Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem preview thumbnail inline link

  • Hello, since the latest update of WordPress 6.1.1, I discovered some issue with the automatically generated previews of inline links. (So I’m not talking about embedded links from other websites!) Usually, for every page I make a square 1000x1000px thumbnail as a ‘featured image’ and another one for the OpenGraph/Twitter cards plug-in that manages the preview link outside WordPress. The latter image size is 1200×630 px. Before the update, the automatically generated previews of inline links, used to select the 1000×1000 px featured image thumbnail. This image was shown on the left side of the preview link, in small size, with on the right side the first lines of the text of that page. However, now, when I try to embed an inline link via ‘Add Media – insert from URL’, WP selects the larger image of 1200×630 px, and then crops it. To be honest this looks very ugly, the thumbnail is not readable because of the random cutout. Besides that it makes the inline link appear much bigger than before. Where and how can I change this?
