When viewing media images the Twitter Card is shown as the below...
Code:
<meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="CoolSciFi">
<meta name="twitter:creator" content="KW802">
<meta name="twitter:title" content="Spock Heineken Beer Ad">
<meta name="twitter:description" content="Spock in a rather suggestive ad for Heineken beer.">
<meta name="twitter:image" content="media/spock-heineken-beer-ad.9/full">
<meta name="twitter:url" content="https://aliensoup.com/media/spock-heineken-beer-ad.9/">
... but the image does not show up when viewing the cards.

This post (https://twittercommunity.com/t/doma...ut-image-not-showing-in-the-validator/30722/2) from a Twitter support member indicates that the full URL is required for the image URL. So instead of "media/spock-heineken-beer-ad.9/full" it needs to be presented as "https://aliensoup.com/media/spock-heineken-beer-ad.9/full".

{Hhhhm...... usually those kinds of questions means that it was a known issue that may have been taken care of already... just what version am I running?.... ah, I'm at 1.1.0 and there was a 1.1.1 maintenance release... let me read the release notes for it... yep, there it is... let's update and see if it's fixed... OK, fixed, I better check the rest of the version numbers while here :coffee:}

What version of the Gallery are you running?
I was running 1.1.0 but I updated to 1.1.1 tonight and that took care of it, thanks. (y)
