Hi,

I can't seem to add a link and have it 'unfurl'. i see other posts where this works but mine don't. i've toggled BB code on/off but not joy. do you have to be a specific user to do this or am i missing something?, example below:

It just really depends whether or not the RTG server can successfully grab a snippet from the other website or not, so I doubt there is anything you are specifically doing wrong. You don't need to add any BB code or anything either, just drop it in the visual editor.

I will try the Google link you posted above and I will be surprised if it unfurls for me:

Ah, yep google wasn’t a good example. I’d been trying to post in the “right move voyeurism” thread and none of my links unfurled but other similar links were.
Maybe I just need more patience for the site to retrieve the data.
Cheers for the reply
