[Solved] Facebook Share Problems

edited October 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
When I post a link from my forum on FB, FB share only grabs the URL. Does anyone know why this happens? I need it to display the title of the post, like links normally appear on FB. For example, if I pasted the link to this post on FB, it would read "Facebook Sharing Problems" with the description and url underneath. But when i try to post a link from any of my forums, it looks like "" all in bold.

    Had to switch the rewrite urls value in config.php to "TRUE" and add the following to .htaccess:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]
