Link preview not appearing

(James Cook) #1

I know there is a link preview feature in Discourse i.e. when you post a link to an article you get a nicely formatted preview box within the post. However they don’t seem to be appearing on my site.

To actually make the preview box (Discourse calls it Onebox) appear, the link has to be in a new line.
