There’s also something like an embed at post 464 under but generally (not specific to this instance) Discourse does not lend itself to captures of long topics so I reckon, that example is negligible.

Yeah, I don’t know what Discourse uses to auto-generate the preview. If there’s some meta tag we can add for this or something else, I’d be good to know what it is.
