    Getting this error message:

    I tried unchecking “Verify Featured Image” but did not help.

    The answer is in the FAQ – #1.4:

    I also get this messge several times a day (many posts). As you can see, it’s not answered in the FAQs. The problem is that – why ever – SNAP uses https instead of http. And the certificate of the hoster is a self signed one.

    Array ( [0] => Array ( [date] => 2015-06-04 10:36:45 [act] => Error [msg] => -=ERROR=- Server can’t access it’s own images.

    How do I tell SNAP not to use https?

    I’ve solved this issue. If you are hosting the website yourself, you will need to resolve the hostname locally.

    On windows:

    Windows -> System32 -> drivers -> etc -> hosts

    add your local ip, followed by the hostname:

    192.168.***.*** example.com

    This will allow the plugin to resolve the host locally, instead of trying to contact the DNS server and getting confused since the destination is hosted locally.
