I have posted forum topics a number of times before on LinkedIn, and always this worked perfectly. A link image was retrieved (in my case showing the Humane Tech frontpage image).
But I just posted to LinkedIn and the image stayed blank. While this may not indicate a bug in Discourse (after all on LinkedIn things are continuously breaking, or behaving oddly), there may be some possible fix in Discourse that has the image show up again.
The LI post URL is:
And the forum post that this points to is:
If you think this is a LI issue, then I will create a support case there…
This is the image that was shown before:
It is not in the open graph metadata of the topic page, but it exists on the Humane Tech website.
According to LinkedIn, having the
og:image tag present should do the trick. So this would imply that previously this was available in the Discourse html source for the topic.
Note: I just created a cross-reference to this topic from our Moderators group, but that also does not show the Discourse logo in the link preview.
