The developer explains how to deal with it in the support forum.

Create Facebook app ID

Create a Facebook App ID on the Facebook for Developer page below. If you have already created, the created app ID will be displayed on the following page.

https://developers.facebook.com/apps/

Copy app ID and app secret

Make a copy of “App ID” and “app secret”. Each item can be confirmed by “Dashboard”-> “Settings”-> “Basic”.

Edit functions.php

Add the code to “functions.php” in the theme file.

“functions.php”

//Open Graph and Twitter Card Tags
add_filter( 'fb_og_update_cache_url', 'my_fb_og_update_cache_url' );
function my_fb_og_update_cache_url( $url ) {
