Links to posts/topics aren't populating in Slack

(Jeremy M (Jerdog)) #1

So whenever I post a link to our site ( it doesn’t auto-expand/summarize like it does for other Discourse sites. Is there anything I should be checking?

Is the topic / post you are linking to in a secure category? Do you mean literally a link to the root page of the website?


Just tried it in my slack org with both the index page and an arbitrary topic, and it worked :tada:

Well of course it did… ffs… this is not my week. Doesn’t work for me at all but everything else does - will have to do some figuring out

It is possible to disable link previews for specific domains - maybe this has been done by accident on your slack organisation: Share links in Slack – Slack Help Center

That’s likely tbh… Doh…
