Contao extension

Social images

Enable the images on your website for the social portals like Facebook or Google+. The images are fetched from all content elements, news and events visible on the current page. Beside that, you can also set a main image per website root (e.g. the company logo).

The extension is sponsored by Empressio.


The extension is activated in the page layout settings in the Social images section. You can also limit the number of images that will be used as well as the minimum width and height of an image. Usually, the social networks like Facebook and Google+ require at least 200x200px images.

Website image

You can set a default image for the whole website that will be used in the first place. This is useful when you would like to use company logo for example. To enable it, browse to the Site structure and edit the root page settings. Then simply choose the image in the Social images section.

How does it work?

Collected images are inserted in the <head> section according to the Open Graph protocol:

<meta property="og:image" content="">
<meta property="og:image" content="">
<meta property="og:image" content="">
