    I just recommended my website via Facebook.

    But now I do see this small XenForo-logo which is originating from the default XF-image named "logo.og.png".

    I have now uploaded my custom image also named "logo.og.png" via FTP to my server into the folder /styles/default/xenforo , but it is still showing the defult XenForo-logo instead of my custom logo.

    When I go to my website into "Members / Recent Activity", then at the Sidebar at "Facebook-Recommendations", it still shows the default XenForo logo.og.png image

    What am I doing wrong ????

    Due to caching it can take several weeks for the image to update on the Facebook servers.

    well, but I uploaded my custom logo.og.png via FTP to my server.
    I did not upload this image to Facebook.

    Sorry, I do not understand.....

    Facebook caches the image on their server for use on their pages.

    do I understand correctly that I need to upload my custom "logo.og.png" to my own server only ?
    Or do I need to upload this image also at Facebook ?

    Just overwrite the logo.og.png image in the styles/.../xenforo directory on your own server.

    the location of this image should be editable in the admincp like we can do for the forum logo.

    Agreed. Plus, I had no idea the purpose and GOTCHA of this.

    You can always change the path to the images which will avoid any of them being overwritten during an upgrade.
    This really should be the case anyway for anyone who is using a custom style and/or images.

    Can I change the filename of the image from logo.og.png to logo2.og.png?
