    Peace and Blessings Family,

    When you add a link / URL to your post, the forum is going to try and get the image and 2 sentences of text from the article.

    Here is an example ... please note ... I am only entering in the URL :

    https://www.indy100.com/article/afr...an-global-economic-development-summit-7637666

    There was an Africa trade meeting with no Africans because all their visas got denied

    Each year, delegations from Africa meet with officials and business leaders in the US for the African Global Economic and Development (AGED) Summit. This year's event took place at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. But...
    indy100.com


    The rest is happening automatically (the text and image).

    It appears that old posts have been updated as well.


    Check this thread out :

    https://destee.com/threads/an-annua...s-for-all-100-african-delegates-were-d.89169/


    Check Sister Liberty's thread above ... she added a link to a Twitter page and it appears many of the tweets were included (now that this new feature has been added).

    Interestingly, it did not expand our own destee.com link above ... okay ... kewl and noted.

    This also works with Facebook, Instagram, and most other sites.


    https://google.com

    Google

    Search the world's information, including webpages, images, videos and more. Google has many special features to help you find exactly what you're looking for.
    google.com



    With Facebook, you must do the following to get the exact post URL :
    1. right click the post timestamp at the top of the post
    2. select copy link address
    3. then paste it into your post

    Here is an example of a Facebook post :





    This is something Brother jamesfrmphilly has been asking for.

    Signed, sealed, and delivered Brother James ... :wink:

    If you all see any problems post them to this thread.

    We are learning together as always.

    Much Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    I am not seeing the images show up yet, from all sites, but give it a bit of time as it should get better.

    Loving Us!

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Sorry for the technical difficulties today.

    I believe this feature is the culprit.

    It has been disabled until I can test / resolve.

    Let me know if you see any problems.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    Brother jamesfrmphilly and Family,

    I have re-enabled this feature.

    I think it is working now ... we shall test it out and see.

    Here's an interesting story that I'll start with, to show some success with this feature :

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-joe-arpaio-verdict-20170706-story.html

    Joe Arpaio, former sheriff in Arizona, is found guilty of criminal contempt

    Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, was found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a judge's order to stop racially profiling Latino's during patrols

    Let me know if you have problems with it or see errors.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    How will this affect Rule#11?

    Can we continue to post two(2) selected sentences from an article, along with the first two sentences(sometimes only one is) shown with the article's link?

    Will this new feature remove the need for Rule#11, entirely?

    The rules are the same.

    If the new link gives one sentence and we're allowed 2, looks like we'll get 3! ... :yaay:

    Much Love and Peace.
