    Hello.. Nice plugin.. I would also like for it to create previews in comments people leave.

    Ok… here.. I found a link it won’t make a preview for.. As I find more I will add them here.

    Well basically we just use this API for trying to get those automatic values: https://microlink.io

    If that doesn’t work you can still manually fill in all the fields!

    How do I manually fill in those fields? I didnt look at the plugins source code yet but is there like… a file in the directory I would edit? I’m also afraid to use the plugin esitor becauae wordpress gives a warning about it. and if there’s an update it would overwrite my changes.. but sure. Id love to try to improve its preview option. I just don’t know where /how to edit it..

    Does this plugin already give previews for links that are in comments??

    Are you using the Classic Editor or Gutenberg Block Editor? In both you can manually set the preview title and summary if the automatic retrieval through that API doesn’t work.

    It’s not our API, just to be clear.
