I’ve tried searching on here for this but I can’t see that anyone’s raised it.
Basically it seems like on DrownedInSound for some sites when I paste a URL and at the other end there’s an image the post just displays the image but it isn’t a link back to it.
E.g. this reddit thread has the first post as an image only (description is in the title):
and when I just paste the URL in my post it becomes completely free of all context:
The same thing happens with Flickr:
is rendered as only the picture
If you quote the post you get the link back so you can still effectively get it again. I assume there’s a fault somewhere in the way it’s parsing these URLs. I know Instagram did this for a brief period but it’s working again.
Or is this due to the sites themselves?
