Better meta tags for link previews in Discord

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if we could get an improvement on the OpenGraph/Twitter Cards/oEmbed meta tags for link previews. Specifically it would be nice to have Discord previews more spiffy when linking something from these forums.

 

Currently this is what you get when linking from the forums onto Discord:

The issues I find with this is:

  1. The image is too big and takes up too much space, a thumbnail might work a lot better. On the other hand it doesn't look as bad on Twitter & FB, but I have seen a site where the Discord preview uses a thumbnail and the Twitter/FB previews a bigger image.
  2. The description only shows the top comment on that page, if linking a specific comment it would be nice to have it display a summary of that comment linked instead.

I have reduced the size of the APB share logo. Investigating #2.

TYVM @Sandawg!

 

I wonder if changing <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image"> to <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary"> would make a big difference?

 

That way on Twitter it would look more like this:

instead of this:

and then it might even change up the Discord embeds to look just as good and clean too.
