback/
Disallow: /index.php
Disallow: /xmlrpc.com
Disallow: /wp-login.php
Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/
Disallow: /comments/feed/

User-agent: Yandex
Disallow: /

User-agent: Baiduspider
Disallow: /
