    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for this post, you’ve solved my problem. Except for one thing, I can’t make the image appear on my web page like they have done with yours. Is there something I’m missing, buzz boost is only showing a bullet point at the start of the post title, with no picture underneath.

    Thanks for you help.

    Jay
