FAQ

Is MightyShare free?

Yes! You can use MightyShare for free using our free account allowing you 50 renders a month. Paid plans start at $5 that allow you to generate hundreds of social images.

How does image generation work?

The image generation process is performed on our servers. This is done by the plugin creating a unique signed URL that allows your API Key to generate a social share image on our server. The URL is then put in your head tag to be used as an og:image. If you have Yoast SEO or RankMath installed the plugin will automatically write their og:images if enabled. Otherwise the plugin will create an og:image meta tag with your unique URL. Read our Privacy Policy

When is an image rendered?

The MightyShare plugin places a signed MightShare image URL onto your meta tags. Images aren’t rendered until that URL is visited (either by a user or crawler). Typically you’ll see a 5 second delay in a social preview image loading when it’s first shared.

Why aren’t my images showing up?

If you are using an SEO plugin be sure to have a default image set for the type of content you want MightyShare to show on. For example in Yoast SEO you need to go to the Facebook section and set a default Open Graph image, this allows MightyShare to run filtering those meta tags. Additionally make sure you’ve cleared any caching mechanisms you may have. Still having issues? Contact Us.

I love a simple, fast plugin that doesn’t add a ton of code bloat (and drag down my page load times). MightyShare’s been one of those plugins I didn’t even know I needed until I got it installed on a few of my blogs and it’s been a no-brainer to recommend to everyone I know. 🙏🙏🙏

With very little setup required, MightyShare is magic right out of the box. If you are looking to easily spice up links to your site, MightyShare is the way to go. All of the many pre-designed templates that are available are very well done, and will 100% enhance the appeal of your links when they're shared on compatible platforms. Also, all of MightyShare's features can be tested through the use of their free tier, which is another huge plus for anyone that doesn't want to commit right away, or even for those of you starting up a new site that won't need a ton of volume while you build up. tl;dr - Huge boost to the appeal and completeness of your site with little technical know-how required, 10/10 would recommend!
