Ok so, honestly this whole time I thought this was about pasting a link in a post, and seeing the open graph data (link preview card) in the post. I know there is now at least one extension out there that does this. But again, I was thinking this was going to be a more official or other option for link previews in Flarum posts.
Sounds like instead this is what other sites see when you share a Flarum link.
When I share links from my Flarum forum it already shows an image and summary of the post. I think that’s thanks to the SEO or PWA extension. I forget which one. I have both installed and at this point take it for granted.
Sounds like a lot of work is going into this but I don’t fully understand the benefits.
I guess it’s a much, much nicer preview compared to whatever these other extensions do? In fact the more I think about it, no other CMS systems or Forums do it this way, that I know of… An image of the post itself essentially… So don’t get me wrong, this is pretty cool. Maybe even groundbreaking! But, I’ve just been a little confused about what this is for. 😅
