    Wrong image selected on FB share/Wordpress Cache?

    I have a tiny problem,I reckon I am missing a trick,but this is really confusing me.

    I am using Shiword Theme,it's at

    I am using Social Feather and Sharepress plugins to share on and automatically post to social media.

    For some reason,even though I have featured images set,when I share or post,the wrong image is coming up.

    Yet when I go to debug in FB Dev, the correct image is there..

    Does Wordpress cache images?The reason I ask,is the image that the share selects is one that I have deleted from wordpress media galelry already.If they do (which I didn't think they did) how do I go about clearing it?

    It's only a minor issue,but a really annoying one.

    Facebook caches images. Use this article to see how to clear its cache. I've used it several times to removing an old image and use a new one when sharing. Method 3 has the solution I used.
    I build WordPress with the Volatyl Framework.
