Image hash codes are appearing in

It’s rare, if ever, that the image caption contains any useful content - most of the time they are lengthy hash codes. If these captions were stripped from the
og: tags it would help my social media shares look clearer (I rely on shares to bring people to my forum - they’re an important part of my branding).
What is the “raw” content of the actual post?
<sub>One Tree Hill, Honor Oak</sub>
## :tada: Welcome to Lewisham
- The highest number of [parks and green spaces](http://www.lewisham.gov.uk/inmyarea/openspaces/Pages/default.aspx) of any London borough.
- London's largest free fireworks [at Blackheath](http://www.lewisham.gov.uk/inmyarea/events/whats-on/fireworks/Pages/default.aspx) each year.
hmmm but why not call the image something sane like:
image instead of
when I just pasted an image in I got!
I uploaded the image on my phone. I wouldn’t expect any member of my forum to a) know how to or b) care enough to edit the following:
What’s more, I wouldn’t want [image] appearing in my social shares, either. Or anything that appears in square brackets.
Let me upload an image from my phone
Yep I see the guid in there @sam
Well maybe we should improve that specifically for giant guids, add better handling for file names uploaded from mobile
Yes we should handle this guid case for mobile, @gerhard can you add this to your list? I assume all iOS devices will benefit from better behavior here.
Should we remove the
[image] tags from the excerpt used in
twitter:description or is replacing the GUID in images uploaded from iOS enough?
Showing the alt text of images in those descriptions feels like a bad idea most of the time, but I guess there are some usecases where it makes sense to include them.
I’d like for the [image] tags to be removed from excerpts, yes (others may, of course, disagree)
Probably fine, go for it and see what people think.
@ChrisBeach There shouldn’t be any image tags in the descriptions anymore when you share a topic on Twitter and Facebook. All you need to do is update to latest for this to work.
Many thanks @gerhard. Appreciate the change and the notification.
