Looks like you may have skipped a step along the way. What's happening is that the database on your dev site hasn't updated the url settings - one of them is still pointing to the live site. So, you need to go into your database and fix it. PHPMyAdmin should be located at: http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin
Then you need to click the database name on the left, then on the wp_options table.
There's 2 places to check and update the url to your local dev url. The first should be the first row in wp_options, it's called siteurl. The second is the 'home' url. If you don't see it on the first page, click at the bottom to go to the next page and you should see it in the list. Make sure both those fields have your local .dev url and then you should be good to go!

Hi Anna
If you followed the steps, it would not be possible for your dev site to affect your live site!
The only thing I can think of is that you didn't do the step with your wp-config file and it's still connected to the database on your live site. If you make a change to a post/page on your dev site does it show up on your live site?

Hi Anna
If you've successfully created your sandbox site then you can just make updates to it as you would any other site. It's separate than your main site so nothing you do on the sandbox will affect your live site.

Hi Wayne
You are correct - if you're only making CSS changes and placing them in the Custom CSS area of your theme then you are all good!

Hi Elias
This isn't a WordPress setting. The way FB displays the shared link info is up to them. Check out this page: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/best...
and click on #4 "Optimize your image sizes to generate great previews"
Sounds like you just have to upload an even bigger image in the social tab.

Hi Elias
I ran this url through the Facebook debugger: http://funny-photos.gr/wp-content/uploads/2014/09...
And it seems to be picking up the correct image.
Your theme might be resizing the featured image, but if you use the Social tab in WordPress SEO for the full size image it should work. Remember that Facebook caches information, so if you make any changes to the post, run the url through the debugger to make Facebook get the latest info.

Hey Timothy - thanks for the comment! Formidable is a great plugin. The paid version is comparable to Gravity Forms in the advanced features it has, but the free version is a good solution for a solid, free contact form for most people's purposes.
