Reducing Discourse forum logo size in the previews of links sent to WhatsApp

I’m having an issue with the size of my Discourse forum logo when it’s forwarded to WhatsApp. The logo takes up too much space on mobile phones, but it’s fine when I look at it on my WhatsApp for PC. I think this is a screen size issue.

I would like to be able to reduce the size of the logo when it’s displayed in a link on WhatsApp mobile. Is there a way to do this?

I’ve attached screenshots of the issue for your reference.


On mobile


Hi Abiolaakeju,

I think that it’s up to Whatsapp to choose how they display the content of link previews.

That said, I don’t have the issue on my phone.


What happens when you add a picture to that Topic/Post?

Signal will show the thumbnail. I believe WhatsApp will do the same … might look nicer …

Even when I did, the thumbnail still showed my forum logo…

Rebuild the post. Might take a little while.

Try it with a brand new post. Whatsapp and others usually cache the response to a specific URL for a while :slight_smile:


I didn’t experience that:
