    I have NO clue what the error could be here, but whenever I try to share my website pages or whenever I click on the image picture on Google Search the only thing that comes up is Chinese Mandarin characters - Traditional Han to be more specific. I tried to fix the meta, but that didn't help.

    Could someone please take a look at my code at David L. Gray - Catholic Author & Speaker and tell me where I goofed up. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!! :rambo:

    I don't see the problem myself, so it may be an isolated case.

    However, you've got two meta encoding tags that could be throwing things off. You only need one, and you should probably only use utf-8 encoding (that's the default, and it's usually a safe bet.)

    Change one of them to this:
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    And get rid of the other one entirely.

    See where that takes you.

    Thanks, David! Glad everything worked out for you.

    And there's some nicer-looking stuff coming from me on behalf of clients. Hopefully today depending on how much better I'm feeling.

    Oh. I got you now.

    Can you post a link of the image search you're talking about? I'd have to see what you're seeing.

    I guess I should have done that from the very beginning - sorry. Here it is:

    And even when you used utf-8 encoding, you got the same thing? Because that should have solved it.

    If that doesn't do it, the only other thing I can come up with is that Facebook is having problems with your code itself, possibly because it was generated using what looks to be Microsoft Word or something similar. If that's the case, try creating a plain HTML page using a text editor with nothing in it but your content and see if you can "Share" it without issues. If you can, then your problem is that your page that is throwing the Chinese characters needs to be recoded.

    Ok, thanks again - I agree the correction you gave me should have fixed it, and now I'm thinking it is just a cache that the share is using. Yeah, this is my third redesign, so I have a bunch of junk on those scripts that I've carried over. I should have just done it from scratch this time.

    Yeah, appears to be cache because other people are able to share it fine in English - so thanks for that!
