When I look at your site, I don't see the OGP data:
view-source:https://www.storyfb.com/

So there is something missing.
Since it doesnt worked i remove it, also the code cause database error

phpbb forum also no preview thumbnial in whatsapp
viewtopic.php?f=641&t=2439891&p=14833616#p14832366
That makes sense since phpBB doesn't have OGP tags as a default.

Well, like RMcGirr said, it's probably due to cloudflare being active on your site. That caches quite some stuff which is a good thing, but you'll have to wait for your changes to be pushed through all their servers.

Well one way to find out for certain would be to disable cloud flare.

Since you still don't have OGP data in your website, Whatsapp or any other app has nothing to parse.

My extension does exactly the opposite: it parses OGP data from pasted links and shows it as thumbnails in the posts. If I understand your question correctly, you want pasted links to your website to show a thumbnail, a title and a description, on apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.

If you want that, you need to add this data to your site. First step is to read an understand the basics of OGP by visiting http://ogp.me/
Second, you need to place this in you overall_header.php file:

Code: Select all

<meta property="og:title" content="YOUR SITENAME, POSSIBLY TOPIC TITLE OR SUCH" />
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:url" content="{U_CANONICAL}" />
<meta property="og:image" content="A LINK TO YOUR THUMBNAIL IMAGE" />
That's it. You can expand this with various options and logic, but the above is the very basic requirement.

For my site story.com

Code: Select all

<meta property="og:title" content="STORYFB.COM" />
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
<meta property="og:url" content="{U_CANONICAL}" />
<meta property="og:image" content="storyfb.com/image" />
is this correct?
