Formatting for links to private topics

(Brady) #1

I’m not quite sure what the formatting for a link needs to be in order for Discourse to style it appropriately. I think half the time I post a link, it ends up being posted directly as a link like in this thread.

Is there a certain format I need to post links in for them to be formatted attractively?

This is a link to a private post in a public post – it cannot be oneboxed because it would leak the content of the private post.

Which post was private? The link goes to a post within a category that is visible to users of all trust levels. Only staff can create in that category but it is not private.

The link you posted requires me to log in:

I can read the source post ( without logging in, so showing the preview would leak the What-are-Workspaces-topic to me.

Perfect! Needed to change the settings for that category. Thanks so much for explaining that clearly :smile:
