I’m just working on a site that uses Mal’s eCommerce shopping cart to take payments.
I think the site owners have missed a step in configuring the cart… the bit that actually takes the payments through Paypal.

This is an example of a video being embedded into a WordPress post.
[aembed:”http://www.youtube.com/v/kE0pwJ5PMDg&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xd0d0d0&hl=en_GB&feature=player_embedded&fs=1″ 270 216]

Here are some examples of images that look reasonable when viewed on the facebook pages. Click on the images to see if these are actually being used in facebook.
OK, so we’ve had two failed attempts to improve the logo for the Anchor Golf facebook page. Well, that’s two that I’ve documented. How are we going to find the solution? I mean, on our personal pages the pictures look fine don’t they? What’s so special about the Anchor Golf logo that prevents me from getting a nice version to display “correctly” on Facebook?
This afternoon I did a search and found a very nice blog explaining some of the rules. One of which is the maximum size of your profile picture is 200 (wide) x 600 (height)
But this doesn’t solve the problem of the scaled logo appearing cropped when shown on the wall.
I tried some more messing about by haven’t learnt the hard and fast rules yet. However, I did have a play with someone else’s logo and got some better results.
So you’ve found out “How NOT to improve your facebook profile picture”. Now we’ll try another method to see if that really works
Do you want to improve your own or your company’s facebook profile picture? Here’s a method that doesn’t work…
